Some local shopping-related blogs of note:
I just did a new post on sales and shopping in St. Paul for the651. Check it out. An excerpt:
After two long years of vintage collecting, REfind Vintage is shutting down with a weekend long sale event on its restyled, repurposed vintage finds. Stop by Friday night for heart-shaped cookies, tarts, wine and other treats. (4–9 p.m. Friday, February 11 & 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, February 12.
