ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Minnesota Road Trip ~ **HUNT & GATHER**

It's been 7 Months since Frog Husband and I have shopped Hunt & Gather in Minneapolis, Minnesota... WOW!!! ~ OMG!!! The whole upper floor had a HUGE FACE LIFT!!! ~ The Hot Industrial Look Abounds!*!*!   

 The Displays were Just AMaZiNg!*!*!



 Although the sun was out ~ IT WAS COLD... Lots of SNOW still on the ground...  In prior years - I remember wishing I had my sandals on!!!



 I always get C*R*A*Z*E*D when we pull in the parking lot!!!



 Take a close look at the "Pussy Willows" in-the-snow!!!



 The Store looked it's Best-Ever!*!*!  Lots of unusual pieces...



 S*U*R*P*R*I*S*E  Encounter!!!
"ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!" meets Mary of Urban Farmgirl @ Hunt & Gather!!!  DO hop on over to Mary's Blog and SEE what Mary and her friend were up to in Minnesota!!!



 These Vintage Sign Lights were sooooo appropriate for the Store!!!  How lucky the owner was to spell out HUNT & GATHER - and have them working!!!



 My FaVoRiTe Pic!!!  OMG - BeSt-Ever!*!*!  I only wish we had room to take them home for keepers...  LoVed BOTH Cabinets equally as well...



 Industrial mixed with Shabby...






 LoVed the Mirror...  FaB PaTiNa and Chippiness!*!*!



 Sweet...



 Barkcloth & SHaBBies with a hint of Architectural SaLVage and Industrial...



Check back later in the week to SEE MORE of what we did!!!

    I hope you found good things! Did you come home with a big load of treasures? I didn't find as much as I had hoped...to buy anyway.
