We found Hippie Heaven…it’s in Minneapolis!

Present Moment Herbs and Books (3456 Grand Ave S, Minneapolis, MN)  is one of the largest herb and homeopathic remedy retailers in the United States.

They sell herbal extracts, rare homeopathic remedies, essential oils, flower essences, vitamins and supplements. We especially love their vast selection of soothing incense. It’s more affordable than buying online…plus you can sniff to see which scent is your favorite!

Present Moment Herbs and Books is best known for their unique and eclectic assortment of books…they have thousands of titles specializing in healthy living, spiritual, new age, esoteric and other obscure, mind-bending subjects.

Our favorite spot in the entire store is the basement…which is full of used books! These are priced quite affordably with many titles in the $3.00 to $5.00 range.

Our TikTok is where you’ll find behind-the-scenes clips that don’t make it into our travel videos…it’s tons-o-fun, you betcha!!
