Let's Explore: Hunt and Gather in Minneapolis, Minnesota
We shared lots more pix from our trip to Hunt and Gather on Instagram. Check it out meow!!

Hunt and Gather describes itself as “a vintage amusement store. Groovy. Kooky. Fresh. Unusual. Fun oddities and curiosities. Two levels crammed full.”

We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves.

Part circus, part thrift store, totally curated awesomeness. In fact, it’s so awesome it’s overwhelmingly awesome. We love it. It’s easy to lose yourself for hours…and you are guaranteed to find a treasure you never knew you needed.

In our case, Jack bought a beanie hat…with a teddy bear attached. So now he’s been wearing a teddy bear on the top of his head for the past few weeks. A treasure I never knew my hubby needed. He actually gave it to me as a gift…but I’ve yet been able to yank it off his noggin! Hehe.

Jack doesn’t love being in front of the camera…but put a teddy bear on his head and it’s a whole different story! Hehe. More pix from our trip to Hunt and Gather on Facebook.

I have friends from overseas planning their vacation to Minnesota this summer…one of their top stops is Hunt and Gather! Imagine being on vacation from England and spending your vacation going to an antique store in Minneapolis…that gives you an idea of just how special this place really is.
