Imagine a dedicated group whose purpose is to create vibrant downtown experiences by transforming empty retail spaces into equity opportunities for minority- and women-owned businesses. A group who is passionate about opening up business opportunities that may not have been possible before.
We have that very group here in Minneapolis! The Chameleon Consortium.
We were so delighted to be invited to join the Chameleon Shoppes on the skyway level in the IDS Center in downtown Minneapolis for the holiday shopping season. We are among 12 other local brands whose wares, talent, passion and philanthropic missions will knock your socks off! (and one of the brands, Hippy Feet, will be happy to sell you some new ones! Ha!) The brands are: B+D Custom Crafts, The Cat Lab, Create Laser Arts, EOcreations, Excelsior Candle Co., Hippy Feet, Jac + Violet, Oscar & Olivia, RighteouSouls, Siena Soap Company, Twiggy Fresh and Wondrous Crane.
What better way to check off the items on your holiday shopping list!? Need candles, jewelry, body care, apparel, ceramics, home decor or dog goodies? We got ya covered. Founder, Kristin Trudeau, will be in the shop most Wednesdays, so come by and say hi! (so sorry to say, it’s not a dog-friendly shop.)
