"Flamingos and Anthony Shane Florist"
I chanced upon this scene today, and I had a good time meeting people and looking at their wares. Anthony Shane Florist and Flamingos are located in Powderhorn neighborhood in Minneapolis. Anthony Shane bought the building and moved his shop of 16 years from 19th and Nicollet in November 2009. New address: 3404 Cedar Avenue South, Minneapolis. Hours: 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. For more information: http://www.anthonyshaneflorist.com or call 612.871.9388.

Flamingos is open once a month for occasional sales by several vendors (including Linda and Tim, pictured here), and it’s happening this Wednesday through Sunday, September 8 through 12, 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. I saw all kinds of vintage furniture on the sidewalk in front of the stores. I had to see what was happening. The first floor and basement are full of all sorts of collectible and antique dishes, lamps, furniture, artwork, knickknacks, old photos, books, and other items. Many of the vendors are local. It’s a welcoming environment and full of what are called “divine finds.” For future sales dates, http://www.flamingosdivinefinds.com or call 612.767.4548.
