One of my favorite things about living in Uptown Minneapolis is all of the fantastic boutiques. A leisurely shopping excursion around Uptown can result in the discovery of some truly unique items. And not only do many local boutiques carry a variety of unique pieces, they oftentimes offer friendlier service than you will receive in large chain department stores. And while many savvy shoppers are well aware of the benefits of shopping locally, there are even more who are unaware of the treasures that can be found in Uptown’s boutiques.

In an effort to spread the word about Uptown’s fantastic offerings, eight local boutiques are teaming up to host an Uptown Holiday Boutique Crawl on Thursday, December 13th from 5 – 9 p.m. The Crawl will feature an evening full of shopping, promotions, discounts, and more!

If you haven’t yet checked out any of these unique boutiques, do yourself a favor and check out the Uptown Holiday Boutique Crawl for some great deals on great holiday gifts!
