Last week I started a weekly post where I'm going to spot light some of my favorite small businesses. I love the unique options local businesses have to offer, and you can't beat the people. I always find a friendly face when I stop by these shops. I'm a bit (okay...a lot) of a chatty cathy, and I feel like I'm walking into Cheers when I stop by Main Street, U.S.A. Rest assured. I get nothing from promoting these businesses. I just want to share the little gems I have found in the midwest.
This week I'm featuring Aviena in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. (Click here for their Facebook page) I found this shop while cruising Craigslist. They have a nice mix of vintage clothing and repurposed furniture (from local artists). They are also a Annie Sloan stockist. (I recently painted my bathroom vanity with Annie Sloan in just an hour. Love the stuff.) I had a nice chat with the owner when I was in last time about Annie Sloan and the available furniture pieces in the store. I love how unique everything is...but things go fast! I had a cabinet in mind, and it sold the morning I came in. Only an hour late! Shoot. I had to settle for some paint. (Settle as in I would have bought it anyways!) The staff at Aviena is great about putting available clothing and furniture on their Facebook, so you can see what is new.
