There could be no more appropriate motto for Honeyshine in Bryn Mawr than it's own: "Curiosity required." This shop looks like it walked straight out of a design magazine, featuring all sorts of creative curiosities for the home and unique gifts for all ages. Making good on their Yelp Shops Local pledges, Minneapolis and St. Paul yelpers boogied over to Honeyshine for Yelp's Totally Bazaar on Wednesday!
Owners Daisy and Adam invited yelpers to schmooze over local cheeses, sweet treats and hot spiked apple cider (talk about a tasty winter warmer), all while shopping at a discount on some of the quirkiest merchandise in the Land o' Lakes!
To help everybody get to know the store and each other, we played a fun scavenger hunt version of YELP-O that included questions like "How many Barbie heads are in the store?" and "What materials are the Jetsam wallets made from?" and "What inspired the owners to open Honeyshine?"
Did we mention there was a toasty fire going in front of the shop? Yep, this shindig was all kindsa cozy—even outside! At the event, Breanne K let us know that she's striving to do 100% of her holiday shopping at local businesses (yay!) and Honeyshine's "top-notch gifts" certainly helped her keep that Yelp Shops Local pledge. Carolyn A says, "This event was a blast and a half. It's safe to say that I'll add Honeyshine to my list of must-shop boutiques in the Twin Cities!"
A hearty thanks goes out to Adam, Daisy and Bruce for welcoming us so warmly to their shop and to all who attended this lovely winter evening of yelpiness. Make sure to check out the five-star reviews of the event on Yelp (or write your own if you were there) and keep on supporting our amazing Minneapolis-St. Paul business community!
