Having been in a few times now, I know Forage offers a few unique aspects. It's a furniture store, it's an arts n crafts store, it's a MN-made showcase, it's a sustainable materials store, and it's a gift shop.
I always find things to look at closely and often wish to purchase. These have to be the best doormats ever (pic). They have a ton more fun, creative, soft, interesting, smell-nice items too. You'd be surprised.
Plus, it shares its space with Parka, a great place for Dogwood coffee, a quick bite, or a full-on upscale dinner. As them about their "effervescent white chocolate", if you dare.
