HONEYSHINE MOVING TO LINDEN HILLS
NEIGHBORHOOD OF MINNEAPOLIS.
Honeyshine offers objects and design for the home
as well as gifts for the people in them.
January 17, 2013. Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Successful start up retail concept, Honeyshine, is relocating from Bryn Mawr to Linden Hills in May, 2013. Honeyshine, named Best New Gift Shop 2012 by Minnesota Monthly Magazine, was also featured as a top shop by both Minneapolis St-Paul Magazine and Apartment Therapy in 2012. It will continue to offer both retail and design/styling for the home at the new location. Honeyshine is also expanding its product development and will introduce additional Honeyshine designed lines in 2013-2014.
In a world of generic big-box stores, Honeyshine opened its doors in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis in 2011. After a successful founding year in Bryn Mawr, owners Adam Braun and Daisy Mitchell will relocate Honeyshine to a space in Linden Hills in May 2013.
Honeyshine will open in Linden Hills on May 8, 2013 at 2720 West 43rd Street, Minneapolis, 55410. “Our new space is next to the Wild Rumpus Bookstore and has been occupied by a yarn shop for over 20 years. It’s a proven retail space next to multiple restaurants and shops. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to locate next to Wild Rumpus…it’s such an amazing bookstore – creative, out of the box and successful,” said Mitchell. The new Honeyshine location offers retail square footage with additional inventory and studio space. “We love the Bryn Mawr neighborhood and could not think of a better place to start a business. We’ve been overwhelmed by community support and in many ways, Honeyshine will always be inspired by Bryn Mawr,” said Braun. “When we originally opened Honeyshine, we knew we wanted to be part of a neighborhood, and that hasn’t changed. As we grow our business, we look forward to joining the vibrant Linden Hills community,” said Braun, who grew up in Linden Hills.
“When we first developed the concept of Honeyshine, our goal was to offer a new Twin Cities shopping experience that celebrates imagination, creativity and curiosity. Our customers have really responded well to our concept and style,” said Mitchell. “We like finding and using different materials, techniques and non-traditional approaches…the Honeyshine aesthetic is an out-of-the-box mix of different, beautiful, scrappy and elegant. It’s weird—in a great way.”
A celebration of unique and beautiful objects, Honeyshine’s art-driven retail concept embraces the luxury of being different. “We are inspired by curating a collection of interesting things from smaller, emerging designers,” said co-owner Adam Braun. “We find old and new things we love and combine them — if our collection feels boring, predictable or redundant, we start over,” added Braun’s partner, Daisy Mitchell. The result is a combination of modern, vintage, contemporary and quirky items pulled together with a fresh, but lived-in vibe.
Honeyshine offers a mix of items that range from decorative accessories, tabletop-entertaining items, jewelry, furniture, art, vintage finds, as well as gifts for children, men and women.
Honeyshine will continue to offer its unique approach to design and styling services from the Linden Hills location. Honeyshine launched its design and styling services in January 2012 and has completed 3 major home design projects and helped 15+ clients with re-imagining spaces in their homes and offices. “Our a la carte design services have been very popular” says Mitchell. “Our clients have really responded to our flexibility, budget conscious-DIY approach to designing… Some people know exactly how they want their home to look and need just a little help pulling it together. Others want inspiration, vision and execution of design. Budgets and styles vary, but one thing that our clients have in common is that they want to feel connected to their home design…not like they are living in a design show room. We work together with our clients as a team to make that happen – each project is as different as our clients.”
Mitchell and Braun look forward to continuing to deliver on their commitment to Minneapolis to build and maintain a fresh aesthetic that is current and relevant. Through retail, design and Honeyshine designed products, Honeyshine brings something different, individual and authentic to the Twin Cities.
In Bryn Mawr, Honeyshine is open six days a week, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. Honeyshine will offer extended hours in the new Linden Hills location. Hours will be available at www.honeyshine.net starting in April 2013
