Feature Boutique: LGS: Luxury Garage Sale - Minneapolis
I was on my way to check out a store that I'd heard about and I wanted to familiarize myself with. But, parking was challenging and so, I had to walk a bit. I never got to the store. On my way, I stopped and paused to look into the store window of

When entering, you will see the spacious contemporary design of the store. It's welcoming and relaxed, allowing one to see the craftmanship and quality of the merchandise.

And this color blocked Gucci bomber jacket ($3,195) was unforgettable.
Finding LGS was exciting to me because, this is a new venue to remember when looking for that statement piece my clients may be needing
