Browsers will enjoy the warm, welcoming and unhurried atmosphere along with coffee and treats.


For those with children, the Clay Studio is holding a family class on Saturday - help your children cut out and decorate stars that can become gifts, ornaments or pieces for wind chimes. Stars for the Holidays is for children ages ten and up, with an adult...or for an adult interested in a charming, successful clay project. See our class listing.

On Sunday, there are free kids activities from 12- 3 p.m.; Shop the store without distraction! Since the store offers a room full of unique, high quality children’s gifts, the activities are in a separate room allowing parents to make holiday purchases to surprise and delight their children.

My love of stone and jewelry seem just as natural a confluence as the components themselves. I continually strive to assimilate that beauty and harmony that nature already provides us.

Lakestone Jewelry by Jenny Nunnelee


Jewelry made with rocks from Lake Superior and sterling silver.

I am a Minneapolis based metalsmith who has been making jewelry professionally since 1999. I work primarily with sterling silver and rocks from the Great Lakes in my designs.

I love to take these basic natural elements and transform them into something even more beautiful. I enjoy the ritual of looking for the rocks. Sometimes I have a project in mind that I'm looking for specific rocks for and other times I design based on the rocks I find. I explore the interaction between nature and adornment in my work
