MidModMen+friends, a store that specializes in midcentury vintage and refurbished furniture and home décor, at 2401 W. University Ave., is celebrating two years at its University Avenue store with a MidModMixer on Thursday, Oct. 23, from 6 to 9 p.m. at the store.
The store is vacating the “annex” space next door that it has been using for overflow inventory. The annex is the new home to WORKHORSE COFFEE BAR, which is planning to open sometime in January.
MidModMen will also host two local fashion innovators—Marked Leather and Mill City Fineries—in a pop-up shop at the store in November. Marked Leather specializes in hand-crafted leather goods using hides with irregularities like scratches, brands or scuffs that make each product unique. Mill City creates bow ties and pocket squares using high-quality fabrics, including vintage stock.
St. Paul artist Lisa Rydin Erickson will continue her yearlong collaboration with MidModMen+friends in a December showcase of new artwork, fabric creations and other items based on her art.
