The new Twin Cities Crate & Barrel store opened last Thursday and we visited for the first time on Saturday. It was awesome…and extremely busy!


I must admit I have a special interest in addition to loving the store…our son is the designer for the new furniture store and we’re mighty proud of him. Judging by the turnout for opening days, it appears there are plenty other Crate & Barrel lovers in the Twin Cities as well. Hats off to a great new store and a job well done!
