 Our building is the first brick building on the river side when you get into Stillwater from the South.   The parking lot preceeding our building is FREE parking from November – May (even though it says pay park)  and if you can find a spot, the Brick Alley parking lot on Nelson Street behind our building is FREE all year long for our customers!

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

What a difference a few hours makes.  The signs are so incredible.  The pictures don’t really do them justice. They are bright and colorful and perfect.  Hope you can come see for yourself soon.  We are hoping for a grand opening the weekend of October 10th!  More details to follow soon!

Our Amazing Location

We are located at 423 South Main Street in Stillwater, MN in a building called the Brick Alley.  The building is the first building you see when you pull into Stillwater from Hwy 36.  The photo here is a computer generated illustration of what our signage will look like.  The real signs are getting installed on Sunday.

We are shooting for a grand opening the weekend of October 10th.  But if our door is open, come on in and check us out!

Our amazing graphic designer crafted this cool image.  Check out Katrina Haas work at www.themixcreative.com.
