Apparently, you should be almost done with your holiday shopping? Hop to it with this weekend's events.
Marimekko clothing is just as merry as cas be. See the latest collection of fall and winter fashions at FinnStyle
(5 to 7 p.m. tonight, 160 Glenwood Av, Mpls, 612-333-2127). Bold patterns and classic design? We just had an idea: Marimekko for Target! (We totally just made that up, but maybe we are psychic or should be paid a commission.)
Luck be a Maiden
Probably the most fun you will have shopping this year: Maiden Minnesota
(5 to 10 p.m. tonight, at the Graves Hotel, 601 1st Av. N., Mpls, 612-677-1100, $30 tickets). Shop 35 plus
local, women-owned companies. Five dollars from each ticket will benefit Project SUCCESS. So do it for the skivvies
, do it for the malted milk balls
or do it for the kids
With such a busy weekend, you deserve an early holiday gift. Find a very necessary new cocktail ring at Walker Art Center's Jewelry Artist Mart
(11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, 1750 Hennepin Av S, Mpls., 612-375-7600), featuring mostly locals.
