Store Opening: Find Furnish

Nestled in the first floor of the white factory building at the Casket Arts Building is a new store called, Find Furnish. Owned by Marie Zellar and Brian Wilcox, Find Furnish specializes in found Mid-Century Modern furnishing and accessories. Marie spends hours looking through garage sales in the Midwest region and brings her treasures back to Minneapolis to restore to their original glory.

Brian and Marie both learned restoration when they were young. After working the political and environmental scene for a number of years, they both decided to partner and return to their restoration roots and open Find Furnish. Whether it is a Pomegranate colored sofa, a lime green 8-track table, or some funky lamps, Marie and Brian keep the selection fresh. In addition to stopping by their new showroom, one may also purchase items off of their Etsy site. 

Please join Marie and Brian this weekend for their Grand Opening of Find Furnish at 1720 Madison Street NE, #10, Minneapolis Minnesota, 55413.

Saturday, October 15 from 12 noon to 8pm

Sunday, October 16th from 12 noon to 5pm.
