Yelp's Homegrown Holiday CMYE in Minneapolis

Posted by Annie D

Twin Cities yelpers braved aftermath from the epic Minnesota blizzard and put their Yelp Shops Local pledges into action at Yelp's Homegrown Holiday CMYE this week.

A couple dozen gift-givers got in their one-horse open sleighs and jingled over to Moss Envy for a wintry event at their eco-chic shop that features sustainable goods and gifts for home and life.

While indulging in organic hot cocoa spiked with a naughty winter warmer, Lila C and her friend scored jewelry, "recycled eco-friendly fleece lined mittens and a pumpkin candle" and checked out the "flashy underpants section." The raffle left everybody a winner with 20% off discount coupons, and Hether C snagged a $40 gift card!

Carolyn A couldn't contain her excitement about Sun Street Breads: "All the treats were delicious (don't worry: I tried all of them). I especially loved the gougeres and the coconut/ginger/chocolate ganache cookies." Well, Carolyn, you only have to wait a couple of months before baker Solveig Tofte opens up her brand new bakery on 46th and Nicollet. We're sure she'll make you all the cheese straws, almond tarts and cookies you can handle!
