I used to live in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  I can't tell you how much I miss Axman.  They had everything.  I scored on chalk and charcoal there.  Enjoy it while you are there!

The Minnesota Center for Book Arts is great. It's here:
1011 Washington Ave. South, Suite 100, Minneapolis, MN 55415, which is right on Washington, kinda near Sawatdee and the Depot.
I recommend it, even just to look around!

Borealis Yarns in Saint Paul is great, I went there today for the first time.  The staff was very friendly and they had an impressive selection of yarn.  I was especially impressed with how much cotton and other vegan friendly yarns they had.  Plus they have a punch card program and that's always good!

I like Treadle Yard Goods at 1338 Grand Ave in St. Paul.  They have a lot of fun stuff like the retro reprint stuff as well as really nice silks and a super cute button selection. 
There is also a knitting store in Chanhassen, I am not sure the address but it is south of highway 5 near the new Lakewinds co-op.  It is called Knit Wits and it seemed like they had a lot of nice yarns.

Oh OH OH!  Even though I no longer live there.  I can say I've been to a REALLY awesome craft store in downtown called "Crafty planet"

I got the BEST retro prints their for headwraps and some chocolate brown sweatshirt material for a pair of palazzo style sweatpants.

I still have not MADE them yet...but in theory it can be done now.

I just discovered a fantastic nursery in St. Paul. I love plants as much as I love crafts, and I think gardening is pretty crafty! I put together some containers for my back stoop this week, hurray for flowers! It's Linder's in St. Paul, 270 Larpenteur. It's great! I have been there 3 times in 2 days. Help!  Shocked
