6 Small businesses in the #TwinCities that we love

by Galit on April 6, 2017

We can hardly believe it, but our Twin Cities Listen to Your Mother show is exactly one month away from today!

We’re busily ironing out the details behind the scenes and we’re spending just as much time reveling in just how breath taking this year’s show is turning out to be. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, don’t wait! Get your tickets right here.

Today, we’re excited to celebrate our one month pre-show date by introducing you to the 6 amazing small businesses who are our local sponsors in the Twin Cities. We only invite businesses to work with us who we already respect and adore, so we mean it when we say:

Here are 6 Twin Cities businesses we love to patron and know that you will, too!

Willy, Melanie & John

Melanie and John Willy, Edina Realty

MELANIE AND JOHN understand there is a difference between PROVIDING A SERVICE and DELIVERING SERVICE. In the real estate industry, there are HUGE differences in the quality of professional service between agents and brokers. We simply offer more marketing and exposure of your home, a constant stream of current market information and communication, leading edge technologies, a more complete buyer representation plan = an overall SUPERIOR buying or selling experience for our clients. Contact the Willys today. 

P.S. The Willys sold my (Galit’s) home in 11 days! 11!

Keep In Touch Massage Therapy of Eagan 

KELLY AND JASON learned how to run a small massage business, then became interested in running a larger practice and knew about Keep In Touch. They acquired Keep In Touch of Eagan in April 2008, and the rest is history. They are devoted to bringing the many benefits of therapeutic and relaxation massage to everyone, and say, “We love what we do, and it shows!” Contact Kelly and Jason to book your massage today.

Red Balloon Bookshop

Red Balloon Bookshop

RED BALLOON BOOKSHOP has been connecting children, teens, and adults in the Twin Cities area with great books and great authors for 30 years. Carol Erdahl and Michele Cromer-Poire opened Red Balloon Bookshop in 1984, just four doors to the east of our current location. When they were looking for a name, someone suggested “Red Balloon,” and the imaginative story with the flying balloon had just the right appeal. By 1989, the business had expanded and needed a new space, so Carol & Michele created a new building and moved the bookshop to its current location. Thanks to a series of very fortunate events, Holly Weinkauf became the new owner of Red Balloon in August  2011 when Carol and Michele retired. Red Balloon continues to inspire children and adults with a great selection of books, toys, and gifts, through author and illustrator events, and by offering a fun and exciting place to connect with other readers and book-lovers. Because of their love of reading and fun, Red Balloon Bookshop is dedicated to serving our community with books, gifts and events that inspire, inform and entertain, helping children of all ages  – and adults! – live imaginative and rich lives. Contact Red Balloon Bookshop today.

P.S. Red Balloon is not only the perfect place to find a gift for the reader in your life (one more #hinthint), but their story times and author events are truly not to be missed. Make sure to check them out!

Twin Spirits Distillery

TWIN SPIRITS DISTILLERY is the passion project of Michelle Winchester, whose curiosity for flavor and spirit of adventure found a home in the distilling community of the Twin Cities.  Michelle is the first one-woman owned distillery in Minnesota and she is excited to make NE Minneapolis her distilling oasis. Michelle started this project in 2014 and has spent two years getting the distillery up and running. From purchasing and renovating a 1920’s property in NE Minneapolis that will serve as the distillery and cocktail room, with an additional building that will house a warehouse and possible event space. Michelle loves the barn look of the building and plans on extensive green spaces to continue the look of a farm. Twin Spirits is meant to invoke the idea of the many dualities in life. We look forward to sharing Twin Spirits with you in the future. Contact Michelle today.
