The Top 5

Planning A Kitchen Remodel

Despite the scorching heat we (tried to) embrace this past weekend, fall will grace us with chilly nights and rich colors before we know it. Fall is the perfect time to start a remodel on your kitchen—and this class at Castle Building will provide the low-down. Start now and have your new space ready for the holidays! Tuesday, 6-7:30 p.m. @ 362 Snelling Ave. S., St. Paul, castlebri.com

Shopcicle Market

Hike over to the heart of Lowertown, where Union Depot has a fresh collection of merch from artisan makers, hardcore crafters, and more at Shopcicle Market. This month’s market, titled “New Products/New Craftspeople,” will donate seven percent of all sales to The Arc, a local, Minnesota nonprofit that promotes and protects the human rights of people with disabilities. Drop a dollar on something you can feel good (and not guilty) about. Thursday, 3-8:30 p.m. @ Union Depot, 214 Fourth St. E., Suite 300, St. Paul, shopciclemn.com

Art & Architecture Moving Sale

Art & Architecture, a Minneapolis antique and furniture showroom, needs to downsize. What better way to do it than host a once-in-a-lifetime sale? They’re offering massive discounts on all inventory until enough is gone to squeeze into their new space. Friday-Monday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ 3338 University Ave. S.E., Minneapolis, artandarc.com

LJ Design Institute

Maybe you’re trying to figure out what to do with that extra, unused bedroom or the empty corner of your basement. You want something unique, something special, something one-of-a-kind—something like a library, maybe? Join architects, vendors, and designers from Library Journal Design Institute for the latest trends in library design. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ Minneapolis Central Library, 300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, eventbrite.com
