Angie Seabert owns Minty Keen, a eco-friendly retail shop featuring indie crafts, made in Michigan gifts, vintage items and the precious things that inspire fond memories. You’re sure to find something you recognize from grammy’s house or from your childhood that will make you smile. New arrivals happen almost daily.
Fashion’s Night Out coincides with Minty Keen’s second anniversary, “so we’re working off the circus theme, trying to incorporate some fun vintage prom dresses for a big two-year anniversary party” says Angie Seabert, Minty Keen owner.
Seabert spends her day collecting vintage items, organizing her shop, updating Minty Keen’s social media and setting up window displays. Looking for a vintage movie prop or a fabulous cameo pin? You just might find what you’re looking for at Minty Keen. Connecting with her customers is one of Seabert’s favorite daily activities. “I love helping my costumers find that perfect gift and décor that will match their home,” she says.
What’s more, Minty Keen is hosting 11 ArtPrize entries this year. The store is located on the Ottawa side of the Ledyard Building (125 Ottawa NW Suite 170). Store hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 10 to 6, Thursday and Friday 11-7, and Saturday 10-3 (open everyday during ArtPrize). www.mintykeen.com
