Market Day ~ Something Local

Today I stopped in at Market Day, a small store specializing in locally made products. It’s located at 12 N. 3rd. Ave. W. Proprietor Lanae Rhoads holds up a homemade eyeshadow palette. She leads classes in how to make your own cosmetics. The next class is April 20 for creating eyeshadow. Classes on all types of subjects are run throughout the month.

Lanae Rhoads says, “You can try your hand at creating an eyeshadow base that you then add color to or you can use the eyeshadow base I have created and spend the time creating the perfect colors for you. It depends how adventurous you are feeling. I will lead you through the whole process in a fun and relaxed environment. This is a project that pairs well with a friend and a glass of wine. ”

Classes range from jewelry making to painting to brewing kombucha

See Market Day’s schedule of classes here.

Other local products scheduled this summer are  CSAs for vegetable and farmed good, flowers and herbal and essential olds. (I posted about the farmers the other day.

    I’m glad I found your blog as I’m old and getting nostalgic. I lived in Duluth in the early 40s…up to the middle of 6th grade when we moved to Los Angeles. One of my best friends (and best man at my wedding) still lives in Duluth. My last visit was in the late 80s on a trip up the North Shore. I have lots of fun and interesting memories of the city. I would like Market Day as I am fond of small, local shops and my wife would find the homemade cosmetics of interest. Best wishes to Ms. Rhoads. If it gets too cold up there, you could check out my blog focusing on Ocala and central Florida where the weather is quite livable most of the year. 🙂

    My father was the pastor of First Covenant Church on 23rd Avenue (I think that’s the right street) in the early 40s.

      Lowell, you have a beautiful blog! previously my photographs had been mostly landscapes, but just recently I started including people.

      We still have snow on the ground, but this morning. as I let the dog out, I heard some new songs. We must have new birds in town. You must be referring to a church in “West End,” or what is now called Lincoln Park. After I go to church myself, I will see if I can find and churches on my website in that area.
