After six years in business EuroNest is closing its doors. The middle to upper-end furniture and accessories retailer was a favorite of many local interior designers for its blend of traditional styles, European antiques and reproductions. Everything from an antique spice rack ($975) to artisanal soap ($10) is discounted between 40 and 80 percent. Most items are discounted 40 or 50 percent.
The store has a handful of occasional chairs, sofas, dining room sets, patio furniture, and end tables, but its long suit is accessories. It's a great time to stock up on hostess gifts or small pieces for your home, including accent pillows, clocks, pottery, statuary, candles, coasters, soaps and velvet pumpkins (pictured, $12 to $60 after the discount).
The GOB sale starts Thursday, Aug. 2 with the store expected to close Saturday, Aug. 11. The shop is at 5700 W. 36th St., St. Louis Park, 952-929-2927. Hours during the sale are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
Owner Lori Anderson plans to continue her interior design business after the store has closed.
