Greater Goods is a cute stationary & gift shop located in the Eat Street neighborhood along Nicollet Avenue. Many new local restaurants and shops are popping up here making it a must-see area for both locals and travelers. Owners Lauren and Joel Gryniewski first started with their two stationary brands, the tongue-in-cheek Old Tom Foolery and the picturesque Modern Lore. Now with their new storefront at Greater Goods, which officially opened late November 2013, they feature around 20 artists’ handmade goods at any given month. | 2515 Nicollet Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55404
Not only are their goods great, Greater Goods strives to give back to its community as an even greater good. As seen in the mission statement painted inside the shop, they are dedicated to giving back a portion of their proceeds each year to various organizations in an effort to support the local community. This year they are supporting the youth artist program at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design.
A special thanks to Lauren Gryniewski for letting us feature Greater Goods.
