Located at The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes, Fox Run, which opened in the summer, features 1,400 square feet of modern, curated gifts and décor from more than 25 Minnesota makers who specialize in a wide variety of trades including jewelry, candle making, leatherwork, knitted and sewn goods, pottery, hand-drawn illustrations, greeting cards, upcycled crafts, home décor, hand-blown glasswork, felted goods, apparel and more.
This holiday season, Fox Run is focusing on a Handmade Christmas. “Buying gifts at big stores and spending lots of money has become the hallmark of a Christmas well-enjoyed. But what about the origins of this special holiday?” says Tia Scott, Fox Run creator and owner. “We like to think back to a time when people gave things that were made by hand and enjoyed beyond just the season.”
Fox Run will also offer cookie decorating classes and how-to help for shoppers who want to make their own one-of-a-kind gifts. Not creative? Fox Run is filled with unique gifts including cards and signs (“Dear Santa: I can explain”). Other hot items include cozy upcycled flannels and an all-natural skincare line designed to tackle Minnesotans’ dry skin and wind-chapped faces.
