Mid-Century Vibe and MidModMen Extend Stay

Previously we, here at Mid-Century Vibe, told you about our partnership with the fine fellows at MidModMen. We joined forces with them in order to open a bricks and mortar retail space in St. Paul, MN, with a limited lease. Originally, we had signed a four month lease just to see how things would go; if they went well we’d see what we’d do next and, if they didn’t go so well, we’d pack it in, call it a day, and be glad for all the fun we had.

As it turns out, it went well enough that we have decided to sign a one year lease and commit to staying in our new neighborhood for as long as we are welcome. We love the space, the neighborhood, the restaurants, the other mid century and vintage shops, and, well, the overall vibe of the place.

The store is called MidModMen+friends and we are the “+friends” part of the equation. We are regularly open Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 – 5:00 with occasional Friday hours. The store is located at 2401 University Avenue, St. Paul, MN.

Here’s a link to a press release officially announcing our stay.

Mid-Century Vibe is the business venture of Erik & Mary Warner, who are dealing in vintage objects of desire in central Minnesota. When Erik and Mary launched their antiques venture in August 2011, they  found they were continually drawn to items from the 1940s through the 1960s (with a little slop-over in either direction – design eras are not neatly attached to decades).
