a guide to local shops, restaurants, spas and more
all owned or run by Twin Cities WOMEN

The Urban Girl's Manifesto

I have LOVED reading through this since the minute I purchased it! It has a little bit of everything--all about places here in the Twin Cities. It describes and gives contact information, addresses, and websites of boutiques, services, cafes, and restaurants owned by women in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. It even contained two of my very favorite shops in St. Paul: Picky Girl & Karma. I've also read and learned about boutiques I had never heard of and even started a list of all the places I want to check out!

Here's a description, directly from the CRAVE website:

CRAVE Minneapolis is the most unique and stylish guidebook for Minneapolis living. It is a celebration of women entreprenesses that showcases some of the most creative, interesting, and gutsy proprietors throughout our city.

You need this book because:

  • You love quality goods
  • You expect exceptional service
  • You want to be pampered
  • You appreciate attention to detail
  • You enjoy supporting local, female proprietors
  • You have absolutely no time to waste
  • You long to get out and explore the city

Let us introduce you to a fabulous new designer, to a miracle-worker masseuse, to a confectionery queen, to the amazing women around town who will help satisfy your next craving.


Check out CRAVE's website here, the specific Mpls/St. Paul site here, and the blog here.
You can purchase the Minneapolis/St. Paul book in any of the places listed in the book--check out the website for the list!
(It's only $19.95)

There are several other cities that have CRAVE books, so if you have girlfriends in other places-get them one!!
It would make a FABULOUS gift for anyone!

*It was hard to figure out how to purchase a book for another city to give as a gift, BUT I did! Go to the main CRAVE website and click on "CONTACT" at the top of the screen. This then gives you a page to fill out and a CRAVE location to choose. I explained that I was looking to purchase the Boston book, but couldn't find it online. I received an email within 2 days with a link to a site that sold the book, and even at a "special price!" It never hurts to ask, and I can't wait to send this to my sister in Boston!!
