It's getting to be that time of year again! Mark your calendars for Dot & Minnie's spring Sympli Trunk Show. Hopefully you can join us Thursday evening (February 22nd), but if not, stop by to see the new styles and colors in person anytime Thursday through Saturday! We'll send more details and start asking for RSVP's very soon
- watch your in/mail box!
Get your Christmas shopping done in Perham this year! So many stores to visit...what a fun place to live (or visit)! Both Dot & Minnie's and Level iii will be open pre-Christmas Thursday evenings until 7 PM.
Spring 2017 brings Coolibar to Dot & Minnie's! So, whether you want to avoid skin cancer or premature aging, are allergic to the sun, or simply adore Coolibar's cute styles(!), this could be the clothing line for you this season.
Coolibar has been designing sun protective fabrics for 14 years. The fabrics are tested, re-tested, and then tested again! Their sun protective fabrics block 98% of UVA and UVB rays and are rated UPF50+ (which, by the way, is the highest possible rating!). Since a regular t-shirt blocks fewer than 10% of the same rays, Coolibar has done their homework. AND, their company is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, so they are close to home.
These are some of the fun styles we have in the store (both brick & mortar and on-line) right now:

Did you know... Dot & Minnie's carries Atenti bags - and they are all made in the USA?!?
Many of us strive to be unlike anyone else. And for many of us, that extends even to our handbags. Dot & Minnie's has been carrying bags by Atenti for almost a year now. As soon as I saw their unique "carpetbag" look, I knew they'd fit right in at the store. Since opening Dot & MInnie's five years ago, I haven't had much of an opportunity to carry a purse - I don't go many places! But even I have two of these by Atenti. My expensive leather bags that I used during my corporate life (most of them by Coach...have always had a weakness for bags...) are now all in totes at home. I've found I'd much rather use something that I won't see on anyone else's arm - even if I'm just walking between home and downtown Perham!
Here is a little more about Atenti that I borrowed from their website:
Atenti was created by two women who grew up in the heart of the vibrant, fashionable city of Buenos Aires. They shared the same cultural background and passion for materials, textures, trims and colors, which continue to evoke and inspire them.
Family owned Atenti is based in Los Angeles and manufactures its bags and accessories in the U.S.A. The Atenti line features innovative fabrics and embellishments from all over the world; from textile mills in the United States. Italy Spain and Argentina to laces and buttons from France and Great Britain. Atenti bags are known for exciting blends of color, texture and pattern.
Shop all in-stock Atenti bags at dotandminnies.com
