When I purchased Flutter almost 4 years ago, I knew that a move was necessary. I just wasn't planning on moving twice. The demand for appointments was quickly outgrowing the Lake/Lyndale location. We found a wonderful hidden gem, The Carriage House at the Semple Mansion. It was a lofty feel with wood floors and brick walls. It was the perfect space for us to grow as a brand and grow our bridal collections.
We only signed a 3 year lease, so when we had a year left on our lease, we had to decide to stay or look around. It started out looking for fun.
Then, we found it. This untapped market in the coveted Northeast neighborhood. Not only in NE, but on St. Anthony Main across from the river. The floor to ceiling windows and breathtaking views had us swooning.
We had the chance to design every aspect of the store. We kept our customers and gowns in mind when making choices on decor, fitting rooms, and layout. We had a unique space to work with, so we really wanted to have our focus on the dresses and the natural light.

Here is how it began.......
Jake and Wilder hanging dress racks
Hand painted walls by Manager, Laura
New carpet, dressing rooms, and office
So many balloons for our coming soon window display
It only took about 2 days to get everything into place, but we still have a few minor things to do.
We still have a few last minute finishing touches, but we are up and ready for appointments. We hope our brides feel comfortable, relaxed, and happy while shopping for their perfect gown. Professional photos coming soon! We can't wait for you to see it!
