The second law of thermodynamics and the first law of Nelly lyrics hold that ambient heat and clothing have an inverse relationship. Disturb the natural order with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of clothing and home accents at FinnStyle on Glenwood Avenue in downtown Minneapolis.
FinnStyle spotlights creative and modern designs with myriad accessories and home adornments from talented Finnish designers. One of few local repositories for the Finnish clothing line Marimekko, FinnStyle attempts to outfit its customers in durable, stylish design. Swaddle infants in playful prints with kids' bodysuits ($49–$55) and socks ($9–$16), or pack a jacket pocket with splashes of petals after picking up a square scarf ($26). Conceal makeup with cosmetic bags ($32–$75) or tote candy, coins, and fake birth certificates with the aid of stylish coin purses ($16–$29).
Lest homes grow rebelliously envious of their decked-out inhabitants, FinnStyle mollifies bristling domicile egos with streamlined furnishings and tableware. Iittala glassware such as sleek glasses ($35+) and a ribbed salad bowl ($34+) cradle aliments while classing up hands and tables alike. A selection of Marimekko fabrics satisfies DIY home-sprucers ($29.25+), while tall and petite candleholders allow customers to illuminate homes with flickering candlelight instead of flaming oil drums ($12.60+).
