Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane-wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today’s Groupon to Jeromeo, with two locations on Nicollet Mall. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of jewelry, art, antiques, and perfumes.
- For $50, you get $125 worth of jewelry, art, antiques, and perfumes.
- For $100, you get $250 worth of jewelry, art, antiques, and perfumes.
Jeromeo pleases noses with custom-made perfumes, accents homes with art and fine Asian antiques, and outfits bodies with clothing, handbags, and handcrafted jewelry. Customers can stroll across the hardwood floors of the spacious store and examine elegant displays of delicate handmade earrings ($32–$65), hand-painted scrolls ($49), and porcelain dish-and-chopstick sets ($49), or search for doppelgängers in reflections on the mirrored walls. Flocks of metal flying pigs, goats, and other animals constructed entirely from recycled scrap ($45–$295) flaunt colorful personalities and robotic-sounding rounds of “Old MacDonald.” Shoppers can sample the wake-up massage and body oil, which Jeromeo’s perfumers handcraft in the store ($19), or prolong floral life in a set of seven vases ($98). This Groupon can also be used toward more ancient artwork, such as a 250-year-old carving on a stand ($365) or a 300-year-old rectangular carving ($595).
