The holiday season is in full swing starting with Thanksgiving and Black Friday kicking off the season of shopping! Rosedale Center is the best place to find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. If you’re anything like us, you’ll want to start your shopping day off with a large coffee. So grab a quick cup at Caribou before hitting the shops!
For the person on your list who has that classic, classy style, you’ll want to head straight to Von Maur, Rosedale’s newest anchor store. With only 36 locations in 15 states, you may not be familiar with Von Maur, but after your first visit, you’ll want to keep coming back! At Von Maur you can shop for name-brand clothing, accessories, beauty, and home decor all while enjoying music from a live pianist! They are known for having excellent customer service, so if you need help, be sure to ask. From festive holiday decor to classic clothing and accessories to fun and unique gifts, this is a great first stop!
Next, for the crafty and Midwest-loving ones on your list, you’ll want to head to Rose & Loon and Six for Good. Rose & Loon is curated with goods only from Midwest makers, many of them Minnesotan. Part of the store is dedicated to class and working space for the makers, so check out their calendar of events to see when you could have the chance to meet a maker or be a maker yourself! Knitwear, candles, candies, decor, paintings, and more adorn every corner. Learn more about Rose & Loon, and be sure to visit more than once, as new products and makers are continuously being added. Six for Good is a collective of six friends and makers who came toegether to sell their goods and do good for their communities. From tasty cookies to gorgeous accessories to fun home decor, Six for Good has it all.
By now, you might need a shopping break. Admire Rosedale’s Winter Castle, and download the free Rosedale Center Winter Castle app to see it come to life by positioning your device in the direction of marked holiday objects. The app allows you to take photos with a variety of holiday characters, add special effects, and share with your friends and family. If you brought kids with you, you can take them to meet Santa! A sensory-friendly Santa experience will be available December 8 from 6:30-8 PM. You can also take your pet to visit Santa 5-8 PM Wednesdays or 9-11 AM Sundays through December 18.
For lunch, you might want to head over to Potluck Food Hall. This new dining experience offers options for everyone.

Enjoy pizza and ice cream from Grand Ole Creamery, sweet or savory waffles from Nordic Waffles, a steaming bowl of noodles from OBachan, lobster rolls from Smack Shack, a delectable burger from burger Dive, filled biscuits from Betty & Earls, or build-your-own hummus from Chickpea. We’re getting hungry just thinking about it!
After you’ve filled up at Potluck, Altar’d State is the perfect store to visit for any trendy women on your list. This boutique is filled with clothing and accessories in the latest styles as well as gorgeous home decor.
