Patina is a local chain, and the first store in South Minneapolis was opened by Christine Ward and Rick Haase, a husband and wife team, in 1993. They had backgrounds in art and background, and they both had retail experience as well. They wanted to offer items of varying artistic backgrounds that were of the highest quality. From that first store, they expanded all over the Twin Cities, and now they are a favorite place to go if you need that unique gift for a special someone. The Golden Valley store is huge and packed full of interesting items. They have jewelry, clothing, books, candles, and much more. Something is sure to pique your interest every time you visit.
