With a mix of old, new, global, local and where-the-heck-did-she-find-that, this Bryn Mawr boutique earns that dubious local compliment: It doesn't feel like it's in Minneapolis…

Click through for rustic serving pieces, a spool shelf, and some fair trade goods that only look vintage.

Nola has feeling: Textures, colors and inspirations abound on a single tabletop. With a subtle emphasis on green, sustainable and fair trade (without showing it), it even has sumptuous bedding of Bamboo. It's our go-to for affordable, thoughtful-looking finds and well-made goods that only look like you picked them up across the world or inherited them from a canny granny. With a good eye and a better spirit, owner Kelly ensures you never shop the same store twice. Even if you go Saturday and Sunday.

These aviary prints hail from 19th Century Norway.
Affordable serving pieces mix texture with elegance.
A recent acquisition of glorious vintage camp blankets extends to pillows and a rare robe.
Owner Kelly Dorsey works with a family in Africa to find fair trade goods. She also sources Asian pieces and is one of the few Oly Studio furniture distributors in town.
Subtle patterns, like these fish and crocodiles, go global without getting too hippie.
The exclusive distributors of these rugs in Mpls, she also does affordable custom sisal sizes.
Besides larger pieces, Nola has plenty of small accessories and pops of color.
The kind of piece (check the spool spindles) you wish you could steal from grandpa's workshop.
