Sophie Joe's Emporium
First, Happy Birthday to all the Leap Year babies!
An artist with the initials "ES" painted this mural outside the entrance to Sophie Joe's Emporium on W-7th Street in Saint Paul in 2011. Obviously it needs a touch up here and there, but it's a terrific draw into the establishment, which is a large space with dozens of small booths that the individual vendors rent to sell their "stuff" on consignment. Below you can see a detail of the large mural as well as one of the booths. I could spend a whole day in this space, going from one consignment space to another.
