Fairy garden accessories are available at The Mouse in Rochester.

You can't plant your garden yet, but a fairy can.

And all the garden accessories a fairy could need, including miniature gazebos, wheelbarrows, watering cans, patio furniture, birdhouses and more, are available at The Mouse , 116 17th Ave. N.W., Rochester.

Fairy gardens can be "grown" inside a pot, a corner of your yard, a wheelbarrow, stump, old suitcase or just about anywhere else indoors or out.

Good jeans

Eva Longoria and Halle Berry have them. Now, so can you.


Thrive , the boutique at the Rochester Athletic Club, 3100 19th St. N.W., will host a Henry & Belle trunk show Wednesday, featuring the jeans that have graced the celebrity style pages and even People magazine's "Best Jeans" list.

The trunk show will be held from 9 a.m. to noon with refreshments provided and again from 4 to 8 p.m. with wine samples and chocolate provided.

Admission is free. You do not need to be a RAC member.

During the trunk show, receive 10 percent off any purchase of Henry & Belle jeans. A portion of every sale of Henry & Belle jeans will also go to the Boys & Girls of Rochester.

Cash Mob

Grab $20 and join the "cash mob" Friday in Stewartville.

Based on the planned spontaneity of a flash mob, cash mobs are groups who come together to shop at a locally-owned business at a designated time.

A local business is selected and its owner is notified of the impending "mob" to ensure that enough staff is on hand, but the location is kept secret from participants to help build excitement.


Friday's mob is sponsored by the Stewartville Chamber of Commerce, which plans to sponsor three cash mobs this year.

To participate, meet at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the parking lot of Stewartville City Hall, 105 First St. From there, everyone will walk to the chosen business, where each person in the mob spends $20.

The end result is a cash infusion for the local economy and a fun shopping event for participants.
