Yep, I picked up a suit from Saks too for over 80% off. I only got the pants hemmed, though. I usually go to Sew What in the TCF Building skyway. I've never found reasonable pricing on suit jacket alterations. I once picked up a clearance suit at Marshalls and brought it to a tailor for alterations. after I was quoted twice the price I paid for the suit I just decided to return it.

So rather than alter, I just try to find jackets that fit really well. i'm sure some will say you should always get alterations, though.

Where can a city slicker get some firewood for a backyard firepit? It seems like something I could run up to Welna Ace Hardware and pick up, but maybe not or maybe there's a better place?

With the quarantine on firewood transport in/out of the metro due to EAB, most hardware stores and gas stations have bundles. At least those I frequent do (Diamond Lake Ace and the SA at Cedar and the creek, to name two).
The problem with being an introvert online is that no one knows you're just hanging out and listening.

There are also services that will deliver larger quantities at a better price than buying by the bundle. Depending on how much you think you'll use.

Can anyone recommend some places to pick up some cool furniture? Maybe some local/second had shops with quality stuff? Been scoping out the chains - CB2, West Elm, Home Goods, Market but open to other suggestions? Looking for a mix of contemporary/vintage pieces. Thanks!

On the corner of Selby and fairview near the blue door there are two antique malls. The one on the southern side of the street has amazing vintage shops within

If you're willing to go across the river Ambiente is right near the Red Stag.

Check the City Pages and look for the phrase 'Grand Opening'.

If you're in the area checking out Forage Modern Workshop, you might as well check out these 2 spots nearby:

There's a new vintage shop at 3618 East Lake, Assez Bon.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Assez-Bo ... 7790775601
It's next door to Miller Upholstering. I've been in there a couple of times and she has some cool stuff.

Prairie Woodworking is across the street and one block west, 3537 East Lake.
http://www.prairie-woodworking.com/pww/
He has some beautiful pieces, definitely local and definitely quality stuff.

Minnehaha Ave., south of Lake, is becoming the second hand hot spot of the city. There are places up and down that stretch too.

Not in Longfellow but Danish Teak Classics is also worth checking out. Room and Board Outlet is another good option to satisfy your contemporary desires.

I think Assez Bon is now Beckon, either way it's cool and right door to Miller Upholstery.
