Clarabel moved just three doors down from its original spot near 50th & Xerxes, but owner Clara Domisch said it’s a “sea change,” now in a much larger space.
Located in the former Xylos storefront at 3020 W. 50th St., Domisch is adapting to new 12-foot ceiling heights — the shop’s giant chandelier no longer hangs down to her waist.
“I had to get over my fear of heights,” she said.
The store is filled with vintage Italian gold mirrors, a 19th century bench from a carousel, and a violin string display from the former Dahl Violin Shop in Downtown Minneapolis.
Domisch said she keeps very busy scouting new purchases and fielding emails from antique sellers.
“It’s always a nice way to find things and get a little history behind it,” she said.
Clarabel is open Thursday thru Sunday from 12-5 p.m.
