There is a “Beautiful Something” in Lanesboro


Mon, Aug 24th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Features

There is a unique new business in Lanesboro, Minn. called Beautiful Something, which is exactly what you will find while shopping there.

Brad Erwin and his daughter Shanalee Knight had been searching for a building to open their business and they found exactly what they wanted while looking in Lanesboro. They took possession of the building at 106 Coffee Street on April 1, 2015.

Erwin has been interested in antiques for over 35 years and wanted to have a shop to display and sell his inventory of glassware, furniture, pottery, and much more.

Knight “got to where she didn’t like going to big cities to buy her clothes anymore and got into buying a lot of her clothes online”, states Erwin of his daughter. So she decided to go into business with her dad selling clothing, accessories, and more along with his antiques.

Six weeks were spent fixing up the inside of the business as they remodeled. Erwin says they really fixed up the inside saying “the only thing we didn’t do was the ceiling - it’s the original tin ceiling” which added to the charm of the space when the business opened in the middle of May.

A second daughter, Jessica, and her husband, Casey Meyer, helped with remodeling and “work behind the scenes” doing computer work, buying, etc. states Erwin, and his wife adds her input on the different types of clothes to stock also.

Trying to incorporate antiques with new merchandise can be very tricky, but the owners of Beautiful Something hit the nail on the head.

Erwin describes their decorative style as “antiquely” and “rustic” with barn wood used throughout the building in different places, including trim work thanks to Erwin’s son-in-law who tore down an aged barn, and metal from an old chicken coop hangs behind the checkout counter.

Casey Meyer also used a barn board to make a jewelry board that holds many pretty pieces, including necklaces and bracelets. It is this type of innovative thinking that makes the store so special.

Erwin says people really like the “feel” of the space and he has received many positive comments from customers. He states “they just love it” and it has not only been customers giving rave reviews, as their realtor and other business owners in town have said how amazing it looks in the store.

The town of Lanesboro and the surrounding area have been very .....
