Happy New Year!

During the cold weeks, remember to wear your sweatshirts and woollies, as it can be a bit chilly in the space. That said, we hope you’ll help us warm it up a bit with your creative energy!

When you drop by the ToolBox, think about bringing:
- a lonely old (non-smelly) sock, any size, for making puppets
- a recycled cup/container of ice - to add to our MNice Sculpture Garden

Come discover a few items to make for giving to your friends and family.

Stay toasty and share the warmth!

November Hours

It has been a great first few weeks with you all. We've really enjoyed meeting our neighbors and visitors from all over, and have loved seeing what fun you have all come up with!

We're going to start our November hours this week (even though we have two precious days of October left). Friday and Saturday mornings we'll most likely be around from 10 to noon, as well, but aren't making it official....

Monday - Thursday
10am - Noon
2pm - 5pm

Fridays / Weekends / No-School Days / Holidays
You'll see mix of the "Gone Fishin'" and "Open" signs....
stay tuned or just take your chances and drop by!

Hope to see you soon!

Here we go!

After all the clean-ups, add-ons, fix-its, and move-ins, we're finally ready to invite you in to discover Belle's ToolBox!

Thanks to everyone who has visited us and supported us as we worked towards officially opening our doors. What an amazing community we live in!

Starting Monday, September 25, 2017, Belle's ToolBox will be open on a (somewhat) regular basis. Because this ship has a small crew, we will TRY to keep our open hours as close to the following as possible:

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday
9:30-11:30 and 12:30-3:30 (closed to feed ourselves for the brief hour in between)


Flex Fridays
We will have varied hours. Check in or join our email list to find out what's going on.

Saturdays, Sundays, and MPS No-School Days
While you can mostly plan on us being Gone Fishin', there will be occasional special events on these days. We'll keep you posted.

Always feel free to contact us if you have questions or would like to arrange a special time to visit.

We hope to see you soon!

Belle's ToolBox: in the news and inching the door open!

For those of you who are curious about our space and have not yet met us over the fence, we are pleased to say we'll soon be opening our doors to the public. After nearly two years of converting the old Keller's Auto shop into a creative project space for children to discover with their guardians, we are excited to invite you in for a look at what we've been up to. South Minneapolis' Messenger and the Star Tribune have both picked up on the buzz Belle's has been creating in the neighborhood; take a look for a better picture of what you can expect.
After hosting artists for the LoLa Art Crawl in mid-September, we hope to keep regular hours for you all to come explore the space and help us put the finishing touches on Belle's ToolBox.
