The Made In Minnesota Expo returns for a 6th year. It's happening Saturday November 23rd from 10am to 4pm at the River's Edge Convention Center.

As always, this event features businesses who are either based in Minnesota or produce their products here. And best of all, the event is free.

Last year was my first year and it was a pretty cool event. It's a good opportunity to see all these local businesses. You can sample, shop and just browse. It's great for doing some early holiday shopping and there are a lot of unique items you might not find anywhere else.

Last year I discovered what I think is the best Bloody Mary mix ever. It's from this guy based out of Jordan, MN and it's called SideShow Bloody Mary Mix. Seriously, it was fantastic. And I found out he's coming back this year. I've gotta get me some more of that.

The expo has everything from clothing to furniture to arts and crafts and more. And you're supporting Minnesota businesses which is always a good thing.
