Two Minnesota Items on Oprah’s Favorite Things of 2022
Oprah has come out with her list of favorite things for 2022. There are some familiar items that she's had on her Favorite Things before and there are some new ones. This year there are two items that have Minnesota ties!
Oprah's Favorite Things of 2022
I enjoy looking through Oprah's list every year. Most of the time I find a few things that I like but then I look at the price tag. For me, some of that stuff I can't justify the price but I'll add it to my Christmas list in case anyone is feeling extra generous!
This year, there are two Minnesota items that are on the list and both have actually been on past Favorite Things lists.
Minnesota Items on Oprah's Favorite Things of 2022
Item number one is Softies. Specifically, Oprah shouts out the Heathered Marshmellow Lounger this year. I don't think that's the same one she listed last year but something from Softies has been on Oprah's list for 6 years in a row now!
Softies' Minnesota connection is that the company began in Minnesota back in 2005. Everything they sell looks so, so soft but they also have a pretty high price tag for loungewear. For example, the Heathered Marshmellow Lounger is going for $119.
Item number two is Minnetonka Moccasins, specifically Minnetonka Lucie Women's Slippers. They look super cute! And as you make be able to figure out just from the name, Minnetonka Moccasins is in fact based in Minnesota (in Minneapolis though, not Minnetonka). The slippers Oprah has listed are going for $55.
