Local jewelry and home store coming to Madison’s east side

Modern Talisman will be on Winnebago Street

Modern Talisman LLC, a new Madison jewelry, home goods and gift store, is gearing up to open its doors on Winnebago Street Dec. 7.

Husband-and-wife team Ramsey Finger and Melita Mullen are opening Modern Talisman in the same block as Mint Mark, a release said. Finger previously owned two local bead stores, The Blue Bead and Jade Mountain Bead Co.

The small shop will have artist-made jewelry, home accessories from around the world and vintage finds. The release said all things “well-made, well-traveled or well-worn will find a home at Modern Talisman.”Local jewelry and home store coming to Madison’s east side

Some of the items include Thai hill tribe silver jewelry, a wide selection of Hindu and Buddhist amulets, beads and malas, blankets and flea-market finds from the United States, Asia and other places in the world.

“After receiving enthusiastic feedback as a vendor at local festivals over the past couple of years, Modern Talisman is excited to open the doors of its first brick-and-mortar store in Madison’s most vibrant neighborhood,” Finger says. “We look forward to bringing new energy and uncommon objects to the Madison community.”

Modern Talisman is opening Dec. 7 to coincide with the Atwood Winter Festival.
