MINNEAPOLIS -  Food trucks continue to grow in popularity, but what about retail trucks? There's a few popping up in the Twin Cities.

The Fashion Mobile was started by David Grim and his wife Teresa. The women's boutique on wheels has clothes, purses and accessories for sale. You can follow it on Facebook and Twitter.

If you need furniture, there's a store on wheels for that as well! Angela White Smith converted a school bus into the Uniquely Attainable repurBus last Summer, selling repurposed furniture. You can also follow the bus on Facebook and Twitter.

As of now, most cities don't allow retail trucks to purchase licenses to sell on city streets like food trucks can. The City of St. Paul says an ordinance is in the works there to change that, and could be passed sometime this Fall.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt checked out both the Fashion Mobile and the "repurBus" on KARE 11 Sunrise.
