GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Seeing people at stores and walking downtown wearing cloth face masks has become more and more common after the CDC recommended everyone in public cover their face when social distancing is not an option. 

But with many retailers closed under Minnesota's stay at home order, those without sewing skills or supplies are scrambling-who is selling masks?  

We tracked down six local retailers selling cloth face masks, and some of them will even match your order with a donation to front line medical workers. 

Urban Acres Creative

The clothing company located in Ham Lake, MN, offers a variety of masks in adult and children's sizes for $10 a piece. They also offer a 'buy one, give one' deal, where a mask will be donated to a local hospital for each mask purchased. 

Bumbelou

The Mankato-based children's clothing store, Bumbelou, is selling masks for adults, kids, and 'make your own' mask kits and 'buy one, give one' purchasing options. Both adult and kids sizes have several styles, and are available for $20. Masks can be shipped, or can be picked up locally at the store or at neighboring Wooden Spoon. 

Twin Cities Upholstery

This 6-person company located in Fridley is turning out masks while they wait to return to furniture repair. They offer adult masks, kids masks with ties instead of ear-covers, and face mask ear savers. Adult masks are $6, children's tie masks are $7.50, and the ear savers are $3 a piece. 

Loon and Beau

Located in Maple Grove, Loon and Beau normally makes accessories for pets. Currently they're offering a 'buy one, give one' deal on all of their face masks (for humans, sorry pups!). Adult sizes only, and each mask is $10. 

Black Sheep Coffee

This South St. Paul shop has added cloth face masks to their menu. Both kids and adult sized-masks are available, and if you add a bag of coffee beans to your order, they'll send your mask to you for no delivery charge.
