RETAIL THERAPY: SHOPPING AT TERRAIN

TERRAIN

This is one wonderful store. Oh yes, I could have spent HOURS there and probably spent my entire credit card limit.
You want it…they’ve got it. It’s certainly not a matter of need: no it’s retail lust at its finest!
At least, if you are into home and garden accessories and, because you are here reading this blog, I’m pretty sure you are into these things.

The assortment of garden containers was nothing short of extraordinary. Indoors, outdoors, rustic, refined, colorful or neutral: they have it all.
Lotions and potions: many, many brands and most were new to me.
Textiles: such an array of tabletop goodies.
For your photo styling projects: there was something for every occasion.
The lights and strings of sparkling stars is amazing.

A few weeks ago we were up in Philadelphia and on my wish list for that trip was a visit to Terrain (aside from my pilgrimage to Chanticleer!)  I’ve been following the store for many years…since it was called Styers and was basically a gardening emporium and before it became part of the Urban Outfitters/Anthropologie monolith.  Yes, it is just that cool !

See the container above and below? Just one of the many things I came away with. I’ll be showing you my other purchases in the near future!

Three cute little glass jars: it was hard to choose the colors! You will be seeing more of these for sure..

If you’re not local to the Philadelphia/Wilmington area this is not on your radar, I am guessing. But not to worry. You can shop on line for each and every thing I saw. They are also in Westport, Connecticut if that works for you…

You can read more about the store and its history in this very complete interview from Sight Unseen. Here they are interviewing Melissa Bartley, Field Visual Manager of Terrain at Styers.

  3. My husband hates it when I find stores like this! He’s very good about humoring me though. I can’t wait to see what you’ve found.
