Inspirational Shopping–Close by and On line!

Studio one

I love finding new shops and on line sites with unique items– especially with the Holidays coming up. I wanted to share with a few of my all time favorites and some of my new finds!  First, for those of you in the Boston area one of my new favorite shops is Pine Straw in Wellesley!


This shop is decked out with cool architectural elements and walls covered in antique barn wood.  It is a perfect spot to find a unique hostess gift, or a great little home accessory.


I love the new tin place card holders I just bought-


and the old glass doorknob that is a wine stopper,  but there is so much more!!


Owner Tracy Cranley also has selected some beautiful jewelry, sweaters and bags – perfect gifts for the holidays!

You can read more about Pine Straw HERE.



For the most chic and stylish items all in one place you must double click over to Splendid Willow Avenue (SWA) .  Created by Famous Blogger, Monika Claassen of Splendid Willow, her on line store is a dream!


You might remember Monika started her store with her wonderful Isla Jacobsen boots which I featured last year – read about them HERE.  I own a pair myself, and following Monika’s keen advice I packed them for my trip last year to Aspen.  I wore them during Fashion Week and felt ever so cool and “in the know”!

SW Sheep

Monika has since expanded to home furnishings, like this awesome sheepskin rug.

SW Duster long

But what is so exciting is Monika’s new line of clothes by JARBO  – Europeans have a high standards for quality and style and these clothes are really stunning. I just love the new duster  – Wear it one way and it’s a great duster…

Upside down and it’s a chic wrap.  Love this!! Monika’s style is classy, cool and hip.

I also love this dress – just stunning!! ( Hubby, if you are reading this, please order one of these for me for the Holidays!) You can read Monika’s blog HERE, and connect to her store Splendid Willow Avenue HERE.



Next stop is a favorite for myself and for my clients:   Boston Consignment. What a huge inventory they have- every month it feels like a brand new store!! Here are some of their new items that caught my eye!

And they always have a fabulous selection of mirrors – like this one above

And this wonderful antique one!  You can see their inventory and get more contact information for Boston Consignments HERE.


I also wanted to share my most recent favorite ETSY find –  I adore these bowls from Suite One Studios –

Suite One Studio

Just a spectacular shade of turquoise in wonderful, organic shapes. You can see more of her beautiful work HERE.

Finally, I am cleaning out my attic and basement and have so many items that need new homes. Do you all think I should offer them for sale on WD or provide you the links to Craigslist or EBAY?? Very interested in your comments on this!

Hope you enjoyed our cyber shopping trip!! Would love to hear your favorite stops!
