Two days ago I was walking to pick up R. from school and found myself in front of a brand new Anthropologie store (located on Third Avenue at East 72nd Street). With 10 minutes to spare, I did a quick walk-through (not easy…this place is huge!) and I fell in love. This place is chock full of gorgeous clothing, home decor, and gifts.
Here are some quick photos that I snapped, and links to buy the products online in case you’re not in town (by the way, kudos to Anthropologie on keeping their web inventory in synch with what’s in store…I wish more stores did this).
Dotted Path Measuring Cups ($32). The sweetest little printed measuring cups I’ve ever seen. So “country kitchen.”
Assorted Drawer Knobs (about $8-$12 each). A change of drawer knobs can give a room a whole new look. I have some knobs to replace and I’ll definitely be browsing new ones here.
Petite Fille Plate ($24). This delicately painted plate is from a commissioned series by Parisian artist Nathalie Lete.
Embossed Basket Dress ($168). See that blue Ganni dress on the right? It is gorgeous in person, with a basket woven texture and substantial pique fabric. It also looks great in green. I also like the cotton-and-leather Cross Continent Weekender Bag ($178) on the lefthand side of the photo.
Global Greetings Notecards ($28). I was so pleased to see these charming, internationally-flaired notecards by Rifle Paper Co., a fantastic young stationery company I first met at the National Stationery Show last year.
There are lots of giftworthy books books and collector’s editions of magazines for designphiles. Shown here is Upper Case: Issue 12 ($18), Perfectly Imperfect Home: How To Decorate And Live Well ($30), and Anthology Magazine: Issue 6 ($12). These make nice housewarming gifts, too.
Taste Test Recipe Book ($28). I may not like cooking, but I adore this fabric-covered recipe book with color-coded sections for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
Atom Art Bowls ($8). How pretty would these bowls look in your cupboard?
Monogrammed Mugs ($6). You know I love inexpensive monogrammed gifts–these crisp stonewear black-and-white mugs are a versatile all-purpose gift.
Homegrown Monogram Mug (htis and next one). ($8). Like your monograms a little bit more artistic? These whimsical mugs are created by Australian artist Samantha Robinson.
