Tag Archives: Shopping

There is not a lot of inspired shopping anywhere, especially when it comes to the big global brands.  Clearly, that is a bold statement, (and my opinion); generally there is repetitive design, poor lighting and uninspired merchandise. I experienced a paradigm shift last week when I visited the newly opened Loewe shop in the Miami Design District.

Privet House is one of my favorite shops for home accessories. From table linens, vases, trays and cutting boards to an occasional scarf and fabulous vintage finds, there is always something tempting for yourself or your hostess. The shop has recently moved from the hamlet of Warren, CT to the stylish village of New Preston to join other delightful independently-owned stores. Each one has its own personality with an ever-changing assortment of wonderful things.  With the holiday bearing down on us all, I took some photos of what it is like to shop in beautifully stocked and merchandised places where the sales associates are mature, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
