‘Tis the season of pop-up shops, that I can tell you. I have one more to write about this week, but first let me talk to you about my visit to The Plantshop this weekend. I wrote about it before, where I almost couldn’t contain my excitement, so imagine what happened when I actually set foot into the shop this past Saturday.
Anne & Hanne from online design shop Baroness O. and Belgian designer Sofie Claes really outdid themselves for this venture. This place is bursting with all things creative and it all blends in so well together: the plants, the design, the clothing, the magazines, the coffee. I could go on forever about it.
I picked up one of the custom notebooks (I adore how they turned a regular notebook into something special), an issue of Kinfolk (finally!) and one of the products designed for The Plantshop: a hand and body cream. The herbal & flowery scent is just perfect.
I hope to visit them again before they close by the end of December and if you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift, then The Plantshop is your go-to shop. If you just like to be surrounded by cool people, great design and creative minds in a beautiful setting, you might consider stopping by as well.
See you there?
ps: I just have to mention that Sofie Claes designed the most perfect leather jacket for her Wolf. by Sofie Claes line. I think I fell in love with a jacket (now, that’s a first).
