Have I told you about the most awesomest shop ever? Its called pucciManuli and it's in Adrmore, PA, the cute lil' downtown-ish town next to where I live. It's a wonderful curated shop of high quality & hand crafted toys & gifts (for kids and adults too) that you are not likely to find anywhere else (locally, at least).
The shop reminds me of the days when I lived in NYC in a four story walk up in the lovely West Village. (I digress...) The shop is so beautiful from the ouside, and when you step inside you are entering this place where all the items in the shop are beautifully designed and it projects feelings of childhood, warmth, and sweetness. Needless to say, I want pretty much everything in the shop. (Right now there is a giant vintage couch and even a giant orange orangutan in the window.)
The friendly owner Carrie (whom I now call a friend) knows a great deal about her carefully chosen toys and has the sweetest collection of stuffed animals you could ever cuddle. (Don't tell my almost 4 year old daughter, but I am first in line when these come in to the shop! I'm in love with this Danish company called Maileg). This doll has even inspired me to draw and design a whole line of Parisian Ballet prints and patterns which I will eventually share on my site.
And, guess what I spotted when I went in this week??? It's a lovely display of many of my products. How super cool fun is that? I've always dreamed of having my items for sale in a store and I am proud for Pucci to be the first!
There used to be two of my ocean/whale wall art pieces (on the wall below,) but that image is proving to be popular and have both sold out. I need to get some more to the shop! :)
If you are even in the 'burbs of Philadelphia and need a baby/child/adult gift and appreciate beautiful toys, books and books, you should definitely check out pucciManuli. (35 Cricket Ave. in Ardmore.) // #Pucci Manuli
