My Anthropologie Story
Just thought I'd show some images of things I've got in the boatshed that I bought at Anthropologie that I think are really lovely. Being Australian, I'd never heard of Anthropologie until I was in Los Angeles in July 2005. I'd gone out on a bus (!) to Santa Monica to find the Shabby Chic store (I know, not very cool, but I didn't know at the time). While I was out there looking for SC, I stumbled into this store that I thought was absolute heaven, and found out it was called Anthropologie. The things I bought were: the pink and green bowls, the pink photo frame, the little peach and olive photo album and the blue floral magazine holder. I then proceeded to take them on a 6 week trip to Europe with me, and they arrived back in Australia completely unscathed! I loved Anthropologie so much that I also went to the store in New York and bought some clothes and tea towels. I've been seeing a few blog posts lately about Anthropologie that give me hope that 1) it still exists and it wasn't a figment of my imagination, and 2) I may get back there at some time in the future. I wish we had one in Australia.
