After working retail for years, it’s rare that I’m in the mood to enter in a store and just browse around- the mindset to spot merchandising opportunities or wrecked piles is still strong within me! But as a hopeful future shop owner myself, it’s something I recognize I need to do consistently to gain some inspiration. Thankfully my pal Ashlee asked me to meet up with her, and we popped into a few of our favorite stores.
Anthropologie will always be my “mainspiration” as I spent about five years working management, prior to it’s incorporation of BHLDN, Terrain, Home, and apparel to form Anthro & Co. Anyone who has ever been shopping can appreciate how Anthro is absolutely the end all/be all for installation and merchandise appeal. How gorgeous is this hanging piece of artistic beauty in their Terrain entrance?

As I myself am working on my branding, feasting my eyes on what a retail space can be is so important to keep my eyes on the prize. Plus, all the Anthro goodies are a must see to keep up on current trends and brands.
