EVE Team Review: Best Shops of the Week


 Vintage Shop of the Week: Whatever is Lovely

It's taken some time for me to come around to the Danish Modern, Mid Century and Minimal Design that have taken some of my friends by storm. Now that I get it, I'm in love. What I think is so great about this shop is the stunning way that these simple designs are captured and offered through the perfect melding of design and photography. When I finally get around to redecorating my kitchen, I'm going to start right here!

Handmade Shop of the Week: littleghost

Okay, I admit it - I have a soft spot in my heart for anything surreal. A little on the quirky side, it makes me do a double take every time. It stems from a childhood that was saturated with B-movies and coffee table books of the Dada artists. This shop specializes in taking your breath away, and making you wonder how many delicious prints you can fit in your home.

 Newbie Shop of the Week: Upper Tiny

I always have such a fun time finding new shops. I look for shops that have wonderful photos, only a few sales and tons of personality. And, I love this shop for all those reasons.  It is great to be able to share this talented newbie with everyone, feels a little like summer time. Get your Ne-on.
