I have a new addition to my list of favorite shops. Drum roll please…Terrain!
Terrain is situated at Styer’s, a nursery that dates back over a hundred years. Terrain itself is located in Concordville, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. Today, it operates as a chemical-free plant nursery. They offer landscape services, sell an assortment of housewares, and other lifestyle merchandise, including jewelry. As a concept store operated by another favorite shop of mine, Anthropologie…you can expect some of the same great lifestyle flair and unusual mix of goods. Here’s a few pics of the merchandise I managed to snap my camera at.
As a fan of the store and its brand…I can’t help but to love the packaging and the visual displays of this place. Check out the “seed” label on the hand-poured candles!
In need of some swoon worthy kitchen towels? Or perhaps a few greeting cards?
Ok…one of my favorite areas of the store is the jewelry section. It’s fairly small compared to the expansive sections dedicated to outdoor and houseware items. But nonetheless, the jewelry still packs a punch. Again, I adore the way they display their jewelry.
Terrain wouldn’t be Terrain without those enchanting terrariums. This is the largest terrarium collection I have ever seen. They have a gorgeous assortment of rustic framed glass “houses” for a DIY terrarium. One day…I too will make my own custom terrarium!
Last but not least…this blog would = FAIL if I didn’t showcase Terrain’s cafe and its food! We loved the cafe so much, we ate lunch here and then dinner on another night. The food is simple and fresh yet delicious.
They use local farmers and seasonal ingredients. My favorite was the scallops and seasonal veggies….wish I had a picture of it! The waitress brings out a clay pot of a popover-like bread before your meal comes out. It’s served with a tasty honey lavender butter.
I can’t wait to have another work trip to Philadelphia. You know I’ll be heading to Terrain as humanly possible! Oh yeah…they do have an online shop as well.
