This Just In

I’m working on my next article for Spaces, so I’ve been dashing all around town to take in the latest.  My column is called “Hunters & Gatherers,” so it’s my job to get out and about a bit.  I consider myself lucky if I can hunt, maintain a bit of control, and not gather.  At least not too much.

The sister shop to the antique shop I worked in, George Terbovich, which will soon be larger and carry both antiques and a careful selection of really good things that you cannot get just anywhere, has some great stuff in for Spring.

The bisque fruit, above is hand sculpted and painted.  The stems are actual stems, but the leaves are made of metal.  

The only problem with these canvas bags is figuring out which one to buy.  Or buy first.

Again, it’s not “if”, it’s “which?”  The stitching on these quilts is actually brown.  I was not their only admirer while I was there; one of the best designers in town was also taking a look-see.

Connie Beall, George’s manager and buyer, has expanded her selections in anticipation of the larger space.  She has a stylish selection of clothing including these breezy white linen pieces.  (A harbinger of Spring, I hope.)

Naturally, the black and white caught my eye.

These scarves are chic and would be just the thing to pick up a tired ensemble.  That frayed edge reminded me of some pocket squares that the Sartorialist profiled in GQ a couple of months ago.  (Oh, yes, you have to read the men’s magazines.  The writing is almost always better.)

Bags, too.  No labels, as George doesn’t approve of such things.  Adore the white, but somehow I always end up with that British tan.  

Depending on how you look at it, I did well.  I got to catch up with some wonderful women and spy some goodies, all under the guise of working.  And I didn’t buy a thing.  Yet.

  1. I love a good virtual shopping post! The fruits are lovely, as are the bags. I share the same philosophy as George: no labels on my bags. I just do not need my bag to scream out which brand it is. For me, subtlety is so much better.

  2. Great collection, nicely edited. I’m a sucker for a good scarf for every occasion.

    British tan is evergreen. But wouldn’t you feel very chic in your capris and white handbag this summer? You could pull it off and wear it well.

  3. E & E – you are always spot on. Everyone had an eye for white today, but only you picked the bag. I do think you’re right.

  4. Happy Scouting and good self control Mrs.B-
    Agree with Mr. E., white bag says summer to go with the white fruit.

  5. I just spied the lovely leather handbags! Oh me oh my!!! I may have to purchase a white one for my summer wardrobe. Siimply divine!!! And, I’m with you….no labels shouting to the world, “look at me I’m a such and such.” 🙂 Thanks for sharing your find!!!

    Also, I have a question: I believe it was you, several posts ago you mentioned loading up white towels in your guest bathroom. May I ask….which brand of towels is your favorite?

    Thanks for sharing with all of us!
