I miss living on the east coast mostly because of the summer weather, but partly because of this store. I like to call it an experience store cause they basically took the concept of normal retail and threw it away. Terrain is an experience. It is part home decor, garden nursery, cafe and wedding venue. It is the only non-clothing store owned by the same company that brought you Urban Outfitters, Anthropolgie and Free People. Picture an outdoor nursery with small boutique shops in stand alone buildings scattered about. Then throw in a vintage green house that duals as a cafe and event space.
They have something for everyone.
- For the garden enthusiast: plants galore, containers and limited edition plants.
- For the Home Enthusiast: indoor & outdoor furniture, lighting, accessories and serving dishes.
- For the Gift Buyer: table books, candles, photo frames, local grown food seasonings like John & Kira's Chocolate Bees, which are hand-painted in colored cocoa butter with liquid salted caramel and honey.
- For Anyone: Scarves, jewelry, hand bags, journals, sunglasses and hats.
It is breath taking year round. In December they actually sale fresh cut Christmas trees and people gather around the fire pit to sip hot cocoa and shop. I could get lost there. You should get lost there. If you ever in Glen Mills,Pennsylvania or Westport,Connecticut, you must go see it. If you don't find yourself near the east coast you can always visit them online.
