Wandering through Ballard, Seattle’s indie paradise, I found a treasure trove. Literally, as, adorably, that’s the name of the shop – Trove.
It’s not just what’s for sale, but how it’s lovingly displayed. Of course, it was the rings-in-books display that caught my eye first ^, but as I browsed I became well-practiced in The Double Take – oh wait that sign is painted on a door! Oh wait those are mason jars suspended from the ceiling!
Let’s look at the above ^. Put a frame on it and your wardrobe is art. How about we only buy and keep pieces that we love enough to frame?
Have what you love, but love what you have – the individual pieces at Trove are beautiful, but their beauty is enhanced by carefully arranged displays. Go slowly, and tumble through Trove’s secrets – in such a delicate wonderland things are not always as they seem. And isn’t that marvelous?
