Well, today I had one of those moments when you just want to sigh "Ahh"- at a shop called Monarch. It opened a couple of years ago near my apartment and I have always been curious to go inside to see what it was all about. It had that chic look about it, but it's kind of out of the way so I just never went in. I have since gotten married and moved farther away but it is still on my way home from school. I was looking for eclectic stationery and since I didn't find any at T.J. Maxx or Marshall's I decided to finally stop in Monarch and take a look around. Oh my goodness! I could live in this place! It just has that certain appeal about it. Every item in the shop is eclectic, unique and just all around adorable and irresistable. They have a "round" canopy crib that I just love! I am thinking about taking pics and posting here on my blog because YOU would love it! From purses, to furniture, to candles, and bedding and anything else you can think of, it is like a small fairy land. When I walked in I just soaked up the smell, the slate tile floor, the quiet and serenity of the shop and wondered if there was anyone even there. Secondly, "How do these people make money?" I discovered the answer when I rounded the corner of the back of the shop. They do floral arrangements and beautiful arrangements at that! I guess the shop is just filler and back-drop for all of the floral arranging. Anyway, needless to say, I will definitely be going back and telling all my friends about Monarch.
