Every trip is an excuse to go shopping and eat good food, is it not? I was recently admiring a client’s jewelry when she told me she had purchased it from Terrain, innovative garden store/restaurant/nursery concept from the folks who brought us Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters and Free People. An invite to a baby shower outside of Philly this past weekend was the perfect excuse to head to Glen Mills, PA and check it out. My visit to Terrain was a dream, perfect weather and…an Heirloom Tomato Festival! There was a limit to what we could buy while traveling with a toddler stopping to splash in every puddle and dig in every pot of dirt. However, I did come home from Terrain with fresh Wild Flour Bakery bread, Peppermint Goat’s Milk Soap, and Little Flower Candy Company Sea Salt Caramels.
