Delaware River Trading Company, Atlanta

If I haven’t mentioned it before, I have a sweet tooth. A really bad sweet tooth. It never used to be like this, but the past few years I’ve been all about desserts. I will search this city looking for, as my friend Beth says, a chocolate “safari in my mouth” and Friday (which is now 2 Fridays ago!) I was packed and ready to go. After a quick lunch I was headed over to Chocolate Pink to pick up a treat when I saw these lovelies.

Love this print.
My sweet tooth took me right to Delaware River Trading Company, a home & lifestyle boutique that’s been featured in numerous national mags. I just found out about the store a few weeks ago so it’s funny I would arbitrarily end up parked in front of it! Carol, Tim & Rosemary were so nice, which was quite a change from some of the other boutiques in Atlanta.  I hate to say it, but people can be a bit snobbish here in the “A”, especially if you’re not walking in and immediately dropping a stack of cash.  Luckily that wasn’t the case here. 

There were so many beautiful items in the store, and the owner, Willis Watts is also a designer who’s work has been featured in Metropolitan Home and The New York Times. Loved the studio, loved the people. Here’s more.
Love this, and the color just gives it an extra uumph.
These shades are perfect complement!
Wish I would’ve taken a better photo–these pendants were hot.
Love this console with its greek key legs.
I’m all about eye-catching mirrors, and I love the size, finish, and texture to this one.

Right next door was a chiropractor’s office that had this sign in the window.
Love it.

If you’re in the Atlanta area and love a great boutique, make sure to add this one to your list!

    Long time reader, first time commenter. Since you love sweets, have you checked out the Broke Socialite’s Sugar Coma? It’s a tour of Atlanta bakeries and cupcake spots.

    That orange chandelier is awesome.

    *love the new look of your blog, by the way.

    I wish we had shops like that where I am at. I know I couldn’t afford the lint on the rugs, but I would sure go in them to find inspiration. The shops that are about an hour and a half away that look like that are filled w/ the snobbish people you were talking about. I stay clear of those.
