Curated lifestyle shops are all the rage right now and fill the instagram feeds of many folks I know. Here's a representative roundup of a few of the really good ones, all of which I appreciate because they link to new, young makers across the country. For home goods, clothing, jewelry and small batch apothecary items, there is something for everyone behind these links.
Above, welcome to LEIF. Founded by Stacy Anne Longenecker and based out of Brooklyn, New York, this is what she says: "I've come to notice that the smallest thing can inspire and enrich your daily life, whether it be a crisp new set of thank you notes, a beautiful mug for coffee or tea, stocking your bathroom with scented soap in a pretty glass bottle, or a colorful vase on display in a most frequented room... And there you have LEIF - set out to present the most special, beautiful things that add a unique touch to day-to-day living."
