It seems like every time we turn a corner another adorable shop is there waiting to be discovered and explored. There are so many shops here in Copenhagen… small shops with that “shop around the corner” kind of feel to them. Oftentimes they are tucked away in side streets and would easily be overlooked. We have decided to unearth them, one by one, week by week, and share our findings with you. It will certainly stretch us… finding a new shop that is interesting and unique for 52 weeks straight? But we thought it would do two things: 1) Help us get to know our city and it’s shop owners and 2) Show you more of Copenhagen… and maybe motivate you to come visit, too! And hopefully not make us go broke! I promise to show restraint for the sake of research… because a scientist must always be objective! Hmmm… not buying it, huh? Well, I promise to be on my best behavior and share all the new things we are discovering and loving along the way!
I don’t know about you, but we are ready to get started! Our first shop is called Plint, and I must admit that it was love at first sight. Located down a side street off the Stroget, which is the main shopping street of Copenhagen, it stands out as you come around the corner with all it’s bright colors and cheery decor.
I discovered it the first time we visited Copenhagen last Fall, and I have not stopped thinking about it since! Our bags were full… and I do mean FULL, so I didn’t buy anything on my first visit. Traveling Man had to drag me away from all the bright prints, beautiful linens and cute, whimsical finds with promises of letting me return and buy whatever I liked.
I am not one to let another man forget his promises, so as soon as we were over jet lag I knew just where we were headed. Okay, okay. It was like two days after we got here, but a girl has her priorities! A man needs his hot dogs and a woman needs her shops!
So, what do you all think? Is this the kind of project that you would like to see more of? Anyone interested in doing their own Shop 52 for your city or State? If so, let me know! We will have a button ready shortly for you to add to your blog.
