Loads of Shimmer, Lots of Spice!


On Sunday I attended the grand opening celebration for Philadelphia boutique Shimmer and Spice. I knew ahead of time that this was going to be a cute little place, but I was not at all prepared for just how adorable this shop turned out to be! Right away I was blind-sided by all of the gems and colors and vintage goodies glittering and shimmering and waving hello to me. It was a delicious buffet that I was very hungry to feast on and to my surprise, one that I could very much afford. I know I will be back many, many times for gifts for friends and of course little treats for myself!
