Z Gallerie Field Trip

Since we're catching up about my Florida vacation, I wanted to share a very exciting part of my trip.  While in Florida, we went to a local shopping plaza, for what else but some fun vacation shopping, and I squealed with delight as soon as I saw this: z-gallerie

Z Gallerie!  There are no Z Gallerie stores anywhere near I live, so this was the first time I've ever visited this decorating dream in person. 

As soon as I walked into the store, I saw this stunning teal living room set up. It was just gorgeous!  The "room" looked so elegant and rich with bold teal furniture and chocolate and silver accents.


Since I visited the store around the holidays, they had a few holiday table settings on display.  I just loved this silver place setting:


The store also had lots of cool stuff, like these slanted glasses:


And this beautiful gold capiz chandelier:


Of course, even though I loved the store, I didn’t love every single item.  Like these rather odd tusk magnifying glasses:


I picked up a few holiday gifts while I was in the store, but unfortunately because we had limited suitcase space (and the airline checked luggage fees would really have started to add up if I took the entire store home like I wanted) I didn’t snag anything for myself.  I guess that means I’ll just have to take another trip to Florida to check out the new spring Z Gallerie merchandise?  Or maybe I’ll just cross my fingers that they open up a store up North!
