Books from Anthropologie

I like to bag on Anthropologie a lot (Oh Anthro.) but you know what? It's not because I don't love and adore Anthro, because I do.

If I could afford it, I would wear nothing but Anthro clothes, eat off of Anthro plates, drink from Anthro cups, all WHILST sitting against their pillows and walking on their rugs, AND then I'd frolic all over their settees. I'd end the day by washing my hands with some of their soap or hand cream. Maybe I'd pause and write a note on their notecards to my BFF Nigel Slater. (Nigella, you have become too complicated for me, but I still love you, even though your gingerbread turned out really weird and it totally wasn't my fault.)

My problem with Anthro is that they have the most amazing stuff in the world and most of it is outside of my price range. Like their $1200 SLED. I'm not going to link to all of these GORGEOUS books, you can head over to the kids' section and check them all out. But I would like to point out that while I give MEGA POINTS to their book buyer and/or department, they are selling their books for far more than you would pay for the same books at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Like as much as $5 to $6 to $7 more.

Why is that, I wonder? If they were a little independent bookstore, I'd go for it, but someone has to explain this pricing business to me I guess, because I don't grasp it. Anthro is not a little independent bookstore.

ANYWAY. Their selection of books is totally enchanting and each one looks worthy of being a gift. You just might want to shop and price around, is all I'm saying....(*cough, look at Amazon or B&N)

  1. Oh my word I am SO with you. I love everything they have. They're style is so beautiful but the prices are crazy. I usually go to them for inspiration and then buy it somewhere else. Sad but true. I do love World Market. Not quite as cool but still very cool and affordable.

  2. I've only seen their stuff in pictures and on the website. There is one at the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, and I can never find it.

  3. They do have some wonderful items! I like that cover of The Secret Garden (I ♥ that book!) I don't shop there often to be honest because it's too pricey but if ever I win the lottery, you know where to find me :D
