Remember when I said I was such a big fan of Lisa Manuels, her shop and workshop-space Elle Aime? Well, Lisa has taken it to a whole new level. On January 31 she opened up a bigger and better shop in the cool northern area of Rotterdam (Zwaanshals 271b is where you’ll find the shop) and I was so honored to be invited to the openingparty!
The shop is so pretty, and because it’s bigger than before there are even more cute handmade gifts to choose from, and so many great craft materials to start DIY-ing today! And the window is just amazing, decorated with her own illustrations… It’s such an inspiring place to be, and I’m so proud of Lisa! I mean, we all dream of our own shop (at least I know I do), but the fact that she actually did this is just… very inspiring. If I ever opened up my own shop I’d hire her to style and decorate it!
If you’re ever in the neighbourhood, pop in and see for yourself what an adorable place this is. And I’m sure you won’t walk away empty-handed, there’s just too much you want to have!
