The new Anthropologie in Harbor East is just what you’d expect: fresh and funky. The store is a chain of over 100 stores across the U.S. and each one is pretty similar, but this one is huge, much larger than the Towson Town Center store.
One of the best things about Anthropologie is that it has something for everyone. I, for one, love the housewares. The knobs on my kitchen cabinets are from Anthropologie, dishtowels too, and a few bowels, pillows, a comforter and a light fixture (it was a bird cage that we wired to be a light fixture).
There are several room displays set up around the store. Everywhere you turn, there’s another. It’s always fun to take them in.
All the fall clothes in the bohemian-vintage style they are known for were on display. How did a company that started in Wayne, PA get so funky?
The store’s top seller this season? The “Stevie” colored ankle jean by AG. The most sold are the ones in eggplant and the ones in mint green, a nice saleswoman told me. I caved and bought the mint ones. These shoots are bad for my bank account.
The store had regular traffic when I arrived in the middle of the day in the last days of August, so I suspect it will be packed once fall really hits. Even if you don’t want to buy anything, it’s one of the best places for window shopping because of the colorful and creative variety of home goods, accessories and clothes.
But I can’t promise you won’t buy something.
