Win It: GREER Chicago.

My love affair with GREER Chicago began a few years ago when I was first immersing myself into the world of letterpress and paper goods. Because, well, they have it all. GREER is a one-stop shop of awesome and I’m dying to get to their brick and mortar location to see it all in person (and meet the lovely Chandra!). But for now I’ll just have to live vicariously through the two of you who will be winning your own lovely pile of goodies like the one above.

To Enter, Tell Me:
1. What’s your favorite shop online that you wish had a brick and mortar location in your city?
2. Your email address.
3. Do it all before Monday, March 1st at 9am CST.

Please leave only one comment. Those who do not leave a valid email address will be disqualified. Winner will be selected randomly and contacted Monday, March 1st.

    My favorite (this month) online shop is "Mothology". I don't think they have a B&M but I wish they did.

    I wish we had either a Paper Source or Hundreds store.

    I love Ruche! I very much wish it had a store near me – although I do love that not many people outside of the blog world know about it!

    I love MaraisUSA. The shoes are just…too good. I don't know if they have any brick and mortar locations, but at least they're online!

    My favorite online shop is by one of my favorite friends:


    Fabulous custom stationary and other printed items.

    Hands down Ikea. It's probably a really good thing we don't have one here though I'd shop too much!

    I wish we had 2 Peas in a Bucket in here or a shop with designed patterned papers :)

    Either ModCloth, or Fish's Eddy. Totally unrelated stores, both equally cool and equally unattainable in Columbus, OH. Thank goodness for the internet!

    1. I love The Harbinger Co. (www.theharbingerco.com)! ModCloth too–good call, Maria.

    My favorite online shop is:


    They make hand blended perfume oils based on characters from history, poetry, art, etc. They have so many scents. Unfortunately, I think they're an online-only company.

    I also wish there was a Container Store anywhere near me!

    I wish my OWN site, 16 Sparrows, had a brick and mortar. I'd make it a partial post office as well. http://www.16sparrows.com

    only recently acquainted with Greer Chicago, i'm already considering a trip to the windy city to stock up. looking at their website creates a tactile desire for a los angeles shop.

    but since you've already claimed Greer as your brick and mortar want, there's a store that closed here and is in the process of building their website: http://www.elephantgifts.com. i miss going in and browsing and chatting.

    I would definitely have to say Johnny Cupcakes. It's the cutest screen printing shop ever, but there's only a couple on the east coast and one in LA. I do love online ordering though!

    Oh my, I would die if Toast set up shop in SF. http://www.toast.co.uk/index.aspx

    cb2.com or etsy.

    I love Greer and Chandra is the bomb. But if I had to pick a store, I'd say I wish there were a Bell'occhio in Boston.

  • Whitney

    Will you believe that I live literally a block away from this place? And have never been in? I will have to change that.

    I would say I would pick Shoshona Show Ceramics. Her stuff is amazing (I have a pieces) but its so expensive to ship. http://www.etsy.com/shop/shoshonasnow

    It'd be pretty impossible, but having a GIGANTIC B&M Amazon.com would be mind-blowing. 😉

    I wish Geninne had a real-world shop here, I'd be able to spend rainy afternoons looking around

  • alexkeller

    i'd love for any number of stores and shops, but Paper Source in particular. i miss being able to physically see the colors and feel the textures.

  • everyday inspirations

    I wish I may,
    I wish I might,
    I wish we had
    an Orla Kiely shop in sight.

    Like right next door would be oh so convenient. And a killer on the bank account. Bonus, no overseas shipping. There's a positive in everything ;P

    I'd love to have a brick and mortar Fred Flare (http://fredflare.com) in my city, specially because they don't ship to Brazil. :/

  • uglygirl

    I'd love to have a Sycamore Street Press (letter press stationery and art prints). Maybe they could sell macarons in their store for me too?

    I believe they do have stores but none that close to me. I order online which comes from Germany :(

    Sephora. You'd think there'd be one in London, but there isn't! It's so hard finding American makeup brands here.

    I really wish we had an urban outfitters, or american apparel, or a lush. It's like I live in the boonies!

    The Paper Source. I have spent so much money in shipping over the last decade! When I visit a city that has one, I end up shopping till I drop. :) It'd be way more convenient to have one in Philly.

  • Leanne

    Japanese Modern Design is my favorite online store. There are products are proof that design can be beautiful and functional.

    If they had a store in Phoenix, I'd probably go there a few times a week to be inspired and of course buy myself a weekly gift. :)

    Being from Canada, there are plenty of stores I wish I could get my little tush into on a regular basis. Nevermind all the fabulous indie design online stores (wouldn't that be nice), I wouldn't mind having a real life Anthropologie store to browse now and again.

    I love Mod Cloth but I don't know if they have any actual stores! I'd love to spend a day trying on all their cute dresses though!

    02-26-10 » 9:35 pm »

  • Design Candy

    Would love a Paper Source store here in NY…also, Repro Depot for fabrics!


    Thanks, hope I win!

    I too would love a Mod Cloth! And definitely some of the wonderful etsy shops out there!

    It may not be too original or exciting, but I *need* an Apple store here in Asheville – the closest is 2 hours away – and a Kiehl's, for sure. (Luckily they usually have free shipping.)

    I would have to say CB2!!

    LOVE this giveaway–it's a great idea.

    I'm about to make my own pilgrimage to Greer, and can't wait.

    I wish I had an Aedes de Venustas near me, although I'd have to get a second job to support my cravings if so. Everything about it enchants me.
