Carrie's local lust list: Homegrown favorites


We all know Philly has great history, is a foodie’s paradise, and is known for being passionate about its sports teams; but here are a few resources you may not know about:


Sky Jewels: Stephanie makes the “must have” jewelry of the season with incredible stones and great artistry.  I love piling on those bracelets. One is not enough!

Dining Room Deux
The do’s and don’ts for buying art


Shopping for antique treasures at Best Of France. Ed Crimi has a curator’s eye for collecting, and the gardens are always a joy to stroll through.


Lithe Method kicks my ass. It is really HARD and I always have such a sense of accomplishment when I am done.


Hope Cohen’s new cookbook, Fast, Fresh & Simple, is exactly that. I love every recipe.


John Pomp’s light fixtures are graceful works of art that he creates from a studio in Philly and are carried by high end showrooms around the country.


Terrain is a constant source of inspiration (and delicious food!)


Not technically in Philadelphia, Haddonfield’s Andrea Mihalik creates trash to treasure works of art in her Wild Chairy studio.
