Boutique Peek: Spruce

Posted By on Fri, Jun 14, 2013 at 9:42 AM

Don't make my mistake. I had heard all the good buzz about Spruce long before I made the effort to visit for the first time. Oh, do I ever regret waiting.

Designer Selena McAdams opened the shop on Sanderlin in 2009 as a retail counterpart to her interior design business. Don't just categorize Spruce as a home decor shop, though. Of course, the selection of modern home decor piqued my interest, but I was even more delighted to discover a handpicked selection of stunning jewelry, handbags, and even clothes for women and girls. After shopping Spruce for myself, I would describe it as a designer's personal collection of everything awesome.



In the intimate, 20 by 20 foot space, there's little chance you'll feel overwhelmed. The handpicked selection also eases the shopping effort, whether you're buying for yourself or for someone else. Among the many lines they carry, there are a couple of notable ones: Be Free Revolution, a charitable line of handmade paper beaded jewelry, and Brave Designs, a Memphis based jewelry line of incredible statement pieces.

In the photo below, store manager Meg models her favorite necklace from Brave design showing just how much of a visual statement it can make. I left that day with a pair of lightweight summer pants for my mom and the perfect tote to fashionably haul around my laptop. The oversized tote by Shiraleah is made of eco-friendly vegan leather. Look for more about this tote next week, when I'll share my list of summer must-haves.
