Shopping on ‘Vacay’!

I got to go to my very FIRST Anthropologie store and it really was fabulous!

I asked if I could take photos to put on my blog and the lady said, OF COURSE!

So I walked around taking everything…

until I finally had to get serious about what I wanted to buy. I had a gift card that was burning a hole in my pocket so I had to buy something! lol

I’ll show you later what I got!

For now…

I’ll just keep walking around the store.

Oh, it’s time to GO?

We went to Tanger Outlet another day and I fell in love with Fresh Produce clothes. Have you ever shopped there? Their products are about 80 % Made in the USA… which makes me very happy!

Do you like to shop on vacation?

Myrtle Beach has some wonderful shopping!

I've never shopped at, or even seen an Anthropolgie store. I am so deprived lol! I haven't even heard of fresh produce other than the kind we eat. I do like to do a little shopping on vacation, and I can't wait to see what you bought! Oh! Love the floors in the Anthropolgie store!

OMG! I am very envious! I see bags you must be walking in seventh heaven hehehehe. Love to shop while on vacay and never been to Anthropologie. Thanks for the site of fresh produce I also like product that is made in the USA!!! I can't wait to see your shopped items. ^_^

You looked happy with those bags of goodies. I love finding things made in the good old U.S.A. I know that Menard's(big store) sells many things made in the U.S. It's home repair and products for the house...not cute clothes though. Now you will have to show some of the things you bought. Smiles, Susie

I love the cheerful response you got from the sales clerk. I rarely ask anymore because I get such negative responses. One time, the manager stood over my shoulder (after first giving permission and later changing his mind) and watched as I deleted each and every photo I had taken. I've not returned to that store.

Shopping while on vacation is the best! I feel like I'm not in "the real world" so money isn't real either,lol. Yes, I buy too much. Haven't heard of Fresh Produce or Tanger Outlet. Glad you had fun.

The Owl Cookie Jar...the Owl Cookie Jar! That is what I'd pick.

Susan said...

We were first introduced to Anthropologie when we lived in Massachusetts--my girls loved it. We have one here, but it's in downtown Seattle and with our new toll (which is pretty high) on the 520 Bridge, I don't get into Seattle as much as I use too. It looks like you had a fun time and I can't wait to see what you bought! XOXO

Stacey said...

The first time I went to Anthro I didn't like it. The particular store was dark to me. Now I love them! The dishes and dishtowels are my fave. :)

Betty@SouthernGrace said...

I've never heard of that store either. I'll be on the look out now. The things you learn from blogs.... They should be glad you put this on your blog!

Sheila said...

Looks like you've been having a fabulous time in Myrtle Beach with the family. If your top is from Fresh Produce I see what you mean - it's really pretty. There's an Anthropologie store a couple of hours south of us. It's an interesting store but very expensive. Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Shelley said...

Can't wait to see what you have in those bags :) Blessings

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I've never been to an Anthropologie store but it looks like a great place to shop! Loved all the owls! Can't wait to see what you bought! Hugs, Linda

Juanita said...

Oh, if given the opportunity, I'd shop in my vacation, or whenever I am abroad! The best kinds of souvenirs I take home for myself are material that I can later work with, or use :D
Gone are the days of refrigerator magnets or ornaments :)

It's me said...

Wowwwwww...what a great store......love Ria...xxx...

cucki said...

big hugs xxx

Linda Penney said...

Wowwwwww...what a great store......love linda xxx

Danielle said...

I have never been to one but oh it looks like fun. One of my favorite places to shop in Myrtle Beach was a shopping center that was built like a rough hewn 'boardwalk' with all kinds of little shops that wrapped around..kind of like a porch. I don't know if it is still there but it was always fun to shop all the different shops there.

jody said...

i also have never been to an anthropologie store but know i would love it! thanx for showing pictures! enjoy your vacation!

Shelia said...

Oh, boy! You had some shopping fun! I've only been in Anthro one time and thought it was amazing. You took some great snaps too. We're getting a Tanger Outlet Mall not far from us and I'm so excited about it since we don't have much on our little island.
Thank you so much for your kind comments. I consider you my friend and appreciate your words.
You are the sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Wow, aren't you lucky, looks like you found some nice things, if the bags are any indication. Good for you.

I think they opened on in Vancouver just after we left, so maybe one day when we go back to visit.

ImSoVintage said...

Look how cute you look. We are supposed to be getting and Anthropologie here. Can't wait :)

Mary said...

Good going, smart shopper...I like those outlet malls. We lived by one in CA and it was so fun...I could be there from my house in 7 minutes. I went often!

Anne said...

omg, your first Anthro? I'm sad that you've gone this long without the pleasure of this quirky and wonderful place!

Anne said...

I'm so glad you took those photos, I've never been in that store yet either! Thanks for sharing :) Glad you had fun!!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I can't wait to see your anthro purchase! I do shop on vacation, and usually we buy artwork to remember our trip!

xo,
RJ

kitty said...

What a fun day, Diane! I can't wait until you share what you bought.

cynthia lee designs said...

Looks like you had some fun on your shopping trip!! We have an Anthropologie store in a mall that is about hour away form here...my daughter and I love to go there. We also have a Tanger Outlet Mall that is about an hour away. There is a Pottery Barn Outlet Store there and it is one of my favorite places to go.
Can't wait to see what you got.
hugs,
Cindy

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'm not a big shopper, but I love to explore outlet malls when I run across them on vacation. Uusally, I just leave hubby in the hotel room in front of the tv and go by myself! Now, I'm wondering what you bought!

Cameron said...

You had a giftcard to Anthropologie?! You lucky, lucky girl!

I don't go in there...the prices depress me...but it is beautiful, isn't it?!

Can't wait to see what you got :)

Kim K. said...

I can't wait to see what you got at Anthropolgie. It's a fun store. Love those owls.

LBP said...

Myrtle Beach has an Anthropologie?? How did I not know this? Is it new? We usually go to Myrtle once a year, but didn't this year. Love Tanger outlets, last year I made our like a bandit in the Ralph Lauren outlet buying polos for my son.

Glad you have a fun shopping trip!

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Looks like so much fun. Would you believe I've never stepped in Anthropologie? I hear women talking about it all the time, but I've never visited. Looks gorgeous. YES, I like shopping while on vacation, especially if it's items known only to the area.

You look like you're having a ball. Enjoy, my friend.
Hugs,
Marcia

Donna said...

I would love to shop in an Anthropologie store! They don't have store like that around here. And the nearest Tanger Outlet is way over in the Gatlinburg area. We avoid the tourist crowds, LOL! Yes, we like to shop more when we are on vacation. When we're home, we usually shop off of the internet!

Terri Buster said...

I haven't heard of either store, but I love, love, love to shop! Looks like you had a fantastic time.

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Diane, I just saw your comment at Linda's. I had no clue it was your son's birthday today too. Happy birthday!!! So far mine has been so much fun. My husband and the kids and friends are taking me to dinner.
Birthday blessings to all.
XOXO's,
Marcia

Dorothy said...

Oh, I want every one of those owls!

Heather said...

Oh how fun! I love Anthropologie! Even to just go and look, so many inspiring things to be seen! looks like you had a great trip! And thanks for stopping by my blog :)

Ames said...

Of course I do. I can't wait to see what you got!~Ames

Katie said...

Love Anthropologie! I used to work for them years ago... XoXo

Lisa Oceandreamer Swifka said...

OMG I LOVE Anthropologie..if I had a gift card for there you can be sure it would have burned a hole in my pocket as well. AND wow, Fresh Produce...I had some of their tshirts and 2 of my nieces wore a lot of their kids clothes. So bright and cheerful. I have not seen that brand anywhere in years. Sounds like you had a rather lucrative shopping day!!
