Leif ~ Let's Go Shopping!

I really enjoy shopping on the web.
I remember back in the day, I was so afraid.
Just the thought of typing in my credit card number and releasing my money to the world!
Holding my breath before pulling the trigger for that very first online purchase. 
Ha! Got over that real fast!

Anyway, what I've come to realize is how very many online shops are out there
and we're not even aware that they exist. It's a real pity!
Beyond my usual stops at L.L. Bean, Talbots, Macy's, etc., (the big-name companies),
there are tons of fabulous specialty stores just filled with unique & clever items. 
Some also have physical stores, (known as "brick and mortars" in the business), and some do not.

I thought I'd share several of my great online finds with you,
with a few of my favorite items featured to give you a feel for the place.
Thus starts a new series I am entitling "Let's Go Shopping!"
Also- I'd love it if you passed along tips for super online shopping sites that you've found!

The opening post for this series is Leif!
Based in Brooklyn, NY, Leif was founded in 2011 by Stacy Anne Longenecker.

Many of you know of my thing for succulents - (here's a post on that: Sassy Succulents.)
So, the item that drew me in is pictured above.

>>>Cacti Tealight Candle Set<<<
Are they not the cutest?
A set of 6 for $20.

>>>Constellation Matches<<<

is way more chic than one of those clicking lighters.

>>>Lacquer Bento Lunch Box<<<
Total fun in coral, rose, peppermint or white. $32.

Here are some of the things that Stacy says illustrate the "Leif Lifestyle":
"...a collection of vintage glass bottles that span the colors of the rainbow,
old botanical and anatomical prints,
Meyer lemon butter on freshly baked scones,
various breeds of succulents scattered throughout the home,
a garden full of vegetables, a couch filled with colorful pillows,
freshly cut flowers on a reclaimed wood kitchen table..."
Yes, yes and yes!
