I must have said it a lot on this blog and I will say it again, I love Takoma Park! I love the neighborhood, I love my neighbors who bbq with me, I love that I have a Farmers' Market half a block away from me YEAR ROUND and that there's a hardware store just around the corner...now there's one more thing to love about Takoma Park. TROHV! As a crazy fan who reads Apartment Therapy, Etsy, a bunch of home decor blogs daily or maybe twice-daily, I was so excited when I found out that a vintagey modern home good store was taking over the empty ugly lot across from CVS. Also, you have no idea how thrilled I was when the ugly exterior of the building was finally painted a beautiful tint of slightly greyish blue when TROHV arrived!!!
I've visited the store now a handful of times since it opened and every time I go in there, I am in awe of what the owners have done to the place. How is it that a hugeeee lot, filled with tons of different things: cards, vintage bottles, furniture, kitchen items, cook books, quilts, baby clothes, bowling pins (!), etc etc (the list seems endless), be organized in such a way that makes sense and above all, beautiful, comfortable, artistic, and inspiring.
Yesterday, to celebrate their grand opening, TROHV had a party! It was great to see tons of people from the community enjoying good food and good music for the occasion. Here are some photos!
