Picture this: you’re sitting in a velvet wingback chair staring pensively at your worn copy of War and Peace (because, ya know, you’ve read it 23,592 times), sipping a snifter of aged brandy, presumably. The walls are lined with cherry bookshelves that are, of course, well-stocked but simultaneously styled with things like an heirloom ship model and iron Scottie dog bookends. Maybe throw in a marble bust or two.

Now, those amazing antique knickknacks that make your study look like a cross between a scene from Dead Poets Society and Winston Churchill’s library (I imagine) can be bought in Duke & Winston‘s fantastically curated new antique section, Duke’s Library. Items are pricey, but they do all the culling and heavy-lifting, leaving you with the most charming selection of preppy odds and ends to outfit your shelves.

Next: How to shop the goods.

Store opening alert: Frey Boutique is opening in Newtown Square on October 24. The shop will be housed at 3555 West Chester Pike and after seeing how each shop reflects the local area’s flair (see: their Ocean City location), we’re positively giddy to see what they’ll do with the space. Really, the addition of brands like Rag & Bone, Equipment and Vince is just the icing on the cake.

So, about Exton.

It’s finally here! After two decades in its former Marlton space, Erdon has set up shop in a somewhat unlikely new spot: the Moorestown Mall. (Yes, really.) Here’s what you need to know: The space is cavernous (2,500 square feet), it packs a larger selection of hard-to-find brands like Ivan Grundahl and Acne, and it’s every bit a high-fashion boutique—in a mall.

Sneak Peek at United by Blue’s New Walnut Street Location

UBB-Marquee

Just one year after the eco-conscious coffee shop and clothier opened their flagship in Old City, they’ve expanded into University City with a new location at 3421 Walnut Street. “It’s been in the works for the past six months now,” says founder Brian Linton. It’s not open yet, but Shoppist got a sneak peek at what’s in store and we’ve returned with lots of snaps to share.

You need to see this place.

Eeeee! In case you forgot, Nordstrom Rack’s opening is just around the corner. A Philly Mag staffer snapped the above pic which shows the official signage being mounted. He also got word from a construction worker outside that the store will open on October 24. Excited? You bet.

But wait, there’s more!

Shoppist got in early to snap a few pics of the new spot, and get some intel. And we scored big time.

Just see for yourselves.

Philly Mag Shops Store Preview: Style Camp

Style-Camp

See the custom quilted skirt? It’s brand-new for fall, and it’s 40 percent off on Oct. 5th only. (You won’t believe the price.)

We’re only nine days away from our second annual Philly Mag Shops! To recap: It’s on Sunday, October 5th, at Philly’s Crane Arts bulding from 12pm to 3pm. Over 30 boutiques and designers will be bringing their best fall goods and discounting everything. Think of it as the ultimate mall, plus the most ridiculous designer warehouse sale ever. (So, yeah, get your tickets.)

I’ve done some recon to help you plan your shopping. I’ve already told you about what The Atelier is bringing (you will love it all, I swear), and next up, we’ve got Style Camp, one of my fave boutiques in the area.

I chatted with owner Natalie, and she filled me in on some of the covetable goods she’ll be bringing. Trust me: The skirt alone is worth going for.
