During our holiday, we went for a day to Portsmouth. Although I am certain that there are other musts and stops you should make while being in this charming city, I thought I’d share with you my favorite spots. Downtown Portsmouth is this cute area near the water with red brick buildings. It made me think of Boston a lot.
Scallops Mineral and Shell Emporium
This place is incredible. It has everything. I was particularly interested in a ring but they didn’t have my size anymore. Otherwise, the Open Road spray really intrigued me and I would’ve bought every single mineral if possible.
Birchrose + Co
Ok. Where to even begin. We stumbled upon this place really by accident and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’m still dreaming of their products. They create and make all of their products, they have the PRETTIEST packaging, if you think that the exterior is cute well the interior is a hundred times better. I bought the Botanical Facial Steam and the Canabliss candle (hello patchouli lovers). I want e-ve-ry-sin-gle products. They also have curated products for Moon Juice, Kosas and others. I STRONGLY recommand paying them a visit. Now, I am dddyyyinnnggg for the eye serum.
Not much to say about this place except that is is a-ma-zing! You can buy herbs, crystals,you can have a reading in there. We bought patchouli incense and it is litteraly THE best we ever bought. It smells like patchouli but in the best way possible, it is sweet and subtle and the perfect dose. We truly are in awe and we still talk about this shop. The guy working there was SO nice and sweet and he had the best energy. Like incredible. I suggest you stop by for witchcraft and magical stuff or for one of their classes such as Herbal Alchemy.
Aaawwwwww. I want, once again, everything in that store. This boutique has the most amazing card and wrapping paper selection. How creative and beautiful are their window displays, right? They have tons of stationery and other cute things and they now have a store in Portland,ME also. YAY!
As for the food, we really wanted to try The Fresh Press, but unfortunately it was closed. Still, I can’t wait to go back and hopefully have one of their smoothie bowls. Another fun store was Off Piste! Portsmouth, you really charmed us.
Alie, love this typo.
