If you are not yet familiar with Stuart Nordin, you’ve been missing out. An interior designer by trade, Stuart Nordin opened up a small boutiques right next door to Mint Condition. The selection is well curated and is not too design-specific–in other words, there is something for everyone. Jonathan Adler favorites, pet toys and other goodies, luxurious scarves and pillows designed by a friend, beautiful jewelry and incredible artwork. I have never seen such a modern and timeless take on home design, gifts, accessories and art in a brick-and-mortar boutique. Until now, we all had to go online to find this type of unique and eclectic selection. (Oh yeah, you can do that at Stuart Nordin too.) Thanks for making Alexandria much cooler, Stuart!
