*****This post is in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, a brand I just learned about and love. As always all opinions here are my own.*****

Time is precious, and it seems like there are never enough hours in the day.
Especially, during the holidays. Those minutes and hours quickly slip away between
parties, traveling, gifting, baking, etc. So when I found an extra 15 minutes before
picking Lilah up from school, I decided to #treatmyself. A new retail store recently
opened near me and I was dying to see what it was all about and if I could find the perfect gifts for everyone on my list.

The store is called andThat! In addition to checking off your shopping list, andThat!
is also about finding a hidden gem (or two!) In just 15 minutes, I did some damage.
Not only did I leave with an assortment of items on my to-do- list, but I also found a
couple of perfect holiday surprises for family and friends.

Owned by the same people as Christmas Tree Shops, Buy Buy Baby, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond, the store is
a perfect mix between local boutique, small grocery, and home store. The local part
of the store is my fave! As a former boutique owner, I love supporting local vendors
and so did my customers. Each andThat! store represents the local community it
resides in. Items come with a story, making a gift from andThat! a little more special.

There is also a small snack section, with all the perishables you need – like goldfish (major necessity) Oh, and did I mention there is a wine/beverage shop?! An absolute must when
you are time crunched! andThat! is definitely a great one stop shop for busy moms.
Last, but not least, andThat! carries a large assortment of holiday décor, home
textiles, and some pretty pieces of furniture. (Dear Santa, there is a certain tufted
sofa with my name on it…) And if you are an Anthropolgie lover, there is a kitchen
section with the most adorable plates for a quarter of the price.

During my mini shopping spree, I picked up some wrapping paper, seasonal pillows,
a plaid throw for my leather sofa, some Moscow mule mugs for a holiday housewarming party, the cutest buffalo plaid lined basket to put them in and a few other fun seasonal decorations. You honestly cannot beat the prices at andThat! I was
blown away by my grand total of…drumroll please…$78! (Yes, $78.)

  1. I love that they carry items from local vendors! The card in your photo is beautiful. I’m also on the hunt to find reasonably priced accent pillows…they can be so pricey! Now I know where to look…thank girl 🙂

  2. Oh my goodness, I so can’t wait to go there! I have heard such good things. I’m hoping to stop by tomorrow to finish up my Christmas shopping!
