*This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Land of Nod, but all my opinions are my own.
I have totally adored The Land of Nod for such a long time,
that being able to actually walk into a real life storefront and experience
the magical whimsy in person was so exciting!
On Thursday last week I had to opportunity to attend a pre-Grand Opening party
at the new Land of Nod store in Costa Mesa, CA at South Coast Plaza.
It was so fun to get a sneak peek into the awesomeness that is Land of Nod
and do some shopping for home and family.
There were so many fabulous furniture items - I wanted to take them all home with me.
This itty bitty Chevron chair was one of my favorites!
I really love how The Land of Nod fuses vintage with modern designs.
Everything coordinates, but it isn't overly matchy-matchy.
I can just see putting that adorable chair next to this book case and creating
a super cozy reading nook for the kids in their bedroom.
It's such a great storage solution that displays the books for such
easy access and let's the kids see all the fun books there are to read.
There is also a fantastic array of vintage-esque toys.
You know the really good ones - like wooden puzzles, puppets, creative
art supplies, giant rubber duckies . . . so cool!
I really wanted to take home a giant gummy bear night light for the kids,
but since I knew they'd battle for the right to sleep with it each night,
I decided to save it for a birthday present in the near future.
In the end I settled on these great nesting suitcases for the kids.
I got one set in green and one in pink.
My kids love to carry all their fun trinkets around with them,
and I thought these would be perfect for the carrying around of things.
I was right - both kids love them and use them daily.
I couldn't let myself come home empty handed,
so this gorgeous rainbow throw came home with me so that
I highly recommend scooting over to South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa
ASAP to check out the awesomeness for yourself.
If Costa Mesa, CA isn't on your radar - you can still shop online.
