One thing I really wanted to do after redesigning the site was share more Louisville-focused content and do more features on businesses and shops. This includes featuring more local Black creatives and small businesses. I stopped by Philly’s Best Frozen Desserts over the weekend, so stay tuned for a glowing review on their treats soon. If you’re a Black small-business owner or restauranteur or know of one I need to check out, drop me a note. I’m going to start working my way through the list I found on Louisville Scoop but I know that’s not comprehensive and new spots are popping up all the time.
Until then (and it’s coming soon), today’s feature is a couple weeks overdue. I popped into this new boutique late last month and am just now getting around to sharing it over here.
When the gals at POSH HOME reached out to me originally, it was right before COVID shut down everything. So it was only fitting that it was one of my first stops once retail was able to reopen its doors.
The home and gift store recently relocated from Chenoweth Plaza to Frankfort Avenue – right across from St. Joe’s and a couple doors down from Blue Dog Bakery. But the store didn’t just move, it totally overhauled it’s merchandise and approach. While the old location focused primarily on furniture and decor, the new location offers a much wider variety of products.
When I walked in, I was blown away by how gorgeous the space was. Light, bright and airy with a modern feel, the space was still welcoming and warm. It has that California beachside chic vibe – carefree, crisp and casual while still refined – that stops our scroll on Instagram on the daily.
As far as the products, they have a mix of home decor, beauty, candles, tons of gift items for any age (including an adorable baby section) as well as limited furniture. Beyond that, they have lots of entertaining items and fun accessories like hats, bags and hair accessories. If Dress & Dwell is a little more preppy, POSH Home is a little more boho chic.
The owner, Brittany Bennett, really put a major priority on finding lots of eco-friendly, green non-toxic products as well as finding brands, items and pieces that aren’t readily available in other local shops. I was super impressed with the attention to detail in the way the store is styled and how easy it is to shop (I hate when you have to dig for things or be worried about knocking something over).
The price point is really reasonable too. I was really surprised at how affordable the shop is, making it another great spot to pop into if you’re on the way home and need a last minute gift. If you’re wanting to spend $25 – $50, you could buy a few things that will definitely impress. They also have good gifts for guys so if you need a card and last minute Father’s Day gift, they can help you out.
I probably picked up 50+ things that I wanted to take home with me but my favorite find was a wide brim straw hat for $35 that I was sure was going to be $100+ when I picked it up. I’m going to share some of my home goodies on stories too after trying them all out.
It’s a perfect addition to the Louisville boutique scene and I am already looking forward to seeing what I can find the next time I pop in. And I hope my girlfriends know they can expect a gift from there soon.
