Whisky Stones are back in stock!

New Fragrance from Caldrea: SEA SALT NEROLI

Inspired by bright, clear mornings at the shore, this watery composition opens with sparkling essential oils of Lemon Verbena and warm spice from Cardamon. An exquisite white floral heart is supplied by Neroli, the blossom of a bitter orange tree native to Tunisia. Unique mineral notes enhance the fresh sea experience, seemingly adding salt to the air. Lovely woods and sophisticated musk ground this aquatic delight to the land, and provide a home cleaning experience unlike any other.

"Speak to me of Love" from Amelie & Melanie

We can't get enough of  this  soft & dreamy scent from our new  apothecary line   "Parlez-Moi-d'amour" from Amelie & Melanie from France,  just in time for Valentine's

Valentine's - Suzy Jack Paper

We are so exited to introduce a new line of cards at  La Merceria, Suzy Jack from NYC has some of the best Valentine's cards that we have seen, the heart and arrow kit, is a fun token to show your love! or just say in spanish TE AMO!

NYC-The Standard

Marcelo & I recently got back from our buying trip to New York, and we came back more inspired than ever. Even with the current economic situation, we got the same rush of creative energy that we usually get, New York is always so alive!  but there was certainly something different in the air and is clear that times are changing.  For instance we got an amazing hotel rate at none other than Andre Balazs new  hotel The Standard, $195/night (unheard of a year ago), but the best part was the quality of service and the well designed rooms, staff were refreshingly unpretentious, and the room felt comfortable and spacious, I see a definite trend in the warm wood tones and round edges, oh and the complimentary breakfast, was not the usual  continental, the pastries were so yummy & abundant, (nutella included) the orange juice was truly freshly squeezed and the coffee (almost as good as La Merceria!) we are definitely marking this as our new favorite place to stay in NY
