I stopped into Azalea at its relocated and grand home, ensconced between Gourmet Galley and Sift in Niantic in the new Norton building. Owner Lexi has decked out the large and light-filled space with her curated selection of gift and home goods, but you’ll also find a beautiful baby section of organic clothing, muslin crib sheets, and handmade toys. She’s expanding into furniture, linens, and bedding, and the exquisite sheets in stock are a sneak peek of things to come. I also loved the massive Italian mossy outdoor urns, inspiring me to update my terrace this spring. Whether you’re close to Niantic or not, this new building (with Pearls & Plaid about to open next door) is worth the trip.
While you’re there, stop for lunch at Gourmet Galley, grab some of their excellent take-out for dinner, and a few exquisite French treats at Sift.
Parking is located in the rear of the building on Grand Street
