I wasn't familiar with Henri Bendel because its only New York location is in Manhattan. The new one near my house is their first store on Long Island.
What a great place! They sell fashion accessories, handbags and pretty items for the home. All their products have noticeable style and flair, and their quality is manifest.
I learned that Henri Bendel opened their New York City store in 1895, over a century ago. It was the first retailer to bring the designs of Coco Chanel here from Paris. The store has heritage.
While there, I got a great idea. What better way to share this with you than a giveaway! I picked up a Lemon Verbena fragrance diffuser, a dark chocolate bar and the most adorable coffee mug. The coffee mug is made from bone china and has gorgeous fashion outfits painted all around the side. There are three pictures of it below to show you the different outfits.
To enter the giveaway for these items, just leave a comment. (If you're shy and don't want to publicly comment, shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.) I'll pick one at random on Friday.
Have you ever heard of Henri Bendel?
P.S., I don't do sponsored posts. I wandered into this store on my own, propelled by curiosity, and liked what I saw. I bought these items with my own money.
