Shopping Trip: Provincetown’s Wa, Melt, and Simply Danish

Last night I picked up my friend Sharon Kitchens (she who writes Delicious Musings) at the ferry in Ptown. We wandered from the dock into the West End. On our journey we stopped at Wa, a little zen decor spot I thought was more garden goods than home furnishings, since the exterior sort of resembles a Japanese garden, but they had some great accessories sourced from around the globe.

Then I spotted Simply Danish, which just opened six weeks ago. It’s a spare space, with a museum-like display of modern home accessories from companies like Ferm Living, Stelton, and Menu. The photos didn’t come out that well, but here’s a sampling of their goods.

  1. So jealous — these look like wonderful stores! They’re on my list for the next time I visit Portland.

  2. I was living in Copenhagen for the past month, and fell IN LOVE with the home furnishing there. I wish there was a store like Simply Danish here in San Francisco!
