The Peak of Chic Entertains




For years, I've wanted to own a retail shop, one that sells all kinds of great things for the home. For the time being, I think that this fantasy will have to remain just that- a fantasy. But, I am dipping my toe into the retail world with my new Amazon store, The Peak of Chic Entertains. You can link to it by clicking on the photo on the left-side of my homepage that says "The Peak of Chic Entertains". (If you're reading this by email, you can click here to be taken to the site.)

The focus of my shop is accessories for entertaining including china, swizzle sticks, cocktail shakers, cheese straws, and cookbooks. I've divided items into categories like "The Cocktail Party" and "The Epicurean Pantry", and most of the items that I am featuring are those that I either own or ones that I would like to own. I included a range of price points in hopes of including something for everybody. I even wrote my own comments on some of the items with tips on how best to use them.

It's a shop that I've been working on for the past few months, so I hope that you'll take a look. I plan to change the merchandise frequently, so do try to stop by often. Who knows? You might be inspired to throw a party!

  2. Nice store. I did not see one thing that I would not love to have, especially the tobacco leaf place setting. Those made my heart skip a beat.

    Jennifer, with your discerning eye and sense of style, I have no doubt of the success of your new endeavor! And if you didn't know already, grapefruit-infused olive oil makes for a spectacular "clean-palate twist" when preparing delicate seafood dishes.

  10. Barnabus, Thank you for the recommendation regarding the grapefruit infused olive oil. I'm going to try that the next time I prepare seafood. Sounds delicious!
