In this week's Sold Out column, I stopped talking about clothes for one goddamn minute long enough to turn my attention to... soap! Or, more broadly, the delectable—and delectably packaged—range of bath, hair, skincare, and fragrance products on offer at the new Spruce Apothecary in downtown's quickly filling Union Way complex. The most succinct way of explaining why I'm so excited about this small but excellently curated, modern, and gender neutral specialty store is that it is owned by the same partnership that brought us Canoe, which remains one of the most sophisticated design stores in the city. Read all about their savvy mix of contemporary and classic-European, and take a gander at some of the photos we didn't have room to run in print.
