A few cute shops in Princeton NJ

I am still catching up from my trip to Princeton NJ last week, and wanted to share a few shops in the adorable downtown area - Three or More Shops.
Not only does Princeton have the cutest houses, it has great shopping. The center of town, which is right next to the university, is called Palmer Square. It has great shops and restaurants.

green design is my favorite. They sell only environmentally friendly and sustainable wares.
They carry bath products that are unique and wonderful. I really liked their Trillium Organics line - especially the fresh lime body soap.
They also carry the cutest kids clothes I've ever seen, as well as toys, gifts, cards, kitchen wares.
These are a few things I brought home with me - organic sweet almond body oil (love it), all natural bug spray that actually works and smells good, and the fresh lime body soap.
Super cool store - if you are in Princeton, you have to stop by.

Zoe is an ultra chic clothing store with a mix of unique designers. They carry Stella McCartney, Rag & Bone, Thakoon, Alexander Wang, and more. A little too pricey for me, but fun to look!
Zoe, 11 Hulfish Street, Princeton, NJ 08542

House of Cupcakes! A whole shop dedicated to cupcakes!
They look so pretty all lined up, waiting to be taken home.
All sorts of flavors. I tried the Peanut Butter Cup. Delicious.

They even have doggie cupcakes! It looks as though they were quite popular, there was only one left.

The Alchemist & Barrister Pub. Though I did not frequent this establishment, it looks darling. I love the name and the building. I imagine a lot of Princeton students and professors would hang out here.

The town theater is really cute - like an old fashioned movie theater. I did not get a chance to see a movie, but they were playing 500 Days of Summer, which I really want to see.

And one of the many beautiful churches sprinkled throughout the town. They all have such beautiful architecture and gorgeous stained glass windows.

Linking up to The Gypsy's Corner Three or More Tuesday - stop by to see more three or more's!


  1. Well I don't think I will ever get there but it sure looks quaint. At first I thought the cupcakes were soaps but then I read the part I missed. Lol.

  2. Beautiful pictures.

    all those cupcakes!!
    Ever notice when it's too late in the day to eat sweets, you come across all kinds of pics of them?

    blessings and smiles,

  3. Of course I had to look at the cupcake store close up because I am havely in to cupcakes for the moment. I like to make them for friends and family and I have quite a range. So I looked if I could get some idea's from that shop! Love all the other pictures of Princetown. This looks to be a fabulous town to live in. All those nice little shops...
    I see you are into antiques. You should check out my blog since I have a lot of antiques and my Three or more topics often involve antiques.

  4. Thanks for sharing the visit to Princeton. I think I'll have a Kahlua and Coffee cupcake please!

    If you like roosters, please stop by at my place for a visit this week. I'm celebrating roosters each day this week.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful place to visit. I loved each and every shop you showed. I love little apothacary's that have unusual soaps and never know if you will find something you later can't live without!!

    And I think I would eventually find the cupcake shop no matter what!! They really are becoming hot. All that goodness you get in a cake, all ready for you in 3 big bites. Yum!!

    Happy TOMT!!


  6. It was fun taking this trip with you. It's so neat to see different places through our blogging friends. Thank you for participating in 'Three Or More' and have a great day.

  7. TFS, everyone is probably walking their doggies right up and ordering it for them. :0)
