A few days ago, after a newborn photo session in Valpo, I decided to spend a few hours exploring the town. Recently, a whole crop of new shops, restaurants, and breweries have popped up and I was itching to check them out. My favorite place, hands down, was Aster + Grey, on the south side of the square. Intimate and cozy, the shop offers a myriad of bespoke and artisan products ranging from jewelry to handcrafted metal signs to teacup succulents. And it's all styled and merchandised so well that you want to buy one of everything! Really!
