To wrap up my finds from my last day trip to Dresden, I am going to share with you a secret store that has a phenomenal assortment of items for the home.
I ventured off my typical day-trip grocery shopping route and found one more gem of a lifestyle/home accessory store called Schach Casa Colonial. I would describe Schach Casa Colonial‘s merchandise as predominantly French country with a mix of Scandinavian modern, vintage and Asian items. The company has been open for six years and has two stores in the city; I visited the one at Bautzner Landstrasse 7.
I have never been one to gravitate towards the French country look as I prefer a more contemporary style, but I kid you not, I could have purchased one of everything last week! Don’t worry I didn’t do that. I am already out of room in my narrow flat. 🙂
From the store’s product mix of candles, glass and porcelain plates, serving dishes, tableware, planters, frames, lighting fixtures, buddha sculptures, jewelry and furniture- I give this place the Lamb411 seal of approval. This store was awesome.

I mostly browsed the “outlet” section of the store as I wasn’t looking for anything in particular but I did finally cave for one of those oil fragrance things. I have been looking at the one’s by Ritual ever since I returned from the Lone Hotel in Croatia – see brands, it does work to put your products in hotels so customers can experience them!- but simply have not gotten around to picking one up. Finally, I noticed my fiance smelling a wall of these and found a scent we both liked. Sold. Our fragrance is now Hommage St. Jacques by Ipuro which is a muskier smell combining Brazilian tonka bean (which smells like vanilla, almond, cinnamon and cloves mixed together), Madagascar vanilla, star anise, caramel with a hint of tobacco.

This is the second “keeper” store that I’ve found in Dresden this past year. There is another store on the other side of the river close to the main square that is two floors of eclectic home ware and furniture. I am blanking on the name, but next time I return to Dresden, I’ll be sure to stop in and take the name down. I recall the first time I stepped into this nameless store, I was referring to, I remember walking up to the sale associate and asking “Do you ship to Prague?” It’s that good!
Have a lovely weekend.
More fun things coming your way next week.
