Love Note #55: Caroline Bean loves Verde in Midtown Village. But beware, she and I can attest to the fact that you will not leave empty handed

Caroline Bean
Favorite Spot: Verde
Neighborhood: Midtown Village, a.k.a. the Gayborhood
Address: 108 South 13th Street Philadelphia, PA 19107

I am: The Director of Social Media for the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation, aka Visit Philly. I enjoy what I do because I love talking about Philadelphia all of the time – our green spaces, our outdoor dining, our bike lanes, our beer, our museums… all of these things make my job a joy.
Years in Philly: Nearly 10
Current Home: Graduate Hospital



My love note: I love popping in and out of shops on 13th Street in Midtown Village (also known as the Gayborhood). The neighborhood has such history (with famous bars like Woody’s), but is also going through an awesome period of rejuvenation with restaurants like Sampan, Amis and Zavino. But there’s one place I can never resist when buying gifts (or a treat for myself): Verde features handmade Marcie Blaine chocolates, spot-on jewelry (like a little gold soft pretzel necklace), handbags from local designers, really unique cards and everything else delightful! Verde also carries fun wine totes that list Philadelphia neighborhoods, perfect for heading to one of Philadelphia’s BYOBs, and lots of Philly-centric tees. I don’t think I have ever walked out of this place without buying something.

      Chaucee, you HAVE to go there. All of their stuff is amazing. I went just to take pics and left with a purse and necklace. Just couldn’t help it.
