All of the good things in Tampa popped up... after I moved out of state. Of course. Oxford Exchange is one of those places. And if it weren't for the mosquitos and humidity, I might just move back to Florida so I can spend my days getting work down at Oxford Exchange.
Oxford Exchange is a gift shop, restaurant, book store, cafe... and upstairs is the "Commerce Club" where you can rent desk space and work in the "library." If I could move in, I would. Literally every single detail is perfect.
I'm in Tampa currently for my sister's graduation, but she jetted off to Paris (lucky girl) yesterday. My mom and I have just been relaxing and playing and running errands. We popped into Oxford Exchange real quick to do some shopping and I fell even more in love.
Can we talk about this bookstore? All the marble and a carefully curated selection of good reads.
Everywhere you turn there are more places to work. Grab a coffee or tea and settle into a leather couch or the bar. You can have a quiet study session, a business meeting, get through your emails... or play a round of Scrabble.
I've had lunch in the restaurant when home during a break, but didn't quite have time to sit down today. The restaurant and the atrium both have the best ambiance.
The gift shop is a little dangerous. Everything is amazing!!! (I want it all.)
If you ever find yourself in the Tampa area, you absolutely have to make your way to Oxford Exchange!
