One of my favorite shops of all time is VIGNETTES, located in Ocean Beach, Calif, just minutes from downtown San Diego. I happened to stop in this this past Friday, with camera in hand. I was greeted by the lovely owner Lori Chandler, and three of my long time friends ; Susie Krejmas, Beth Parks and Susan Darnell, who all sell their wonderful treasures here at Vignettes.. Joy Gabler of The Vintage Rabbit has a charming little nook with the sweetest little adornments for your home. Lucy of Paris Flea Market has an amazing room filled with exquisite finds. It was great to see my friends, and before I knew it, I had spent well over an hour there. The ladies were bringing in their newest finds just as I got there, so I had to pick up a few goodies for myself. I wanted to take Susie's aqua table home, along with a car load of things,including that fabulous seashell box purse! After telling my bud Susie that "my husband would kill me if I bring that home", she quickly responded with " well, we don't want any killings!" We had a good laugh.
Vignettes is a must see shop if you are in San Diego, and I can honestly say it is worth the drive, even if you live in the LA area. Just a warning though...you will never want to leave , but you will be inspired by the beautiful collections that are waiting for you.
