Want the LOOK? I share some of my FAVORITE local South Bay - Palos Verdes Decor Sources for Holiday Coastal Decor:
In a trip out and about in the South Bay this week in search of Coastal Holiday ideas and power shopping for the holidays. Found wonderful design ideas, spoke to lovely people while on my mission. In speaking with the shop proprietors, the holiday walks and strolls were wildly successful. The owner of Fringe, a design boutique said she thought her credit card machine was going to burn up at the recent "holiday stroll", other shop owners had a similar experience and say business is improving over last year. Let's Shop Local to support our local entrepreneurs.
Check out some of my **Personal Favorite** Coastal Design shops in the South Bay.
The Yellow Vase is a Divine mix of floral, cafe, bakery and gifts Redondo Beach on Catalina Ave (two locations), Palos Verdes at Malaga Cove Plaza (New!) and Rolling Hills Estates on Silver Spur. I stopped at the Hollywood Riviera Floral Design Studio (also gourmet chocolate shop).
