The Leaping Lotus in the Cedros District of Solana Beach, CA, is a terrific venue for shopping.

It's hard to describe the wide array and eclectic nature of this 2-story emporium in the heart of the Cedros Design District, which is itself a fabulous place to spend money on your home and garden. There are dozens and dozens of vendors with booths, large and small, featuring just about everything you could want or need:

furniture, art, jewelry, a huge selection of clothing for every body part, home furnishings, cards, glassware, dishes, all sort of decorative items, soaps, perfumes, candles, pottery, and on and on

Jeff there is no way in this world that my wife could go into a store for an hour and just browse.  If she is in a store that long I am walking out a poor man .......... LOL

Jeff, what a great looking place to shop. It looks like a place to find the unusual and perhaps bargains. I love a bargain.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a few hours to just browse around.  Love the name

101 stores!?! Pencil me in! And are those marble stairs? We have an antique mall that looks similar from the photos, but we don't have anywhere near that many stores!

That looks like a good place to bring a walkie talkie along to. I can easily picture myself getting lost in those aisles!

What a fun place, Jeff! Sounds like a place you'd have to go through several times, just to be sure you didn't miss anything. We'll have to save time for it on our next visit.

All - thanks for the comments. This place really is pretty unusual. There is so much stuff and some really good quality items and things that you might be hard pressed to find elsewhere, as well as lots of trinkets. I don;t think we have eve been there an not spent at least an hour, even just looking.

The stairs ARE marble (from what I can tell). Some of the vendors are quite small - stalls or about 6 x 8.

George - yep, I think, from what you say, that you would be in trouble.

Stuff also changes regularly, and vendors come and go. Inventory must be in the millions!! Definitely worth a visit if you come visit.
