A closer look at the WHIMSY magazine article!

In case you aren't able to get ahold of the Carpinteria Magazine--
here is a closer look at some of the images.......

I was so thrilled with the editorial as well--
it was beautifully written by Fran Davis
and photographed by the keen eye of Liz Muraoka.

Thanks for browsing --hope you enjoyed seeing
Whimsy on the pages of the great Carpinteria Magazine!

Wee Lil' Whimsy

Oh, how we love babies and children at Whimsy!
Now, we have devoted a whole room to the precious children where you can find vintage
decor and all sorts of treasures to inspire (even grown-ups)!

For instance, check out the folk art sand toy! You don't
have to be a child to love folk art!

Some sweet vintage holiday decor is taking up residence in the room right now.
Just a few snapshots to give you a quick look.
Stop by Whimsy at 5042 7th Street in Carpinteria, CA
to see our latest addition....

Check us out in this great Magazine!

We're in the new Carpinteria magazine!!

A while ago, we were told that Whimsy was going to be featured in the
Winter issue of the gorgeous Carpinteria Magazine.
Our challenge was to create a Fall/Winter look in the heat of summer,
when the photographer was going to shoot for the article.
It was actually a blast to redo an area with a purpose in mind,
and they seemed to appreciate our efforts as they snapped away.

It was wonderful to see the creativity the folks at the
magazine have, as they put together a perfect
selection of photographs for the spread.
We were so pleased that they covered both our stores!
Be sure to pick up a copy of the Winter 2011 edition of the

Carpinteria Magazine~

where you will see Whimsy featured among it's pages.
