Kickin' Off Fall with Avocado Festival and Vintage Bounty

Mr. Avocado scarecrow is loving his life as he welcomed the

25th Anniversary of the Avocado Festival in Carpinteria.

It was an amazing weekend (Oct. 7-9) with a reported
100,000 people came to town! Loved meeting many, many new customers!

Now for a quick pictorial of some new vintage finds at our Linden store.

Summer may be over, but our seaside room is full of great decor for your

sea inspired cottage or any living space that wants some ocean related fun!

Love this child's bamboo chair!

Whimsy has vintage paintings, great chippy seahorses and some truly

great finds that would assist in your decorating adventures!

This antique swan from an oceanfront estate would look just wonderful on your

front porch or backyard or in a special room in your house filled with flowers or a houseplant.

Some more nautical finds...

Whimsy has great jewelry and these art cuffs are a huge

hit----customers are stocking up on holiday gifts already!

You know we are known for our selection of vintage photos--

Cozy green painted bench that would be perfect indoors or out!

Our Fall vintage fashions are in full swing!

An amazing selection of vintage cowboy boots and cashmere sweaters!

Looks who's hanging out near our very cool folk art cat birdhouse...

Got some extra cool mid-century furniture in.

How about this lemon slice table for your kitchen?

Or, maybe some colorful game pieces from England in a bowl?

This set of connected fiberglass chairs are an awesome orange and so


We love color at Whimsy and when you step in, you will

see what I mean...

Also a big fan of neutrals, and we have some antique grey original painted tables

that are straight out of a farmhouse!

Some adorable vintage themed Halloween plaques for under ten bucks!

An almost life sized framed photo!

And a lovely teen who found a vintage dress that was

made for her! It fit her perfectly and we all thought her

boots added just the right touch!

Hope to see you soon at both our Whimsy shops!

Open 11-5 everyday.

And, did I mention the furniture sale going on NOW at both stores?!
