New Finds Wednesday

 It is definitely Summer and we welcome all the smiling faces that come in every day to visit!
So much fun to meet folks enjoying their vacations in Carpinteria, or people stopping in on their way up or down the Coast!

We certainly have loads of new finds in both Whimsy stores! Check out the 1958 abstract painting above. Amazed at how modern a retro painting like this feels. The colors set the tone for this vignette.
Below is a classic midcentury chair that has great lines and is very comfortable, as well!
At Whimsy, you will find one of our staples is vintage seaside cottage furniture 
and a term we like to use is"Coastal Country".  
The chest below just came in today and is perfect for a beachy look.
 We  adore the "Welcome to the Seaside wood sign with the retro art.

 Our shops are brimming with vintage and antique books! They make great decor, and nice reads, too!

 You will always find Fiestaware and vintage tole trays!
 Have you ever seen our license plate pendants that Cammie makes? They are mighty popular!
 A little peek into our Seaside room!
 Love the angel wings on the classic form.
 Some great vintage bathing caps and vintage eyeglass frames!
We really look forward to meeting you and hope you will stop by and say "I saw it on the blog"!

Hope you are enjoying your Summer, too!
