What We Love

Santa Cruz is a decidedly casual resort town with a style all its own. In our store casual separates sell better than business suits, since the work “uniform” here seems to be the lack of a uniform. With that said, our customers are still looking for higher quality items at affordable prices. It’s not set in stone or all-inclusive, and styles change quickly, but this should give you an idea of the kind of things you’ll find when you shop here.

Our focus is on quality, well made items, regardless of their label.
Natural fibers, and items made in the US are especially desirable.

Because designer items are harder to find in our area, we get fewer of them and they sell quickly.
We may not always have the all labels listed, but we have some of them now or have had them recently.

Here’s a sampling of things we have sold:

Modern Clothing: Prairie Underground, Loco Lindo, Flax, Betsey Johnson, BCBG,  CP Shades, Michael Stars, Lucky Brand, Citizens of Humanity, Rock & Republic, Joe’s Jeans, Seven For All Mankind, Trina Turk, Calvin Klein, Anne Klein, Krista Larsen, Cynthia Ashby, Weston Wear, Banana Republic, Lilly Pulitzer, Vivienne Tam, Tommy Bahama, Gucci, Armani, Blumarine, Michael Kors, Paul & Joe, Shirin Guild,  Prada, Burberrys, St. John, Escada, Donna Karan, Christian Dior,  Dolce & Gabbana,  Emanuel, Issey Miyake, Missoni …

Jewelry: We love most jewelry, modern and vintage, and love to pick and choose the most unique pieces. We have a large selection of sterling silver and gemstones, 14k, estate and costume pieces…

Vintage: We’re quality-oriented so we take undamaged, clean items from most eras, but it must fit in to what’s currently trendy & in style or have a classic appeal. For non-clothing items, check our Estates page.

Not So Much: We don’t take mass-market store brands (Walmart, Target, Kohls, Sears, JC Penney.) We don’t take most brands that are available at our local malls or discount stores (Gap, Old Navy, INC, Liz Claiborne, Lauren, Loft, New York & Co, Wet Seal, Forver21, American Eagle, Abercrombie) We also don’t take anything that’s unclean or has condition issues.

Never: You can be assured that we will not carry counterfeit, fake or “inspired”  designer items. Yuck!
