Rich history

i grew up in San Diego, California. I was raised on movies from the 40s through 60s, did lots of camping, antique shopping with mom, the ocean beach farmers market every Wednesday and most importantly lots of time at the beach. I love to surf and got to live in Hawaii for awhile. The shortage of good thrift shops and the change in surf culture made me yearn for my California roots. I moved home and went on as many road trips as possible up the coast as far as the Oregon border thrifting and surfing along the way. The rich California history intermingled with surfers, mexican architecture and food and stylee clothes made me want to open my own shop. It has been a lot of work and I get lazy at times adding new things but I really love it. Exploring for new finds has been so fun. I hope you enjoy them and I encourage you to go outside and get 'em dirty climbing trees, exploring caves and dripping salsa from a yummy taco truck after a long surf. Hunt away!

Thank you for your interest in my store :) I hope you have as much fun browsing as I did finding the wears and taking the photos. All items are washed prior to shipping except for dry clean only items. After much traveling and living in Hawaii I have come to realize I love California with all my heart. The rich surf history and Mexican derived culture inspire me daily. I hope you enjoy my finds!
