We live in paradise every day of our lives and you would think we would get used to the perfection of Santa Barbara, maybe even begin to take it for granted, but the longer we live here, the more we realize how lucky we are. Perfect weather, perfect scenery, perfect restaurants, and probably our most favorite perfect of all, perfect spots for shopping in all of the country; our perfect paradise has it all! And because we know how much fun it is to lug back suitcases filled with treasures we have hunted down on our vacation getaways, we are providing this list of the best Santa Barbara shopping spots, so you can find your own perfect haul!
As much as everyone loves their hometowns, sometimes it takes awhile for the latest trends and fashions to make it to your neck of the woods, so a trip away can be a godsend for your closet-especially when you visit Lovebird Boutique & Jewelry. Offering the latest trends at budget-friendly costs, it's also a great place to pick up a sweet-smelling candle for your Aunt Debbie who stayed home to watch your precious pooch!
Speaking of picking up gifts for the folks back home, Plum Goods is another spot we love to browse. Specializing in organic, American, and upcycled goodies, you can feel good about spending your vacation dollars on a stained-glass moon to hang from your kitchen window, or those darling beaded earrings your mom will want to wear every day!
Remember the good old days when you would sit in your room listening to your favorite singers perform their hearts out on vinyl? The good news is that records are coming back in style-even better is the news you can buy the best of your childhood from Warbler Records. Even today's stars are praising the virtues of vinyl, and you can buy whatever you like at this vintage store, a unique place in our Santa Barbara shopping spots.
If we didn't have to work to earn money for our shopping habits, every spare moment of our day would be spent right here, perusing the aisles for treasures we can't live without! This award-winning antique/vintage shopping spot offers everything from the smallest of trinkets to the grandest surprises; you may not be able to purchase that mid-century modern coffee table you've been dying to own, but there's plenty of room for that art deco brooch in your carryon!
