Saffron & Genevieve

One of my ritual stops when I'm at home is this lovely store, Saffron & Genevieve. My mom works with the owner Colleen and from the first time I stepped through the doors I was entranced. What I love most about this store is that it is constantly changing as she brings in new items from her travels (and it's name - Genevieve is a family name for both Colleen and me. It's Forest's grandmother's name and will be our little girl's name if we have one).

Most of her objects are unique finds, but she also carries some great lines like Jonathan Adler ceramics, an assortment of beauty products, candles, cards, etc...



And now she has a whole new area of the store for me to love - her baby corner. Artist Cayce Ellison shows her original art work plus baby clothes and these precious knit mobiles.

I took SO many photos and could have taken twice as many so be sure to check them all out on Flickr here - these few are just a teaser. If you are ever in Santa Cruz be sure to stop by. You may find a treasure and you will definitely find some inspiration.

Colleen also has a blog where she posts shop updates, recent finds, shop events and more:

I love this store!! My mother-in-law just bought us a gorgeous pillow from here. I was just taking her to show her a cute place, I got something great in return! Do you think your mom would have been the one who did the pillow?!
