We've been having so much fun over the summer vacation time seeing old friends, again, and meeting new ones as they come into our store. We greatly appreciate you stopping by for a little shopping. More and more visitors have been discovering the special features of our second location just off Main Street. This 2,000 square foot "second location" has become its own "treasure trove" of fascinating finds. Don't miss it! We think of it as "the rest of the store!"
The count-down toward the end of 2017 has started, already, as we look forward to the upcoming holiday events in our little town. Labor Day, the Scarecrow Festival, Halloween, Thanksgiving, the Christmas Celebrations, and the dawn of 2018! And there's no better place to have fun during these holidays than in Cambria. So, we look forward to seeing you and invite you to spend a little time looking through our two stores.
There's not much new to report on the reconstruction of the bridge on Highway One way up in the Big Sur area... CalTrans is successfully moving forward on replacing the bridge that was damaged. However, the giant mountain slide that left a section of Highway One covered over is still a monumental problem. In the meantime, if you are coming from the north, it is easy to take Highway 101 down to Paso Robles, cut over on Highway 46 West, and turn north for about two miles on Highway One. That's all it takes to find yourself in our beautiful little bit of paradise! Coming from the south or central portion of California ... no change in your route. So, there's no reason to alter or change any plans you may have made before the bridge problem on Highway One. Just be aware, and plan your route accordingly. We are here and we look forward to seeing you here, too!
Remember, when you are in Cambria, there are a lot of other things to do during your stay. Moonstone Beach: search the sand for those milk-white Moonstones... or enjoying a relaxing glass of local wine as you watch the sun set... or seeing what our California State Park system offers. Enjoy day-parks to overnight camping to Hearst Castle, the hilltop estate of the late wealthy publisher, William Randolph Hearst. Tours of the estate, including ADA Accessible tours and Evening Tours are available, but you should go on-line or call the ticket office in advance to secure your tours, so you won't be disappointed! There are also the beautiful coastal vistas, the fascinating Elephant Seals in their protected beach habitat 4.7 miles north of Hearst Castle, the 1875 lighthouse (which now provides an on-line site where you can buy tickets for their guided tours... go to http://recreation.gov and search for "Piedras Blancas"), and of course, the great wine country, shopping, restaurants, and antique stores in the coastal towns from Cambria south to Pismo Beach and East to Atascadero and Paso Robles! It's all here and Cambria is your starting point at the top of the Central Coast map. So, drop by and say "Hi"!
Please remember: WE LOVE PETS! Yes, it's OK to bring your leashed pet-shopper in with you while you shop! If you're comfortable, we're comfortable!
