Happy Earth Day

To help celebrate Earth Day we're offering a special on our Garden Pottery. Buy any piece from our beautiful collection of Italian made rustic garden pots and receive a second of equal or lesser value for 1/2 price. Since we rarely offer any discounts on these pieces this offer is really special. Multiple shapes and sizes in a whole array of colors. We still have many designs that have been retired by Vietri and are highly collectible. If you can't make it to the store, check out our web site or give us a call and we'll take care of everything for you.

Lastra from Vietri

We are so happy to introduce the newest color in our Lastra dinnerware collection from Vietri: AQUA. This is the softest and palest of Aquas we've seen. It pairs beautifully with Lastra's bright white. Try the white cream and sugar on the aqua oval tray. Layer an aqua charge with a white dinner plate and aqua salad plate. Use an aqua nut bowl with the white square platter for a lovely chip and dip. The combinations are endless. The Lastra collection has been our most popular line of dinnerware ever. Visit the store to see this amazing collection in person or click the photo below to see the complete collection online.

Dinnerware Stock-up and French Linen discounts

We have 2 special promotions going on now - both perfect for getting ready for holiday entertaining.

 First, we're offering 30% off on all discontinued styles and showroom samples of table linens from Le
Jacquard Francais. If you shop around you know that these beautiful linens never go on sale. However, we've been granted special access to the LA showroom where we've culled some of their samples from the past 5 years. In addition, Le Jacquard has designated an assortment of patterns that won't be continued next year. We're able to special order from remaining stock - also at 30% off. Bring a bit of Paris home for the holidays.

Next we're continuing our stock-up and save dinnerware promotion. If you buy 4 of the same piece you get 10% off. Buy 8 and take 15% off. And buy 12, you get 20% off. All pieces will need to be the same style and color but don't have to be from in-store stock. We can order anything from any of the ceramic lines we carry. Due to our relationships with our vendors, we are not able to offer special pricing online. Please call the store and we will be happy to handle your order over the phone. This is a great promotion so if you've thought about new dinnerware or adding to your current collection, don't wait. We offer shipping, free local delivery, or store pickup.

All remaining Atticus trays are reduced 50%. We even have a couple of pieces of Jan Barboglio and Theresa Seidel on sale.

Candleholders, vases, serving pieces - practically every category we carry.

Friday is a special preview day for our best customers and our social media fans. We'll start advertising the sale Saturday so come in early.

We've Consolidated

We're excited to announce that we've combined our two stores back to one. After 4 years of enjoying the gourmet foods and wine, we decided that it worked better for us to have everything under one roof. Now all our dinnerware and linens will be back together with all our home decor pieces. The response so far has been wonderful. The store looks great with everything merchandised together. Stop in and see how it all works.

Hospitality Night in Laguna Beach

Friday, December 7th is Hospitality Night in Laguna Beach, a community event that kicks off the holiday season. Downtown merchants, non-profit organizations provide a myriad of activities around downtown including carolers and other live music. The event begins with a tree lighting at City Hall. Then Santa makes his way down Forest Avenue to his house on the corner of Glenneyre. Forest Avenue is closed to traffic so it makes for a wonderful evening of walking and mingling in the street. Our shops are directly across from City Hall so you can make us your first stop of the evening. We'll be serving Frank's special gingerbread and hot apple cider. We'll be open late so stop in and say hello. If you've never been to the store before, click here for a map.

Don't forget we're offering FREE SHIPPING for the Holidays. This is a great opportunity to let us manage your Holiday gift giving. Stop by the store, call us, or go online with your shopping list and let us handle it from there! There are a few caveats. This offer applies to standard UPS shipping only. Crated and oversized items, shipping outside the 48 contiguous states, and rush shipping are not included in the offer.
