Happy Monday! The good news 1 day down and 4 to go until Friday. Just wanted to let you all know about the fabulous shop I visited in Ocean Beach this weekend. I know…. more shopping… feels like I’ve been doing a lot of that lately.
Saturday afternoon I happened upon the Humble Hippie on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach. The sign on the door mentioned something about “a comfortable clothing company” so… of course… I had to check it out.
Long flowing skirts, scarves, vintage look t-shirts… it’s all here. I actually purchased a pretty awesome longer top with flutter sleeves to wear with leggings and boots. (perfect for a 40-ish woman– that would be me, in case you were wondering– attempting to hide some minor imperfections….)
So, not only is the clothing quite fabulous but the store itself was a delight. All the fixtures came from stores that went out of business and the “glass” display case in the front of the store was re-purposed from 3 old doors— my recycling friends should be proud! The hanging display (first photo at the top) was a table from Craigslist that was split into 3 sections. Even the rugs were thrifted. Music to my ears! I thought the suitcase display case (below) was unique– I should have asked if this was for sale.
If you’re in the market for some comfy clothes with a modern hippie vibe this is the place for you. (T-shirts anyone?) Bottom line, I had a great time in this store– Dusty– and the owner Wes were fun and cool to chat with.
