Humble Hippie- new on Newport Ave in Ocean Beach

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.

P.S. you can kinda see my reflection in the door (below)…. Cheers until next time.
