By introducing you to both our wonderful shops, we hope to show you how we actively pursue the antiques lifestyle that embodies our mission statement:
Our shops are located in the charming seaside town of Carpinteria, California. This charming town is old fashioned, quaint and has wonderful antique stores, restaurants, unique shops, and a wonderful beach! Carpinteria is just a stones's throw from Santa Barbara and a pleasant drive up the coast from Los Angeles.
Our first born is Whimsy Home and Garden. This fun and inspirational shop is located in a 100 year old former flower packing warehouse complete with a tin roof, high open beam ceilings and a working Swedish fireplace. Tucked just off the beaten path, we are a treasure trove filled to the brim with vintage finds and antiques including: vintage folk art, vintage furniture, estate jewelry, nautical and seaside antiques, vintage textiles, vintage art, vintage cottage décor, coastal country style antiques, vintage garden finds and furniture, and European antiques. Our talented dealers are always playing with stunning displays and you will find you can transport an entire display directly to your home!
A short walk will bring you to our latest Whimsy relative, Whimsy Town and Country. This wonderfully alive and extraordinary shop, while still embodying the "Whimsy Style" has a decidedly different vibe. With our unique mix of vintage architectural salvage, hip vintage clothing and jewelry, seashells, vintage school maps, vintage furniture, and the unexpected fun that Whimsy is known for in the world of interior decorators and the film industry, you will always discover a fresh twist on the world of antiques!
Whether you are decorating your humble abode, vacation house or Paris apartment-Whimsy can help make it home!
