AND HELLO AGAIN DEAR FRIENDS.
We have a lot to catch up on. Not that we wanted to be away, but we (I speak for us all here at Waxing Poetic) were busy. Very, very busy:
1. designing lovely new things,
2. living our lives,
3. building our new store in Summerland, CA, which is officially open as of last weekend! Summerland? It is between Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, somewhere on the way to LA, where WPHQ is located. We seriously found THE PERFECT SPOT for our second store, and we could not be more thrilled with the results of the many months of design and build-out. But more on that later. Here are some photos of our Grand Opening weekend.
There were gobs of friends old and new all weekend coming out to show their support. A fantastic community welcome, we were over the moon.

Patti and Lizanne have a special dedication in the store to their mom, Lovely Rita (see our tree of life frescopauge…more on that soon too)!
Stephanie, one amazing artist.
Erich and family (our real-life Renaissance Man, who designed the store…more on him later!)

The store is located at 2350 Lillie Avenue, in Summerland, California. It was a real act of love for all of us who helped it come to life (those pics soon). We’d love to have you come by, see our latest work, and say hi if you are in the area.
Much love and gratitude,
