Whether you’re planning a California road trip, or are looking for some new small businesses to support, we’ve put together a list of our favorite boutiques along the California central coast. From Montecito to San Luis Obispo and even tucked away in Ojai, all these shops feature beautiful clothing, home goods and gifts. We hope you get the chance to pop in soon and see for yourself. 

Whiskey & Leather

Set on one of the most beautiful streets in Montecito, Whiskey & Leather was founded by two friends who both have a love for fashion and nature. The clothing they carry is relaxed and easy going, yet bold and beautiful, perfectly representing the California lifestyle. If you’re looking for your next summer dress, or a monochromatic matching sweatsuit, this boutique will have more than a few options for you to choose from.

Jake & Jones

One of the hidden gems in Santa Barbara that sits off State St. is clothing store Jake & Jones which carries both designer brands and small labels hard to find anywhere else in the city. The shop carries products with bold colors made from luxurious textures that make us want to touch everything, or at least try it all on! The shop is a must-visit if you’re looking for wardrobe essentials that are as quality as they are unique. 

The Shopkeepers

Located in the heart of Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone, The Shopkeepers is filled with artwork, clothing, books and more. From local jewelry, to beautiful cookbooks and home goods, this shop has so much to offer. It’s conveniently located next to some of the best restaurants, bakeries and bars in town. Be sure to check out this spot during your next day trip to Santa Barbara. Need tips for your next trip? Click here for our city guide.

Summer Camp

What looks like a little shop in Ojai is so much more. Summer Camp is first and foremost a lifestyle and custom framing shop that also carries home goods, vintage decor and house plants. The space is so well merchandised, we wish our living rooms looked this lively and fun! They carry candles, ceramics, incense, tote bags, and much more. The items are chosen from their love for the mid century, camping and the great outdoors. Be sure to stop by next time you’re in town! 

DeKor & Co

Featured in Vogue, Architectural Digest, Goop, Sunset Magazine & more, DeKor & Co in Ojai features handcrafted and vintage furniture, tableware, linens, and apothecary. It’s as relaxing as the rest of the town, and even offers an on-site tea bar for sipping while you shop. Visit for coastal interior design inspiration, and leave with a few beautiful pieces for around your home. 

Len Collective

Shop owner Shannon Len, who has been designing jewelry since 2001, has curated a shop filled with goods from creators and makers who similarly cherish and respect the earth. In her store you will find unique artisan goods, perfect for gifting to yourself or friends! Len Collective is both beautiful and inspirational, and her passion for health and self-care is seen in the space that she has put together for her customers. Do not forget to stop in while visiting San Luis Obispo! 

If you aren’t able to make it to California in the upcoming months, all of the boutiques have an easy to use website for a seamless shopping experience. However, each space provides such a unique aesthetic and atmosphere. No matter how you shop, we hope you find something for yourself, for a friend online or in-person at one of these lovely spaces in the beautiful sunny state of California.
