Tancredi & Morgan

November 18, 2011

I'm very lucky to live close enough to Carmel-By-The-Sea to take a drive there fairly regularly for  shopping and lunch.  It's quite an elegant little beach town with loads to offer, but have to admit that my day trip would not be complete without a visit to Tancredi & Morgan

The owner designs these bags.
If you find yourself in magical Carmel, I urge you to stop by this wonderful little shop.  They are just a few minutes out of town up Carmel Valley Road.

The owners hand pick vintage goodies from around the world.

They also have a pop-up Christmas shop just across the street.

Little paper mache yule logs.

All the Christmas treasures are handmade by the owner using vintage finds.
I ended up taking this sweet guy home.

We stopped for lunch and I loved my pretty locally grown artichoke.

  1. Gorgeous store! I'm afraid I'd be in big trouble if I went in there ;).
    DH and I were just talking a couple of days ago about maybe going to Carmel for New Year's Eve again. That's the last time we've been there, and that was 3 years ago (too long). We had a lovely relaxed end of the year break.
    And love your Water's Edge! I've had my eye on it but have been afraid all the pouf of the peplum might accentuate the pouf of my middle region ;). Looks great on you though!

  2. um. wow! lovely! adding this place to my list of things I.MUST.SEE. while katie lives on the west coast! (were you wearing your new sweater?)

  3. Thanks for the shopping tip. I love Carmel and I've taken weekend getaway trips there twice a year for umpteen years now but I've never visited that shop. One of my favorite places is the Carmel Bay Company right on Ocean and Lincoln.
