So, as I enter into my last week at our Ocean Beach location, I reflect on where the business started, where it is and where its going.
I am beyond grateful for everyone in the OB community who has embraced me and my little shop, from humble beginnings.
Let me share a few pics of where we started + where we are now:
2011 2014 NOW
As you can see, we started off a little rough around the edges but today, we are a little more polished.
Bittersweet as it is to say goodbye to my little 250 sqft shop, I am bubbling over with excitement over the decision to start up smaller spaces, but more of them around San Diego and beyond.
I'll be maintaining spaces in Ocean Beach, at Thistle (4822 Santa Monica Ave.), in Hillcrest, Creative Crossroads (502 University Ave.) and in Solana Beach at Leaping Lotus (240 S. Cedros Ave.).
We also have launched the absolutely beautiful Pine Tree Road Soap website + am I personally working on adding a shaving collection of accessories, candles and hand crafted soap dishes....these are all projects I'll be working on with the time that I am not in a retail shop.
I hope you continue to follow us on our adventures + thank you for your unending support and LOVE!
