A Visit to Marina Petina

Not only did I come above ground last week, but went to the West Coast for a little fun, relaxation and renewal. While wondering around the American Tin Cannery shopping/dining center in Monterey, CA, I found the most wonderful little shop called Marina Patina


The name alone grabbed my attention. As stated on the shop’s website, it “offers one-of-a-kind re-purposed furniture, handmade clothing and jewelry, paintings, and household decorative items.” Most of the items are handmade by the owner or are on consignment. The owner, Kristen, told me she buys storage lockers at auction, takes them to her warehouse where she sorts, keeping the things she can repurpose, and donates the useable items she can’t use. What fun!
I came away inspired and with some charms, a bracelet, key chain and this sweet top from NaturalLife. So soft and comfy!
