In a petit spot located just off of State Street in the Presidio Neighborhood, colorful clothing, glints of gold and silver, and the intoxicating scent of candles and essential oils provide a few signs that you’ve landed in the shopping oasis Lovebird Boutique and Jewelry Bar. Owner Jennifer Scarbrough has been a careful and conscientious curator of the space since its opening in 2008, filling it with casual day wear clothing, basics, and intimates, as well as special occasion pieces, shoes, bags, and a covetable selection of jewelry. Browse gift-worthy goods like cards and original works from local artists Erica Carter and Liz Brady, organic bath soaps from Santa Barbara Aromatic, or Mermaid hoop earrings from Cali Belle. And quality is not sacrificed for affordability within the diverse wealth of collections offered here. The bright blue bistro table and chairs outside the front of the store provide a place for people to gather, shoppers to catch their breath, or simply for friends to catch up over a cup of coffee. In a world of fast fashion and big chain stores, this locally-owned store is a rare bird indeed.
