Waxing Poetic

Waxing Poetic provides a beautiful way for customers to express themselves with gifts of jewelry. The name Waxing Poetic embodies life’s voyage, while the words mean “speaking in a flowery or poetic fashion.” The individual words remind us that “waxing” is “to become or evolve into something else” and “poetic” means…just that, and everything related.
The sentiment reflected in these handcrafted, artisanal designs, and the evocative words carved in the metals, gives voice to the universal truths of love, hope, faith, family – and a voice to the gift giver’s sentiment. Through their hearts and hands, two sisters have created collectible expressions, which commemorate moments in our lives. This versatile line was designed to allow customers to mix and match, providing the opportunity to create unique pieces of jewelry that reflect the story of life’s journey. Treasured moments can be remembered and cherished with one of many Waxing Poetic handcrafted designs. As life moves, stories grow; providing an opportunity to select additional pieces to illustrate one’s evolving journey.

Whiskey + Leather

Contrasting themes permeate Whiskey + Leather, the cool new lifestyle store on Coast Village Road – men’s and women’s clothing, antique treasures and the latest big looks in fashion, and a fresh bright interior, anchored by dark, worn original wooden floors. It’s these fun qualities that set this boutique apart from the crowd.  Co-owners Zee Chew and Ariel Hujar, capitalized on their shared love of fashion and past experience to create this unique lifestyle brand. The name was inspired by a mutual love of cocktails, a good time and of course clothing. And they made sure that it was gender-neutral, so that men and women would feel equally comfortable shopping the store.  As for the curated mix of timeless treasures and au courant ready-to-wear and accessories, the pair “wants the shopping experience to feel like you are hanging at a friend’s house, getting dressed up for a night out.” That feeling is taken a step further, as the cash wrap counter doubles as a place to display a wonderful selection of jewelry and fine spirits and where friends and customers can gather. Top-selling men’s lines include Scotch & Soda and 7 diamonds and for women, Tularosa, Monrow, Hudson, and Joah Brown. And if you are lucky enough to stop in on a day that adorable shop dogs Tugboat and Josie are “working”, expect an enthusiastic greeting from the pair. They’ve never met a customer they didn’t like.
