UPSTAIRS AT PIERRE LAFOND

The next time you take a trip to Santa Barbara, I highly recommend stopping in the town of Montecito, just south. Pierre Lafond has quite a setup there with his Wine Bistro and Montecito Market, along with his wife's Wendy Foster and Upstairs. Today we're exploring Upstairs, a beautifully curated shop of unique pieces for home, gifts and the kids. 

I'll have to tell Twink to add these to her next Kitchen Towel Guide.

I spy some good Rifle Paper Co. options in there.
