After a lifetime of travel, Swiss Family Robinson comes home to Laguna Beach!
Home and retreat of a former Laguna Beach artist; this property and its furnishings are nestled in one of the most unique, picturesque settings we have ever seen....Behind double gates, across a private draw bridge, up 80 steps though a lushly planted forest of Eucalyptus, ferns, hydrangeas and other tropical wonders....you arrive at the top of this substantial property set amidst the trees with a whitewater view of Victoria Beach below...a very important property.

So, if you would like to come shop at this very special sale, you need to know a few things...
First, parking is very, very limited. You may have to park a block away. Sorry in advance, but this is Laguna and I had nothing to do with city planning or parking!
Second, I will meet small groups every hour or so at the bottom of the hill by the entrance to the property. We will walk up together. I would like to schedule appointments every hour.
Third, you will need to be able to walk up at least 80 steps up and down (don't worry I will be your guide.) You will have 1 hour to shop, then we will all walk down together to the bottom of the hill where I will meet the next group waiting to shop.
Please email me if this sounds interesting or intriguing to you. I hope you will enjoy this sale as much as we have enjoyed preparing it for you. We will not be posting pictures. Full details, address, etc. provide once appointment confirmed.
I will email appointments by 6 pm Saturday evening prior to Sunday's sale.
