This Saturday is Ocean Beach’s annual Holiday Parade. When I moved here I thought this was the best parade I’d ever seen. The Geriatric Surf Drill team is hilarious. This is real family fun and a great excuse to go to OB and do some SHOPPING! I’ve mentioned OB before but here are a couple of places I haven’t mentioned:
Olive Tree Market – I used to love walking here and getting something good for dinner or just some cheese, but they have so much more including a large selection of wine for the wino I mean wine aficionado on your list.
Dog Beach Dog Wash is the place to take your pooch after a day at dog beach. A gift certificate for a wash is a nice gift for the pooch lover on your list.
Look no further for your candidate for 2012. I love Amy Poehler and this character. Available on Etsy and made in the USA.
Book Darts – a new way to mark your passages or keep your place.
La Jolla Farmers Market Sunday Mornings 8 am – 1 pm: SO many vendors and wonderful items here including handmade bird houses, lavender gift items, art, too many to list but here’s a couple of their vendors:
Locally Grown retails their clothing items that send a statement literally, procured and manufactured tshirts made in the US.
Chef Betsy G makes delicious GLUTEN FREE goodies.
Laurel Nation Designs makes beautiful jewelry.
Radiance Yoga in Mission Hills offers a new student private session for $75. This is an incredible value to have a very skilled and trained teacher help assess and provide for your needs. Just check out their instructor bios, many have degrees and have been practicing yoga since the 70’s.
