Happy Friday!

Happy Friday Everyone!

I’m waking up in NYC today!  Will and I are here for a wedding, and boy does the cooler air feel good.  I’ve packed my scarves and boots and I’m beyond excited to wear them and wander around the city for the next three days…

Before I left I took more pics of the boxes and boxes of new goods arriving in the shop… cashmere sweaters, some gorgeous new jewelry…and our first shipment of TREES!!!

We’ve got a lot of great new finds at Gum Tree Kids too!
Mini S’well bottles to fit in their lunch boxes have finally arrived, and lots of new toys and decor too…

So pop in this weekend for a visit, we’d love to see you!

I also want to let you know about a fun shopping fundraiser we’re having next week…

Tuesday, October 20th…ALL DAY
20% of all dollars spent at Gum Tree Shop and Cafe, and Gum Tree Kids will be donated to the fund for the renovation of South Park Playground!


You may have read about the renovation of South Park here in Hermosa Beach.  A dedicated group of women (supermoms in my opinion) have been working tirelessly for years to turn the run down play area at South Park into a Universally Accessible and Natural Playground.  They are close to the fundraising goal, but they need help raising that last bit of money.

If you can’t make it to our shopping day, and would like more information on how you can help, please click here.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Think Globally, Shop and Eat Locally!
