Unique Shopping….Nathan Turner, Hunters Alley & Tancredi & Morgen


Hunters Alley is a new marketplace created specifically for design afficionados. You can check them out here https://www.huntersalley.com.  Who better to select those one of a kind finds than one of my favorite style setters Nathan Turner. His personally curated sale can be found here https://www.huntersalley.com/events/133-designer-tv-celeb-nathan-turner

Here are some of Nathan’s personal picks

$99.00


$225.00


$145.00


$275.00

$60.00
Yesterday I had to pick up some last minute items for the photo shoot next week so I made a slight detour and stopped in my favorite shop in Carmel Valley, Tancredi & Morgen http://www.tancredimorgen.com/tancredimorgen.com/Home.html.  Marsha (one of the owners and artist extraordinaire) happened to be shopkeeper for the day so we visited as I oohed and aahed over their latest offerings.  Marsha and Roger provide locals with their own “hunters alley” of sorts.  Marsha, with a background in fashion design, creates one of a kind purses, shirts, pillows and accessories, many in vintage fabrics. 
Like these wonderful handbags…

It was all I could do to not walk out the door with one of these bolsters of raw linen.

This cell phone picture is horrible but these wonderful block printed scarves (a bargain at $65) are handmade by one of Marsha’s friends.

This wonderful mirror was constructed of an old window by Marsha’s husband Roger.

It makes me happy that in addition to the big box stores there are still local and national outlets for unique one of a kind finds.  Do you have some favorite haunts that provide unique one of a kind merchandise?  I would love for you to share them with us.

  7. Hi Cindy, That looks like a great shop. I have also checked out Hunter's Alley recently and liked what I saw. I think it is a great site for those of us who don't have good local resources.
    xo,
