Totally Stealing This Idea Next Time I Design A Key Store.

How cute is this display I happened upon at Stripe in Santa Cruz? I never knew keys could be so cool. Before this, they were just things I lost all the time. Just kidding. I’m way too Type-A to lose things. Except, on occasion, my marbles and temper.

The store is a little gem in an otherwise standard downtown shopping area. And my friend’s awesome book practically slapped me in the face on my way in. That is Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s “Tomboy Style” and it’s a supercool read. Buy it now.

Let’s talk about all the detail in the dressing room…a “Ring For Service” cowbell? Vintage postcard wallpapered ceiling? Soothing green tone that cushioned the blow when I tried on those jeans that made my ass look big(ger)? Yes, please.

Well done, Santa Cruz. Well done.
