Online shopping is great, it's super convenient and the choices are endless, but there is something special about shopping in person that it just can't reproduce. When you shop in person you shop with all your senses which allows you to make more intimate connections with the spaces, products, and community. That's why I'm so happy my pieces are available in several small shops alongside other unique and quality products handpicked by the owners to create a one of a kind shopping experience. In the Eureka, CA area you can find Erin Austin jewelry in four splendidly unique locations that are steps away from each other. Each shop has a character all it's own and carries a completely different selection of my work.
The first is Belle Starr at 402 2nd street which carries the largest collection of my work in the area. I love this shop and it's my mother's favorite local clothing store. They stock the cutest clothing brand called Effie's Heart, which has a line of dresses (with pockets!) that are the most comfortable on the planet. OK, I can't 100% back that last claim, but they are really comfortable. While you're there check out their fun selection of socks (men's sizes too!) and scarves.
Next door you'll find the North Coast Knittery and the only location that carries Erin Austin Shawl Sticks. This shop is overflowing with a colorful selection of yarns with so many textures that it takes real restraint to keep myself from touching every single thing they carry. You'll find the one of a kind shawl sticks at the counter.
Around the corner, you'll find Talisman Beads at 214 F St. Another feast for the eyes, this local bead store is brimming with color and sparkle. The owner of this shop is also the glass artist behind Ash Beads, memorial jewelry that incorporates the ashes of loved ones. We've been working together for a few years to create sterling silver pendants, rings, and keychains that hold one of a kind Ash Bead cabochons. View samples just inside the door or place an order at the counter.
Our last stop in Eureka is at 426 3rd street where you will find The Bodega. This little shop has loads of personality and carries several local makers with products ranging from skin care to clothing to art. Here you'll find a selection of Erin Austin stud earrings in brass and sterling silver. While you're there be sure to give Olive, the resident pup, a pat.
For our last retail location, we'll need to visit the lower half of the state where you'll find No Roses Jewelry in Sherman Oaks California. This jewelry shop is really more of an art gallery and features work from several California jewelry artists. Here you'll find a varied selection of my work from the Fractured, Botanical, and Seaside collections.
Follow the links above for more information about each shop, then get out and explore our local retailers! They are a vibrant piece of our communities.
