Obsessive Beauty just stopped by the store, Saffron and Genevieve, on Soquel Avenue, for the open house to introduce its three-month pop up shop, Oak and Co (oakandco.com). This was (how embarrassing) our first time ever visiting the lovely Saffron and Genevieve lifestyle store, owned by Scarlett Reed. The store offers an array of goods: candles, Tokyo Milk lotions and perfumes, charming journals, jewelry, antiques, and more. It has a French Country aesthetic, blended with a rustic vibe. Also being featured for the next three months are clothing and shoes from Oak and Co., a local “green” online retailer spearheaded by Deirdre Holbrook. In addition, all of the cowboy boots that went missing when Scout disappeared off Pacific Avenue have now appeared in this store. Combining lifestyle and clothing together in this beautiful retail space presents a store that you should definitely check out. You’ll enjoy all the treasures inside.
Saffron and Genevieve, 910B Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz, 462-4506, saffronandgenevieve.com. Also visit oakandco.com.
