Magazine Editors’ Shop in Summerland

••• The little street-front building at Big Daddy’s Home & Garden in Summerland is a Studio C—as in “curated by the editors of C Magazine”—shop, presumably of the pop-up variety. Jill Nelsen posted a nice video on her Instagram story, from which I took the less-nice screenshot above. Studio C’s website refers to the building as “the Well”…?

••• Well, I was right that the Treat skincare boutique was leaving its storefront at Arlington Plaza—it moved into the interior corner space, and its old spot is vacant.

••• And there’s another “for lease” sign at the Ambiance women’s boutique on Coast Village Road. I think it’s closed for good—I was so busy trying to get the photo as we drove by that I didn’t get a look inside, but there’s no mention of the Montecito store on the company’s website (just the San Luis Obispo one), and the phone number doesn’t work. UPDATE 7/5: As you can see from the second photos, Ambiance is not what it used to be.

••• There’s yet another “for lease” sign at SB Liquor & Crafts, which you may still know as Mac’s Grog & Groc, at 501 Anacapa (E. Haley). That’s exactly the kind of lot I was yapping about the other day—the city should find a way to incentivize the owner to develop it with housing rather than let it continue as a waste of downtown space.

••• From Caltrans: “A solar-powered direct current fast-charging electric vehicle charging station has been installed at the Shandon Rest Area near Highway 46 East in San Luis Obispo County, in addition to two stations that were activated last fall at the US 101 Camp Roberts Rest Area in southern Monterey County. […] Charging is free to the public in 30-minute increments. […] Commonly used cables and connectors for electric vehicles are available, and Tesla drivers can also use the stations if they carry an adapter.”

••• The one-bedroom cottage at 68 Eucalyptus Lane is for rent ($8,000 per month, longterm), which is mainly notable because the tenant gains “access to the [Rosewood Miramar Beach’s] family pool, fitness & wellness center, beach service & amenities.” Does the resort own the four-unit compound at 68 Eucalyptus? Or are all homeowners adjacent to the resort allowed access as part of the deal to get it built?
