It’s all about the mix.

 

Part treasure box, part art gallery, the Bobbie Medlin shop is a delight. French flea market finds, unique jewelry, sculpture, paintings, and even that “perfect gift” are waiting for you. We are also proud to be the Northwest retailer for the French ceramics company, Astier de Villatte.

If you, too, believe it’s all about the mix, come and visit. No matter your budget, we’ve got something for you. You’ll be glad to have us on your list of favorite shops.

Astier de villatte

Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli founded Astier de Villatte in 1996. Following the tradition of the great 18th century Parisian ceramic studios, they employ Tibetan artisans to create their charming, one-of-a-kind ceramics in black terracotta with a milky white glaze.

Lightweight and fragile-looking, the pieces are both strong and durable and wholly unique. They are now one of the last major studios in Paris keeping this tradition alive.

Alongside their ceramics, Astier de Villatte make scented hand care products, incense and candles. 

Our inventory is constantly refreshed. 

Special orders are encouraged.

A 19th century Philippine santo of the Virgin Mary. She waits patiently while I search for the box that contains her carefully wrapped head. Unpacking creates strange vignettes. 

I hope you all have the most wonderful day.❤️

This exquisite still-life looks like a photograph. Painted by Annie Snyder (1852-1927). She was not well known and did not receive acclaim, but there is no doubt she was master of her craft. Being an artist is HARD—for a plethora of reasons. 

Support your local artists. Buy original art.

Saw this fantastic three-piece wooden sculpture at the Santa Barbara Museum and thought it would be great interpreted as an abstract painting. I imagine the artist would politely suggest I keep my day job. I love art museums.❤️

The work of Ernst Nay who studied with and befriended Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky argued that colors had the potential to vibrate the soul. Hmmm…

At Santa Barbara Art Museum.

Cloudy skies today in Santa Barbara, but it still feels like vacation to me. Can’t believe how this trip landed right in the middle of my house move, but I’ll take it. 

Seize the day, friends!
