Going Coastal

Summer was far too fleeting and we aren't really ready to say goodbye so we're saying hello to the beach motif of Cottage Coastal Store, Inc.

Cottage Coastal, an online home accessories store based in sea-breezy Belvedere, California, has made a splash from Nantucket to Santa Monica with its beach-and-cottage inspired frames, lighting, pillows, mirrors, tableware, throws, wall art and other decorative objects.  Its focus is on quality American handcrafts.

And, even better, Cottage Coastal is diving in to help a non-profit organization make some extra clams by donating a pillow of your choice (click here to see) for your favorite non-profit group's next auction or fundraiser.  Just post its name, tell us all the good it does and the group that is nominated the most, wins. We LOVE this contest.
