There are so many wonderful things about living in Laguna, and of course, the adorable shops and boutiques are some of my favorites. Maybe I will eventually write a post about every single one of these finds, but for now, I will focus on this sweet little shop my dear friend and I discovered while doing a neighborly walk around town: Buy Hand.
The store has been in existence since 2012 but I only just noticed it when it moved to its newest location in the HIP district earlier this month. Owned by two sisters originally from Canada but now live in Laguna, this shop specializes in gifts and jewelry handcrafted in the USA and around the world – a trove of one-of-a-kind treasures for the home, body and soul, with a focus on global fair trade items. I really enjoyed meeting Vidya, one of the sisters, and was inspired by her passion for providing unique, handmade items that support local artisans but also our Laguna community.

The store is fantastic, but there is also a magnificent patio outside those doors that is a peaceful oasis.
The baby stuff is adorable!
I had to buy one of these candles for my office. It is a true unique purchase! The candlemaker, a local, created this scent just for Buy Hand, and it smells heavenly!
Yoga tanks made from a local Laguna artist. I already own one that I bought from her directly when she was at the Sawdust Festival, but my friend bought several here. The material is softer than a pillow.
The beach is my happy place!
