Rose Ave's Golden State Store Relocates To Lincoln
The Golden State Store's owner and designer Stephanie Stuart describes her lifestyle shop as a California road trip, going from local surf and skate culture in Venice to camp vibes inspired by family adventures in Lone Pine, so when she relocated after five years on Rose Ave. to a new space on Lincoln Blvd. it could not be more fitting, an official stop along CA Route 1, the Pacific Coast Highway, which tracks the Cali coast from L.A. to the cliff-hugging whips around Big Sur, all the way north of wine country.
Books, candles, home goods and apparel stocked inside the eclectic boutique tell the stories of local artists from here to there, and Stuart plans to incorporate more of her own tees and casual wear soon under her new label Star 31 (as in the 31st star on the American flag—that's us!), as well as more for Golden State Kids.
Behind the shop, an open dirt lot will be converted into a picnic area with edible gardens shared with the restaurant, and local culinary gardener Courtney Guerra is planning the vertical veg that'll soon take root. Stuart plans to use the outdoor space for kid- and grown-up friendly camp-style activities this summer including indigo-dyeing workshops.
Following shifts and changes happening along Rose Ave., Stuart says that her new location and the collaborative energy between Superba Food & Bread owners Paul Hibler and Tiffany Rochelle, who also own and lease several more spaces located around Superba Ave., could not be more ideal or have come at a better time. The Cali stars aligned, and a grand opening party will be announced soon.
