First we'll start in this room:
and work our way over to the vintage hutch for interesting trims. Are you hearing this music by the way? Perfect ambiance.
We'll head over here next:

and all sorts of sewing candy for you to take in.
You will easily be sucked in to the Maisonette charm. Believe me, it's addictive. And here's why....
Maisonette is a boutique shop, housed in an old 1924 bungalow, and located right near the beach in Oceanside, California (and virtually on their site too). Mmmm. Dreamy.
It's run by Ava and her two daughters. Natalie is the photographer and Madeline is the seamstress. And together, the three woman have created a complete oasis for sewers or anyone with a creative flair. Maisonette can be summed up in one word: charming.
