Imagine all of the cute notebooks, unicorns and trinkets that you’ve ever pinned on Pinterest being in one store. Pigment, a store in San Diego, is the most adorable little gift shop boutique I’ve ever been in. I honestly could’ve spent hours in Pigment had my boyfriend not carried me out. It is located in the neighborhood of North Park, near a bunch of other shops and restaurants in San Diego.
Sooo… Pigment… It’s seriously the most Pinterest perfect store. They carry products from local artists and crafters, which I am in total support of. I would say they specialize in cute notebooks, DIY books, planners, greeting cards, and other stationary. But they also carry other products, like blankets, designer chairs, fur rugs and other stuff for the home. There is also an entire section for guys. I’m thankful for this section, because its means my boyfriend actually likes shopping here too. One of my favorite parts of the boutique is the succulent section where you can create your own succulent + pot combinations. The entire shop is reasonably priced, so there’s basically no reason not to loveeee itttt.
It is usually always crowded (every time I’ve been), so I definitely recommend going not on a weekend and not at peak hours (like midday). If you can’t visit the physical store itself, they also have items for sale on their website here.
I definitely recommend Encontro North Park right down the block if you want to grab a bite to eat after shopping. They serve really good American food AND it’s dog friendly. They also have a doggie menu. My puppy loved the “Pupp Patty.” He devoured it in like .05 seconds.
Unfortunately the tripod got cropped out, but this lounge section is actually a “photo-op” area.
Comfy cozy chairs.
Ban.do mugs are some of my favorites.
Definitely coming here the next time I need to buy wrapping paper.
This holiday card with a flamingo in a tropical snow globe is so California-esque.
These little owls are so fun!!
The large selection of succulents in the DIY section.
How cute is this mermaid candle?!
Loving this natural succulent wall outside of the store!
Huge wall decor.
Even the checkout counter is so cute!
