Designer Mark Seamon’s funky gift shop sprang to life in 1997, and while his hand-sewn bags—fashioned from colorful printed canvas and oil cloth—are still a big draw, casual shoppers fall hard for the world traveler’s Haitian and Mexican imports, and Day of the Dead decorations (skulls, faux flowers). Ken Brown postcards cost just a buck, and you’d be hard-pressed to leave without at least one Mark Seamon for Love Shine creation (like a tattooed messenger bag for $52).

As soon as you step in you're eyes just enjoy all the beautiful creations! Lovely handbags in all sizes and patterns. How does one chose? The music is so delightful too ... I'm just in my happy place when I'm in Love Shine٩( ᐛ )و. Your jewelry is sweet too. I still get a chuckle over your card selections.
