Love & Hidden Treasures in Topanga Canyon

 It was great to be with the kiddos and grandkiddos on their turf for a change.  While in Los Angeles visiting my sweet new Russi*n granddaughter, we drove to Topanga Canyon to a horse farm where Ali and Beth joined a homeschooling group to ride horses and get to know them for their gentle and healing qualities.  I loved it in the Canyon.  So peaceful and beautiful!  The 'Love' sign and vibe here brought me back to the 70's!

Her bonding with Mommy and Papa has gone extremely well in the first month and such a blessing to see such love among the three of them already.  Ali recently told one of her Russi*n teachers that
'she has a mommy and daddy now'.  She's one lucky little girl and so are her parents.

While in Topanga Canyon we passed the cutest place and couldn't resist turning around!

It went on forever with a lot of outdoor space.  The beauty of southern California!

  'Petticoat Junction!'

The stone wave sculpture at the bottom of pic would have come home with me had it not been so heavy!

It looked like Hidden Treasures has been around since the 70's and had EVERYTHING from Victorian to Early Cowboy to Elvis and Marilyn and of course the fabulous Hippie era!

 Ali had a blast with the vintage sunglasses.  Too bad we left those heart ones behind!

If you ever find yourself on the twisting canyon roads of Topanga, look for Hidden Treasures.  It was delightful!

It looks like a fabulous place to visit...I've never been to the canyons either, so I really enjoyed these pictures.

What a sweet family you have, Roberta! :-)

Hi, Roberta! I've been to Hidden Treasures and love it! So ecclectic and wonderful. Like visiting a different era. Even my husband finds the place intriguing. I visited HT years ago when the owner's mother was alive. She was very elderly and roamed the shop wearing her furs, pearls, and a mix of vintage clothing. She also had an old shop dog who stayed by her side. Both have since passed on, but they leave behind a wonderful ripple. Thanks for this post. It reminds me to shop there again soon.
