Shopper’s Diary: Scout in Santa Barbara

December 1, 2017

Newly opened in Santa Barbara, California: Scout Uncommon Goods, an eclectic antiques and vintage shop from a mother-daughter team. Contemporary art gallerist Edie Caldwell (who formerly had shops and galleries in San Francisco, Sausalito, and Rockport, Maine) and her 28-year-old daughter Meredith Shank, who started collecting antiques when she moved to Los Angeles after college, “decided to combine forces and brought their skill sets together to create Scout,” the duo says. The result is a gallery-like space with one-of-a-kind finds. Here’s a look inside.

N.B.: Scout has now moved to 4 East Yanonali Street; visit them there.
