My Sweet Pineapple Consignment Boutique to Mark 2 Years with Grand Opening

The State Street store will celebrate during First Thursday on April 5

The pineapple is a sign of friendliness and hospitality. It is no surprise then that My Sweet Pineapple, a newborn-to-adult consignment boutique at 1329 State St. in Santa Barbara, embodies those same attributes.

Sarah Anticouni, a fifth-generation Santa Barbaran, has been in business for two years and in her current location for one. It has been a long-standing family tradition to own a business in Santa Barbara and a dream of hers to continue that legacy. In fact, Anticouni’s grandmother, Gladys Tevis, was in the clothing business on the very same block for more than 50 years. Today, after years of saving, Anticouni has reached that goal and is living her dream.

A grand opening celebration is scheduled for First Thursday, April 5, starting at 5 p.m. There will be a free raffle with great prizes and tasty surprises during the grand opening event.

My Sweet Pineapple features new designer clothes plus top-quality consignment items. The store offers clothing from newborns to adults, and all clothing brought in for credit is put through a diligent cleaning process; garments are inspected twice, washed, ironed and then steamed.

“My Sweet Pineapple is a stylish new and used clothing boutique featuring Santa Barbara’s best selection of new and gently loved clothing,” Anticouni said.

My Sweet Pineapple also features handcrafted items from Cookie Pie, which makes beautiful, handmade children’s clothing from vintage fabric, and Funky Dumpling, a very special line handmade in Santa Barbara.

In addition to clothing and accessories, My Sweet Pineapple also offers an excellent selection of candies and sweets. In stock are 16 flavors of taffy and dozens of different kinds of gummy, peanut-buttery and chocolaty treats. Pick your own or have a beautiful custom gift basket created for you on any budget.

Finally, My Sweet Pineapple now has a Party Room for birthday parties, baby showers or “mommy and me”-type groups.

Inspiration for the success of this family-owned and operated business also comes from the new sixth generation, Anticouni’s 18-month-old daughter, Madilyn.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
