Coast Village Association’s Inaugural Shop Local Event to Feature More Than 30 Merchants

The Coast Village Association has announced a special Shop Local event along Coast Village Road scheduled for Dec. 14. More than 30 merchants in Montecito’s lower village will offer special savings and incentives during the inaugural event, which runs from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“The Shop Local event is a great way to encourage the patronization of these local businesses, which keep our street lively and vibrant,” CVA Executive Director Sharon Byrne said.

Participating businesses will include Allora by Laura, Angel, Antoinette, ARA 24K Collection, Blanka Boutique, Calcagno & Hamilton, Cava, Civilianaire, CO Collection, Cos Bar, Daniel Gibbings, The Four Seasons Biltmore, The Gallery Montecito, George Pet Shop, Here’s the Scoop, Kathryne Designs, Kendall Conrad, K.Frank, Legacy, Letter Perfect, Lily, Liquor & Wine Grotto, Maison K, Menelli Trading Company, Montecito Deli, Nurture Cottage, Peregrine Galleries, Portico Fine Art, Read ‘N’ Post, Richie’s, Silverhorn, Viva Oliva and Whistle Club.

In addition to special discounts, gifts with purchase, and raffle items, many businesses will serve refreshments, with several also offering musical entertainment.

“It will be a great evening to be on the road for some shopping, mingling and enjoying the season,” Byrne said.

Santa Claus also will make an appearance; real estate company Calcagno & Hamilton (between The Honor Bar and Jeannine’s) will host Santa for a special photo opportunity, along with cookies and hot chocolate.

Since its resurgence late last year, the Coast Village Association, led by Byrne, board president Bob Ludwick and a nine-member board of directors, has gotten involved in various issues related to Coast Village Road. In addition to hosting and sponsoring special events, the CVA is working closely with the City of Santa Barbara to evaluate parking and traffic issues along Coast Village, as well as plan beautification projects in the street medians and roundabout.

“We are dedicated to making a significant difference along the road,” Ludwick said.

The volunteer group also is working on revamping its website; updates will be available in the coming weeks at

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!
