A UNIQUE RETAIL SHOP IN DOWNTOWN CARPINTERIA
Coastland is a small retail shop located at 768 Linden Ave in beautiful downtown Carpinteria, CA .
Our shop features a collection of handmade, creative local products offered at a fair price.
We are usually open Mon-Sun from 11:00AM -5:00PM.
We’d love to have you stop by and say hello.
Coastland is not just an average retail shop. Coastland is a unique store and place where the community and tourists can purchase locally hand-made products at a fair price while helping local students earn money and learn to run their own business. It’s a win win and something we like to call #retail4good.
Every product we sell in our store is made locally here in Carpinteria. We also try our best to source our raw materials locally whenever possible. We believe it’s important to #shoplocal
Everything in Coastland is created or finished using the best craftsmanship we can. We never buy anything wholesale only to mark it up and resell it. Our hands touch everything we sell.
Students are the heartbeat of Coastland. Every product is made by and for them. 100% of the profits of our sales goes back to our students in the form of scholarship grants. Coastland is committed to #retail4good
NOT JUST RETAIL
Coastland is not just a retail shop. It is so much more. Our little shop is also home to a student maker space where we run an after school youth entrepreneur and business training program called Pathways. Local students who participate in Pathways learn to make the products we sell in the store, and they also learn how to run a business and share the profits in the form of scholarship grants.
Our students make a variety of handmade soaps and bath and body products which fall under the Soap & Supply banner. Students learn craftsmanship necessary for creating soap and body products. They also learn the benefits of natural products for your skin. We think you will love the variety of products in our Soap & Supply line.
Many people make handmade jewelry, but not many people are able to combine the precision of a laser cutter with hand craftsmanship to create unique jewelry designs using sustainable natural woods like bamboo and walnut. Our jewelry designs reflect a modern aesthetic that reflect the geography of the Central Coast.
Using a laser engraver and cutter allows our students to create a variety of unique products that are not found many places. From wooden sunglasses holders to wall plaques, to skateboards, our design section of products bring together creativity and technology to create items that you will be proud to own.
Diffuser Bracelets & Essential Oil Rollers
This month, we’re highlighting our new diffuser bracelets and aroma therapy essential oil rollers. These stylish bracelets look great and diffuse your favorite essential oils while you wear them.
Stop by the shop and check out this unique gift item and the many other handmade products we sell.
Every product in our shop is locally made, by hand, by and for the students of Carpinteria. You can feel good that your purchase is helping support local student artisans who are learning business and entrepreneurial skills.
