Happy Holidays, From The Presidio Motel
State Street’s Hippest Lodge Hosts Second Annual Deck the Halls Pop-Up Mall
Tuesday, November 29, 2011
Since reopening its doors in 2008, the Presidio Motel has become Santa Barbara’s resident beacon of cool. Under the helm of proprietors Chris Sewell and Kenny Osehan, the little State Street 17-roomer now consistently plays host to all walks of tourists, whether they be young businessmen or touring bands looking for a place to lay their heads. And with the 2010 opening of their in-house shop, The Supply Room, the motel has also become S.B.’s go-to stop for sweet local and otherwise ungettable goods. (Think swoon-worthy Rachel Comey boots, delectable Tartine candles, and gorgeous leather pieces from S.B. master Makesmith.)
All praise aside (and they’re getting plenty, including some sweet ink in a recent Sunday issue of the New York Times), its Sewell and Osehan’s great taste and love of a good time that keeps people coming back. It’s also why we’re more stoked than ever for their second annual holiday shopping soirée. This Saturday, December 3, the Presidio Motel opens shop on Deck the Halls Version 2.0, a one-stop pop-up-mall-cum-party that’s sure to become one S.B.’s best new holiday traditions.
And as those who turned out last year can attest, it’s nearly impossible not to have a good time. “It’s so exciting to see all these independent businesses coming out of the woodwork,” said Osehan. “We both just really love the energy that comes together when the whole community gets involved in something. It’s really inspiring.” In other words, come with your shopping lists in hand, and don’t be surprised when you leave with just as much loot for yourself as you do for your loved ones.
