Santa Paula Welcomes Four New Retail Stores Downtown

By Sheryl Hamlin

Spring is here and shopping is in the air! Santa Paula’s historic downtown recently welcomed four new retail stores:

  • Santa Paula Trading Company
  • Lily Fields Vintage
  • Sparrow’s Nest Market
  • Italienne Salon


Santa Paula Trading Company

Santa Paula Trading Company owners Sierra and Chris Hall are no strangers to the area, having founded the Catalyst Church nine years ago and now Catalyst Church Preschool.

Santa Paula Trading Company features new and pre-owned merchandise from well known brands. Chris Hall explained to me that the model follows other successful resale companies like Buffalo Exchange, where customers are paid on the spot for clothes as a function of the brand. Previously used as a dance studio, the store’s wood floors provide a perfect backdrop for the rustic rugs and displays found around the showroom. A black t-shirt, shown on Chris Hall, featuring the store’s sophisticated logo was a popular item opening weekend.

Lily Fields Vintage

Owner Donna McClure, a Santa Paula resident, creates refurbished furniture using Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. She also sells the paint and holds workshops. She augments the eclectic nature of the store with collectibles, flowers and soaps. The website may be reached here. The owner explained that her background in the construction industry providing design consulting to homebuilders transfers to her new business seamlessly.

Sparrow’s Nest Market

Sparrow’s Nest Market is co-located at 110 Mill Street. Owner Kathy Odle explained that her large collection of grandchildren developed her interest in the adorable children’s clothing she sells. She also has some gossamer dresses for ladies shown in the window. This could be just the site for the perfect Easter outing attire. Connect with the proprietors on Facebook here.

Itallienne Salon

Entering the Italienne Salon, one is wrapped in a feeling of calm and quiet reminiscent of upscale stores in major cities. The lighting is soft and subtle, as are the voices. There are four hair stations plus a massage room, a clothing boutique and a makeup center where the Aveda cosmetics are tried and sold. This is full service beauty. The owner is Lourdes Saucedo who can be found here on Facebook and at 925 E Main in Santa Paula.
