Chad's Insider Guide to Laguna Beach

brass tack Laguna beach california

Laguna is known for many things (enter reality TV, tourist heaven, gorgeous beaches), but this is my insider's tour of the beachside gem I've called home for the past 6 years. 

I'll be updating my guide with a new, local spot each month -- my bar starts with good people and a stellar atmosphere.. 

No. 1 / BRASS TACK

No better place to BEGIN than my favorite (somewhat) off-the-beaten-path home store, Brass Tack.  Here's a quick low down of the hippest home store on the block, with founder, owner and curator, Melissa Kanarek.

 The entire front of the store is dedicated to original home goods, while one-off vintage apparel and indie brands can be found in the back of the store.
