With my little cousin in town, we are trying to get out and do more things. Last Sunday, we took my cousin and her friend to downtown Santa Barbara. Our downtown is very tourist-y and has tons of great, non-chain stores. One store that I have been wanting to check out for a long time is Hampstead Village. It is owned by the mom of someone I grew up with, and it carries British items. Since my trip to Europe over 10 years ago, I have been in love with British chocolate and food! So needless to say, I was very excited to finally visit this shop.
The other item in the above picture is Maltesers. I think these are my favorite candy! The closest American candy I can compare them to is Whoppers, except Maltesers have a honeycomb center. And of course, the chocolate is way better than American chocolate!
I was completely impressed by Angela's selection of goods. She had books, tea, jams, socks, cookbooks and more. Everything was also very reasonably priced. I can't wait to go back and buy more items!
I am only posting about this store because I want to help promote it. I wasn't compensated or discounted or anything.
