What's a WINNOW?

The term originates from the process of separating the usable portion of the wheat kernel from the not so useful straw and chaff. The folks at WINNOW Gallery & Goods have cleverly integrated this concept into a Home Boutique filled with "usable" home goods and original art.

My introduction to this lovely boutique just off of PCH & Tustin Avenue in Newport Beach just happened to coincide with an artists reception which meant a full house of fans and faithful customers. I can see why devotees have made WINNOW their go-to place for gifts and the occasional self indulgence. Owners Linda, Brad, and Jamie could not have been more pleasant and before I knew it I had a glass of wine in one hand and a few unique finds in the other.

Some of my favorite finds: MUD Australian Dinnerware, Hand Made Soaps, Colorful Canvas Totes, Garden Accessories, and one of a kind Vintage Items. This is one of those places that you don't want to tell your friends about because all future gifts will come from here, then upon further consideration you realize that "sharing" this gem of a boutique is the responsible thing to do.

Do the right thing... share and enjoy.
