Customers have been buying from CovenTree Books and Gifts for years, but now the local business has a physical location for shoppers.
Co-owner Elizabeth Acosta said having a bricks-and-mortar location has been a longtime dream for her. The shop opened in January, but previously she set up shop each Christmas season for six weeks in the mall.
On Thursday, the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors welcomed CovenTree into the chamber organization with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The shop is located at 722 E. Main St.
CovenTree has a decidely metaphysical bent with its wide variety of multicultural offerings. There is an abundance of statuary, jewelry, art, toys, books and more.
The shop features unique creations from local artists, as well as books by local authors. Acosta describes the variety in the video below.
