"Corners of the World" Gift shop, Palos Verdes California

There is a beautiful little gift shop located in Palos Verdes California called "Corners of the World". The owner, Jurgen Kading is a dear friend of mine. He chooses a wonderful assortment of charming gifts from all over the world to fill his store.  It is especially delightful to be in this cozy store during the winter holidays when trees are full of sparkling ornaments and there is a warm glow throughout the interior.  I am trying to support local shops like Corners of the World, buying my Christmas gifts from local vendors.  I hope you are doing the same.  Here are some photos I took on my fun shopping day in Palos Verdes.

When you visit Corners of the World be sure and go upstairs too. There are so many nice things to look at.
Here is Jurgen with me.  He originally is from Germany but has been in the U.S. now for many years and is proud of his American citizenship.  We met in an Italian class a few years ago.  Our mutual love of Italy is a strong bond between we two and the friends we have made in our italian languages classes.

This shop is located in a quaint area called Malaga Cove Plaza just off Palos Verdes Drive high above the hills overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
My cousin Ann joined me in todays fun shopping adventure.
A few feet away through an arcade walkway we had a lovely lunch in a little cafe in the same area.

Here we are relaxing after a "tough" day of shopping.  What a fun adventure!

Corners of the World is located at:

1 Malaga Cove Plz
Palos Verdes EstatesCA 90274
(310) 373-5096

Just off Palos Verdes Drive North. It is located next door to the Palos Verdes Post Office.  If you go you will not be disappointed. It's great shopping if you are looking for speciality gifts, charming imports and unique items.  I felt like a kid in a candy store, with every turn of my glance a multitude of exciting things to gaze upon.
