    Shops at Big Sur

    Several shops catering to tourists are located along Highway One. In addition to the usual tourist trinkets, you will find some nice artwork and a few items left over from the era when the town was infiltrated by hippies, such as tie-dye baby socks. A general store offers more practical groceries and outdoor goods.

    Spirit Gardens, right off Highway 101, has some absolutly wonderful arts and crafts with a hinduism, very spiritual theme to them. The vibe is very peaceful and casual. Stroll a garden path and check out all the wonderful crafts, all situalted outside in a wonderful plant life setting. There is also a outdoor stage for plays, poetry readings, folk music, and every entertainment venue linked to the bohemian lifestyle.

    Heart Beat or The Phoenix: Treasures to be had.

    by cheydakiss Written Feb 16, 2005

    Heart Beat offers everything from,Jewlery to mucial instuments,books,music,clothes,and if you go to The Phoenix,step out onto the back Patio,for a surreal experience,the many wind chines,swaying to the pacific ocean winds.

    What to buy: Of course,anything that say's Big Sur,with the famous Racoons,and Otters. And what I always buy,silly as it sounds,is the Campfire memories,small incense,that evoke smells around that campfire.

    What to pay: 20-25.00 will take home many nice memories.
