    gift shop...a charmer

    St. James Gift Shop is a "must see". I learned about it here on VT and decided to look into it for myself. So glad I did. In fact the women were charmed that we have such a site and took our address so they could tune in and see their little plug for the gift shop. The shop is filled with gifts from around the world. I was taken by the jewelry from the southwest, but there were handmade crafts from all 4 corners of the globe. Some quite inexpensive considering the quality. As someone else on VT pointed out, it was nice to be supportive of such a wonderful church, as well. I would recommend it for your gifting or for a crazy southwest necklace such as I bought....with lots of parrots, silver, chilis....you get the idea. :-)

    St. James by the sea is a wonderful place to visit. It's an Episcopal church with Spanish elements in its design, and it occupies a prominent position in the midst of the growing business district in La Jolla. Beautifully cared for, with lovely grounds and a quiet courtyard to sit, rest, and contemplate.

    Classic in its design...as all Episcopalian churches seem to be..... this was a pleasant and cool stop to make in mid afternoon. They hold daily services...even weekday noon time. Very unusual, I would say. I didn't get all the history of the church, but its architecture with its Spanish influence told me that it has probably been a mainstay in La Jolla for a very long time.

    I love thsi Beautiful Episcopal church with a Californian-spanish style is really pretty, I love to walk here and enjoy the shadow from the trees, the fountain and view. There's a little shop that I always found closed for some reason, well some day I will enter.

    The instinct is to just gaze at the front of the church, but this charming cast-iron fountain is not to be ignored. Behind it you can see the La Jolla branch of MCASD.
