Once upon a time, an Aussie boy and a SoCal girl met-up in the big apple, fell in love and got married. However, it had always been a dream of hers to open a store inside an old house. So after one successful restaurant and beautiful daughter Lily were both in the picture, it was then that Lori’s friend called to tell her that the charming craftsman on Pier Avenue—a house Lori had always loved—was for sale in Hermosa Beach, Ca. It was truly meant to be, and within weeks, Will, Lori and Lily were moving across the country to open Gum Tree. In the summer of 2011, little Will was born and now they’re a happy family of four, plus lots and lots of animals.

I mean… is that the best story EVER!?! You know what’s also the best…? @gumtree_la and the @gumtreecafe I had read about Gum Tree and I knew that Lori and Will were more than deserving of our @ny_now 10 to Watch award so I was super excited when I was out in the LA area and could actually visit! I mean, it was so great – café and store – that we went back and back and back!

Gum Tree is a one of a kind style that that crosses all categories and allows us to recreate this incredibly Cali Cool vibe in our own abodes. They have all the smells and all the feels with all the love and cuddles for all ages. With instore events and highlighting their Makers, Gum Tree is more than a store, but a vibrant community. After your shopping adventures, go grab a cappuccino and avocado toast on buckwheat with chili flakes… the menu at the Gum Tree café is awesome and offers creative dishes with an Aussie flare in a dog-friendly location near the beach. 🐶🌅
