Store Spotlight - Cameron Marks Boutique

cameronmarks_logo-blogCameron Marks is a finely curated boutique of fashion and accessories located in beautiful Santa Cruz, CA. We recently created a custom Santa Cruz Maptote for their store and loved working with owner Vanessa Ambrose. Whether you are looking for the next trend or a timeless piece, Cameron Marks is the place to find it! Read more about Vanessa and the boutique below:

Q: Who are the owners/operators and when did your store open?

A: My name is Vanessa Ambrose and I opened Cameron Marks in 2005… A self-described designer, art, and fashion junkie… I moved from my hometown in Australia to Santa Cruz, CA in 1998 after a backpacking trip across Europe and through Morocco. After almost ten years, Cameron Marks has now grown to include an eclectic gift store, as well as a finely curated designer clothing boutique.

CM2pic1-blogQ: How would you describe your store aesthetic?

A: Both Cameron Marks Boutiques are housed in a converted Brussels sprout packing factory, which makes for a striking contrast! I love mixing all things modern, minimal, contemporary, and timeless. In both stores, we carry a little bit of somethin’ for everyone… Over the years, we have been able to piece together some really incredible collections that make for a unique and distinct point of view.

IMG_7910-2-blogQ: Tell us about your city/neighborhood. Why do you love it?

A: Santa Cruz is an amazing little surfer town with tons of history. It’s slowly growing to become quite a ‘hip’ place to live — with great cafes, gorgeous parks, and a budding restaurant scene. We are located on the West Side of Santa Cruz, right near the ocean. It’s a wonderfully tight-nit town with laid back friendly people.

Q: What blogs/magazines do you follow?

A: Here at Cameron Marks, we are always reading tons of blogs! It’s important to us that we are on top of all the trends… Emmas DesignBlogg, based in Sweden, is at the top of my list for interior inspiration with a cool Scandinavian spin. I also like The Satorialist, Refinery29, Garance Dore, and The Penny Rose (a great local fashion blog!). As far as magazines, I love the Australian fashion magazine Russh, as well as Darling Magazine. A flawlessly printed publication with wonderfully written articles… I love the mag so much, we now stock Darling at Cameron Marks.

cameronmarks_4-blogQ: What’s next for you/your store? Any upcoming sales/events?

A: At Cameron Marks, we are all about expanding and growing! We are hoping to launch an online store within the next few months… We are also in the beginning stages of preparing for our annual ‘Indian Summer’ party. Every September, we throw a massive bash in the courtyard where our stores reside…..Everyone’s invited…. xx.
