E N C A N T O is a Santa Barbara lifestyle store, specializing in classic, yet elegant women’s clothing, jewelry, gifts and decorative accessories for the home. Each item has been carefully curated by the owner, award-winning interior designer Christy Martin.
Christy Martin’s lifestyle boutique has been a valuable addition to Santa Barbara’s historic La Arcada courtyard in downtown Santa Barbara. The studio is footsteps from the Santa Barbara Art Museum, which makes it easy to stop in to peruse the latest finds from Christy’s travels to Turkey, Greece, Italy and unique items made in the United States.
Hand knit alpaca scarves and sweater coats from Peru are paired with Pakistani linen embroidered kurtis and are part of the large selection of ever changing women’s clothing items available at ENCANTO.
Hand-embroidered tunics from Pakistan and India are just some of the fair trade items. Luxe Italian cashmere scarves are perched on vintage Peruvian leather arm chairs.
Unique home accessories include a rustic sconce made from oyster shells and multipurpose zinc baskets from Syria.
Designed by a Greek jeweler, these stunning green amethyst wrapped in 24 K gold earrings and opulent moonstone with fresh water pearl earrings are stunning examples of the COUTURE JEWELRY COLLECTION available at E N C A N T O.
The BRIDGE JEWELRY COLLECTION at E N C A N T O includes high style, but reasonably priced items such as these cuffs and a chain necklace by an LA based French designer who adds Swarovski crystals to brass and vermeil.
A shop favorite: handmade soap from Syria, made from a centuries old recipe of olive oil and laurel.

Each first Thursday of the month (during the Santa Barbara Downtown Art Walk), ENCANTO hosts a trunk show featuring jewelry, clothing, art — or whatever strikes their fancy.
