Sarah Anticouni, a 5th generation Santa Barbaran, has been in business two years and in her current location for one. It has been a long-standing family tradition to own a business in Santa Barbara and a dream of hers to continue that legacy. In fact, Ms. Anticouni’s Grandmother, Gladys Tevis, was in the clothing business on the very same block for more than fifty years. Today, after years of saving, Ms. Anticouni has reached that goal and is living her dream.
A Grand Opening Celebration is scheduled for First Thursday, April 5, starting at 5:00 p.m. There will be a free raffle with great prizes and tasty surprises during the exciting Grand Opening event.
My Sweet Pineapple features new designer clothes plus top quality consignment items. The store offers clothing from newborns to adults and all clothing brought in for credit is put through a diligent cleaning process; garments are inspected twice, washed, ironed, and then steamed. “My Sweet Pineapple is a stylish new and used clothing boutique featuring Santa Barbara’s best selection of new and gently loved clothing,” says Anticouni.
My Sweet Pineapple also features handcrafted items from Cookie Pie, who makes beautiful, handmade children’s clothing from vintage fabric, and Funky Dumpling, a very special line handmade in Santa Barbara.
In addition to clothing and accessories, My Sweet Pineapple also offers an excellent selection of candies and sweets. In stock are sixteen flavors of taffy and dozens of different kinds of gummy, peanut-buttery, and chocolaty treats. Pick your own or have a beautiful custom gift basket created for you on any budget.
Finally, My Sweet Pineapple now has a Party Room for birthday parties, baby showers or ‘mommy and me’ type groups.
Inspiration for the success of this family-owned and operated business also comes from the new 6th generation, Ms. Anticouni’s eighteen-month-old daughter Madilyn.
My Sweet Pineapple is located at 1329 State St. in Santa Barbara and at www.mysweetpineapple.com.
