The Mermaid's Mercantile is held in the side yard of Out Of The Blue, a very cute shop in Solana Beach, owned by Debi Beard.
The fabulous Deb Hodge was there with her equally fabulous belts. And just so you know, these belts caused a near riot in Arizona earlier this month. They sell as soon as she makes them!
Her ever popular 'faith' belt, embellished with beaded trim.
The latest denim craze, the slouchy boyfriend jeans, altered as only Deb does it.
New styles of belts.
Perfect for the beach!
Another 'faith' style.
Custom designed for Debi by Deb.

I took 75 pictures yesterday, so there is lots more to share. Tomorrow I'll feature the actual shop, Out of The Blue. You don't want to miss it. It may just be the cutest shop ever! And I do mean EVER!!!

Those belts are really fantastic! I hope to make it to that shop someday...but it's hard to find the time when you have one yourself. It will probably be in January before we can get there. Matildas Mouse i our next trip on the 11th. Let us know if you need any of your pillows for Artisans!

What a fabulous name....The Mermaid Mercantile! And those belts are so unique and so beautiful. If I was younger I'd have to have one but I can't seem to find my waist anymore!!
