"Roxanne's Story"

In 1981, Roxanne Barbieri founded a great little shop, "The Treasure Hunt", first in the living room of her house, and moving in 1982 to 919 Maple Avenue, in Carpinteria, CA.The original shop was only about 500 square feet, but grew quickly to occupy nearly 4000 square feet.

After 25 years of extraordinary service in the quilting, knitting, gift and craft industry, Roxanne sold the business and moved on to pursue other creative endeavors. The new owner enjoyed the shop for several years before deciding to close.

In July, of 2011 Roxanne made the decision to open a new shop,"Roxanne's, A Wish and A Dream", at the same location. The building was still owned by the Barbieri's, and the decision to remodel, refurbish and update made it an exciting family project. Of course, the new shop would still have all Roxanne's favorite things from the original store, quilting, knitting, needlework, and gifts, but adding more art and creative inspirations.

The new shop is a "Must See" work of art. Everything is new, inside and out. It is bright, cheery and fun.

Some of My Favorites

Here is a quilt I did about myself! It was fun to make and decorate with things I love! I think everyone should make a quilt about themselves! But really, don't all the quilts we make have a piece of us in them?
A little quilt hangs on the door to my office. It says," Your Heart, Give it to Someone."
