Shop with Purpose- Art N Soul on 101 in Encinitas

I discovered a fun store when out and about on the Coast Highway in Encinitas called Art N Soul on 101, and they sell an eclectic mix of art/jewelry/paintings/treasures, all created by local artists. Very fun place! The best part about this store is that it is staffed by all volunteers, and after the artists and the rent are paid, the remainder of all profits go solely to support local charities such as the Community Resource Center, the Store front Shelter, A.R.T.S. and Guitars in the Classroom. The store also gives local artists a unique platform and opportunity to showcase their works. So shop Art N Soul on 101 to both support the artists of your community as well as some great charities. You can find the store on the Coast Hwy, between the big Encinitas sign and the Lumberyard Center. While there, you can find a great mix of shops in the surrounding area, including the new Whole Foods Market.
