Happy Tuesday ladies and gents! A few weeks ago, I was hanging out with two gems that I’m lucky enough to call best friends and one of them mentioned a place called Daydream Surf Shop.
I wasn’t sure what it was but I thought to myself, “Hey, if it’s called Daydream it must be pretty rad, right?” And I wasn’t wrong, I’ll tell ya that.
Nestled in the heart of Newport, Daydream Surf Shop is pretty much what it sounds like – a space so cute it’s practically a day dream.
The space is simply an open-floor planned room with cement floors, white walls, delicious coffee and good vibes.
You walk in and see surfboards lining the walls, lights handing across the ceiling, and vintage goodies on display from local brands and emerging artists.
There are handmade crafts, trendy clothing, new and old records, books to read, couches to lounge on and unique coffee to sip on while you do it. Plus, they even have the cutest little pug roaming the store to keep you company.
The shop is located in the middle of an industrial park which isn’t normally the type of area you’d find such a unique little shop. In fact, when I pulled up, I was almost 100% sure I was at the wrong place.
But the shops random location almost added to its cool factor. Since it’s not located at your typical mall or main street, it’s never overcrowded – making it the perfect place to relax and get your afternoon pick-me-up.
So next time you’re in the mood to drink some coffee in a surfers paradise, head down to Daydream. Maybe I’ll even see you there! 😉
