Love this shop! Upscale items for your home or for gifts. For gifts I wanted 10 of one particular picture frame. They checked on availability and got back to me promptly. You should know they are very clear that for returns you will be given store credit only, no refunds. Two things: one is that you probably won't need to... More

It is the best shop in town, with an array of eclectic decor and clothing. I bought a silk dress that I absolute adore and my friend found candles that totally match her color decoration scheme.

I bought an expensive pair of pants at Seaside Chic on Feb.13/14 for full price. I didn't wear them for another 15 days, as I had already tried them on and they fit; it was quite warm out and there was no reason to wear them until the 27th. As soon as I put them on, a grommet from the... More

I went to Seaside Chic Boutique last week and bought a lovely dress for my son's beach wedding. I paid full price of $118.00. Today I went there to try to find a scarf and saw my dress on sale for $59.00! Less than half of what I paid. The saleslady was nice until she saw how upset I was,... More

I haven't attempted a return yet--I've loved everything I've purchased but based on the style of boutique I would have guessed their policy would be on par with other small specialty boutiques. And yes, there is a bit of a vibe where I'm thinking I should feel guilty for ??? I can only guess once bitten, twice shy? I hope... More

I had the same experience as flipflopcrazy regarding shoplifting and a similar episode as Judy1250 had involving returns. The store would not let me return a gift from a friend. That's bad enough but there is no way I can tell my friend she wasted her money and warn her not to shop there again. Their policies should be clearly... More

On my first visit to Venice this December, I was very pleasantly surprised by the eclectic and cute block of shops. My favorite, and definitely the most memorable of them of all, is the Seaside Chic home decor/furnishings store on Venice Avenue. Not only does it carry very stylish merchandise which is showcased in an easy organized manner, but the... More

My husband and I visit Venice regularly and I have attempted twice to shop in this store. While they have very nice merchandise and many thinigs I would actually consider purchasing, however the staff in this store have apparently been trained to follow customers around the store and I mean FOLLOW....I felt very uncomfortable the whole time in the store....
