Lost Horizon Finds New Home

Bucking the trend of bookstores closing, our rarefied enclave has welcomed another bibliophile bastion, Lost Horizon, to our Eden by the Beach.

Owners Jerry Jacobs and Angela Perko have set up shop on San Ysidro Road, just a tiara’s toss from Richard Gunner‘s development, sharing store space with friend Diane Stewart‘s fine art store.

Lost Horizon was formerly on Anacapa Street, just yards from the News-Press, for 35 years until it lost its lease on the death of the landlord.

“We have a little less book space now, so we no longer carry paperbacks, but we have more art books than ever,” says Angela.

“Diane opened her first gallery in 1986 in San Diego and was in Palm Springs for more than twenty years, opening in Santa Barbara in 2012. The Montecito location is perfect for both our businesses.

“We are bucking the trend and embarking on a new adventure. Anyone our age would have retired.”

I wish the dynamic duo all success…
