Paso Robles
Bijou brings a classic yet eclectic style to the coast
 The boutique for statement pieces from around the world
Located just steps away from the cozy downtown Paso Robles park, Bijou is an elegant boutique where shoppers can spend hours looking at handmade jewelry, try- ing on stylish clothing, or choosing a thoughtful gift.

clips, and shoes that are the perfect complement to any Bijou outfit. Two notable items include “hand embroidered headbands from India and jewelry made from vintage horse medallions that are incredibly unique and one of a kind pieces,” according to Burns.
“I’m really into packaging and details of how a product is pre- sented. Our customers love coming in for the visuals of our displays and unique offerings,” Burns said.
There is also a wide range of Eu- ropean handmade toys for children,
which are a local favor- ite, candles, body lotion, baby cloth- ing, decora- tive pillows, and more for those looking to spruce up the house or find a gift for a friend.
“We are really vested
in the local
community and make sure we can contribute
to as many fundraisers as pos- sible. This is our way of thanking everybody for supporting us and allowing us to keep our doors open!” said Burns, adding that
“all the small businesses really appreciate the locals and thank them for supporting us during COVID and beyond. It has been
a challenging couple of years and most of us pulled through relatively unscathed.”

6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (805) 296-3833 or visit

 “After being in the floral and event design business for 15 plus years, I was burned out and had
a yearning to go back into retail.
I had previously worked for a designer in London with A list clients and I basically wanted to create an extension of my wardrobe and home to other women,” said Burns, who was born in Sweden and has lived in various places, such as South Africa and England, a lifestyle that influences the wide variety of items at Bijou that were created across the world.
From closet
staples to true
stand out pieces,
Bijou carries the
latest in fashion.
Just a handful of
brands found at
Bijou include Tart,
Cosabella, Free
People, Sanctuary and more, with Burns noting that “we consistently have a great selection of basics
such as tees, tanks, and lingerie.”
In terms of accessories, there is an abundance of handbags, dainty hair
