Our Story

What's in a Name...

The name West of Camden is a nod to London's famous Camden Market. A downtown city market that features stalls of art, music, food and of course, fashion. It embodies both the entrepreneurial and artistic spirit in a gritty street way. Combined with our laid-back beach attitude, the brand West of Camden is our take on that spirit, creating our own "Street Meets Beach" lifestyle aesthetic.

In the beginning there was a kiosk...

Holiday season 2012, a 50 square foot kiosk pop-up opened its roll top door with the name 'West of Camden' newly printed on the plexiglass marker.  From that day on we have offered our own original in-house designs along with select vendors that fell in line with our concept.  The pop-up era was the beginning of a much larger idea that manifested out of several conversations the summer before.  However, that idea did not truly start taking form until we spent a full year doing pop-ups throughout southern california at almost any art show, special event and vendor showcase that would allow us to setup.

As of today...

West of Camden currently has two real world locations (Huntington Beach & San Diego) and this online store. We have worked hard to bring you the brands we love, local artists/designers and our own in-house originals.  Every sale we make still brings a smile to our faces as it did that first day we opened our pop-up kiosk in 2012.  

We hope you join us on our journey as we continue to grow.
Follow along.
