Our newest cornerstone bricks-and-mortar retail concept store will open in 2013, at the heart of El Dorado Hills Town Center, 4357 Town Center Blvd, El Dorado Hills, CA; just north of Folsom, CA and South of Lake Tahoe by about 50 miles. We sell designer jewelry and accessories in one half of the store and great stuff for guys in the other half, which is fondly known as the "Man Cave", including leather goods, watches, vintage guitars, and more. Our gemologist and appraiser has a lab in the middle of the store, and there's an area that is where kids hang out by day that becomes an impromptu performance stage in the evening.
More Talisman Collection stores will follow along the coastline of California. We just found a really cute space in Cambria, near Moonstone Beach, for our second location, and hope to be in Malibu Country Mart in spring of 2015 with our third Talisman Collection location.
Folsom and El Dorado Hills (aka "EDH"), are in the heart of California's Gold Country. Literally. We offer to take our designers to pan for gold when they visit. Nearby Sutter Mill in Coloma is where the first world-class gold rush of 1849 took place. (Hence, the San Francisco '49ers name). We enjoy the gorgeous local wine regions of El Dorado and Fairplay, right nearby, in our micro-climate temperate weather, similar to the weather in the hills of Tuscany.
Home to Aerojet, Intel, Cisco, California Blue Cross, Nimbus Salmon Hatchery, Geikkikan Sake, and a lot of vineyards, houses, farms, mines and lots of visually rich geography that is seen in photos by masters including Ansel Adams, our region is the middle-point in between Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe and Sacramento; about an hour from each. Roughly 40 miles northeast of Sacramento. Approximately two hours from San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
And yes, there is a CA state prison in Folsom. And yes, Johnny Cash wrote a
song about it. And sang it there. And yes, we're happy to show it to you.
We proudly love our first store location in El Dorado Hills Town Center, among the Sierra Nevada foothills, There's so much heart in our community. Small town American tradition with panache and attention for details. Colossal olive trees border our local lake, where rainbows literally shine almost every day on the waterfront. Nearby the American River Canyon, Talisman Collection is a beautiful bike ride to Folsom Lake, and the majestic Folsom Dam. A gorgeous setting with rich geography, artwork and amazing weather. The bluest of skies. A haven for photographers, writers, wine growers, miners, tech people, music recording studios, film-makers and creative, interesting, nice people.
You're going to love it. We can't wait to see you. Thank you for reading this. We love you!!!
