The Alessaro story
…began on a 2500 mile road trip! Along the way, I toured a stunning church and bought keepsakes. As a seasoned gift buyer in Santa Barbara of 19 years, I had an idea - to create the Santa Barbara Mission as an ornament. Nineteen years later, and after an exhaustive search for a quality hand-made product that rivals any piece of art, our dream has come true.
