Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

The Bee's guide to events, activities, arts and entertainment

Open the trunks


Rebecca Taylor is one of my favorite designers, so if my hair appointment gets done early Saturday, I'm going to try and stop by Serendipity Boutique on H Street (5362, next to Selland's Market) and check out the store's fall trunk show.

Owner Barbara Lym is sure to have picked the cream of the crop for next season. I'm particularly interested in both dresses and jackets - two of Rebecca's specialities.

And, if you can make it, there also will be a Gorjana jewelry show.

While you're browsing, check out the Chilewich and Haley Corina (pictured) handbag collections. Sandy Chilewich is a New York designer who came up with a signature textile, woven vinyl fabric that she uses to create totes, zips and travel accessories. They're simple, but boy, will one of these bags take you places!

Haley Anthonisen just graduated from Rio Americano High School and will attend the University of Redlands, where she will continue to make her one-of-a-kind bags.

The Haley Corina collection began two years ago, when Haley's father cleaned out his closet and gave her his "I-don't-want-these-anymore" ties. She began sewing the ties together to create unique handbags

They sell for $125 each, and Haley donates a portion of the sales to the nonprofit Women Empowerment of Sacramento, which provides support and assistance to homeless women looking to get back on their feet.

The boutique is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. See you there!

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites.
