Santa Cruz is situated about 70 miles south of San Francisco, on the Monterey Bay. It has long been a tourist town, a retreat from inland heat and famed for its boardwalk and surfing spots. Our office is on land that was once Mission Santa Cruz’s pasture land — Potrero is the Spanish word for pasture.
We’re located in the historic Old Sash Mill. The steam-powered mill was built more than a hundred years ago. It converted the giant redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains into everything from toy spinning tops to window sashes for the rebuilding of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. It was refurbished in the 70′s and now hosts about 120 small businesses as diverse as a cookie bakery, swim school, toy designer, sauerkraut kitchen, picture framing shop, wine tasting room, an apothecary and us.
