A new shop may turn Lagunans’ visions of home design inside out. “Basically our concept is to combine indoor/outdoor living,” said Inside Out owner and Laguna resident Melissa Arnold. “We try to take things that you would normally use inside the home outside, and bring garden items inside.” Most items in the store are limited or one-of-a-kind, Arnold said. “We don’t like to carry a lot of duplicate merchandise,” she said.

Several Hollywood stars will be on hand to meet with their fans from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Festival of Arts. But don't expect to see Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley there. These stars aren't so easy to spot. But when you see a capuchin monkey, kinkajou, hedgehog, wallaby, binturong, serval cat, kookaburra, albino Burmese python, and three baboons at the festival -- all escorted by their handlers, of course ? you can rest assured they have showbiz resumes. The festival's "Walk on the Wild Side" will present exotic animals that have appeared on The Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, The Disney Channel and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

BEST BUYS Locals Only is the Barneys New York equivalent of a vintage clothing store. For 20 years owners Jim Olarte and Larry Craig have preferred a minimalist display and carry what's in fashion in vintage styles from the mid-1940s to mid-'70s. If peasant dresses are in, turquoise or fur, you'll find them here. Surfwear designers from Stussy, Billabong, Hang Ten Italy and Hollister Ranch shop here for inspiration. An archive room in back serves as their resource; they digitize hundreds of images of clothing.

Recipes, booths, dogs and one cat were judged Sunday, but the real winners were Laguna's three animal shelters. The 15th annual Pet Parade & Chili Cookoff raised $18,000 for the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, Blue Bell Foundation for Cats and the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. All three facilities are located in Laguna Canyon and suffered damage in the December deluge, but all are now operating at full bore. The city shelter cares for lost, stray, sick or injured animals rescued by Animal Services officers in Laguna Beach and Laguna Woods.
