Plume closes in Rancho Santa Fe

By Karen Billing

The stationery and gift shop Plume has closed in the Rancho Santa Fe village.

Rancho Santa Fe Estate and Fine Jewelry will be making the 50-foot move into Plume’s former space on Paseo Delicias.

Plume, owned by Courtney Macdonald, had been in the village since 2007. It had formerly been Parrot Press, a stationary shop run by Bobbie Schwarz for 30 years.

RSF Jewelers owner Coleen Freeman said she couldn’t pass up moving into the space.

“It’s bigger and right on the street, it was kind of a no brainer. It’s a fabulous spot,” Freeman said, adding, however, that she was sorry to see Plume leave.

Freeman is currently working on building improvements but expects to be in her new store by the end of February. Until then she will remain open at her old location.

RSF Jewelers used to be known as Marilyn Mulloy Estate and Fine Jewelry and has been in the Ranch for 30 years. Freeman worked for Mulloy for six years before purchasing the store from her three and a half years ago.

The store purchases diamonds, gold, watches and estate jewelry and offers custom jewelry design, repair and appraisal services.

“I think (Plume) will be missed, people liked to come to town when they needed a gift,” Freeman said. “I’m going to try and have some gift items since the space is bigger.”

RSF Estate and Fine Jewelry hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (858) 756-4047 or visit
