Shop Local This Season, and Support Rancho Relaxo by Visiting These Local Markets Along With Their Mobile Camper Van, Sunny! 

The modern style and spirit of the desert are flawlessly portrayed in Stella Adena’s eclectic boutique, Rancho Relaxo in Rancho Mirage. The collection of artisanal wares, apparel, and jewelry captures the romanticism and nostalgia of desert life. Now, the shop is hitting the road and traveling in style in a restored 1961 Aljo Camper Van named Sunny.
