at the beginning of our san francisco trip we met derek & lauren (owners of the curiosity shoppe) at a great organic vegan mexican restaurant gracias madre. they gave us the sweetest japanese baby craft book- thank you! after lunch we stopped by their shop and i bought a case for my sunglasses and checked out the forage bow-tie show. then we went around the corner to gravel & gold. the small street between valencia and mission (is it lexington or san carlos?) is one of my favorites in the city. maybe it’s because the houses remind me of brooklyn and the yards are overflowing with wild plants. josh and i both fell in love with the plaid chair at gravel & gold, but (sadly for us) it’s sold as a set with a couch and we don’t have space for a couch too. i did buy a top made out of the most amazingly soft linen/cotton and a loaf of bread.

  1. What a beautiful, sunny day in SF. I know it's already on everyone's list, but Tartine in that little area is just so good, too, don't you think?
    I will keep this shop in my mind for my next trip out there. I have a feeling I would've loved the couch that goes along with that chair, too.

  2. I love the basket for bicycle!
    Really cute! It's by the chair you fell in love with…

  3. Ahhh! I love SF! These pix make me want to go!! For a treat, there is a place that has Choclava called Lavash on Irving Street. Chocolate & pistachio baklava. YUMMY!

  4. that chair is amazing, makes me want to curl up in it! When I lived in SF, it was right near those little streets, but I can't for the life of me remember which was which, I do believe they are both pretty damn cute!
