I am back from California and have seen many fun things and eaten much sushi and Mexican food! I'll try to get some pictures up later - highlights included the new De Young Museum and the dahlia garden in Golden Gate Park, and a brief jaunt to Napa. I also saw the new Ruby Gallery on Haight Street, the adorable Relish At Home in Berkeley, and I peeked at a great new jewelry atelier by Claudia Kussano in the Mission District.
It's a little crazy at the shop today, about 15 boxes arrived from all over the globe. Here are new items or restocks:
midcentury piggy banks
fun buttons for your bag or lapel
new serrote notebooks
melie bianco bags
new ceramics from dovetail studio
fabric-covered journals from paper cloud
keyaki wood teacups back in stock
polli jewelry back in stock
more great amy tavern jewelry
k. autumn birdies
fokus fabrik totes and skirts
the first of the autumn scarves from pistil
Whew! I'll be unpacking for the next couple days so we'll be all ready for the first really fall-like weekend. Come by early for the best selection, we stock limited quantities and things move fast!
And some Brooklyn sidenotes: design*sponge has put up a brooklyn shop and eat design guide for people wondering how to tackle the neighborhoods, and the new Brooklyn Not For Tourists guide is out (we have them instock) - Rare Device and our neighbors Greenjeans are some of the new mentions for the Slope. Finally, Sodafine is having an opening party on September 16th in their great new space!
