Sneak Preview

I just found out that a new Anthropologie store is opening up in Calgary. I am so thrilled! I am hoping that a few ring holders will be distributed here for the opening in Nov/Dec 2010. Here is a sneak peek of one of my favorite vintage saucer designs that will make it home with someone new very soon.

Viracocha

Further along on Valencia Street, another interesting store called Viracocha caught my attention. The pictures do not even come close in showing how cool this store was. Although it was very masculine, I could see the potential of a few pieces blended into a softer and feminine décor. Here is a taste of it....

Radio Habana Social Club

While walking down Valencia Street in San Francisco, Craig and I came across this crazy and wacky store front called Radio Habana Social Club. It was closed but we peeked inside to catch a glimpse of what it was like inside. And it was just as crazy as it was on the outside. I love how these old items have been transformed.....a view master is the head of an octopus; a bike helmet is a turtle...very witty and clever. And of course, a little bit creepy.

SCRAP

I was in San Francisco for a few days and had the time of my life. I love that city and did not want to come home!

I had heard about a reuse/recycle place called SCRAP so it was a 'must see' thing to do. It is definitely located off of the beaten path; but with a rented car and GPS, my boyfriend Craig and I found it fairly easily. I left happy with a smile on my face and goodies in my hands.

I was not sure what to expect walking in but it was instantly a feast for the eyes. For the most part, I was impressed with how organized it was considering the amount of stuff that must go in and out of those doors.
