Hello, neighbor

Visitors to our studio and the Mission often ask where they should explore next, so last year we decided to make shopping maps showcasing our favorite spots. But sometimes even we forget to take in our dear neighborhood.

 

We’ve decided to show you a few of the places that remind us why we love this vibrant district. In the end, what started as a photographic tour turned into a reminder that we not only love these spaces, but the people who brighten them as well.

Paxton Gate
Curiosities indeed. Cheeky books, bones, and botanical supplies galore. Everything from the helpful staff to the moody atmosphere intrigues first-time and regular customers alike.

Gravel and Gold
Nestled under cool trees, this store invitingly draws you in with its colorful community-embracing art, gifts, and carefully curated clothing. We had a chance to check in with Holly and found we aren’t the only ones who seek pupusas after a night out.

Little Paper Planes
The store does not leave want for good light nor goods delightful to the eye. Come say hello to Hannah, who’s more than happy to show you cute baby photos or tell you where to lunch like a king when you’re on a budget. The store itself showcases beautiful print goods, ceramics, jewelry and more, all made by talented artists and designers.

Located on the vibrant 24th street corridor, no one leaves this spot unhappy as they walk away with a scoop or two (or three) of their adventurous flavors. And while we stopped in on a sunny day, eve the worst weather couldn’t keep   us away from a scoop of scintillating Tahitian Vanilla or Earl Grey Plum ice cream.

Self Edge
The ultimate selvedge denim and menswear cave. But if you’re not shopping, stop by and say hello to some of the dudes like Eugene and Young, who will more than likely have awesome music playing and a story to tell.
