Occasions For Being Merry and Maybe Even Finding Gifts
By Jialin Luh (Nov 28, 2008)
The winter holiday season can be at turns trying and filled with merriment. There is much to stress about -- which holiday party invitations to accept or decline, what dish to bring to the holiday gathering, how to stave off the pounds, how to balance your gift-giving spirit with the desire to stay on top of your finances and how to survive family gatherings. With incessant reminders and proclamations about the dismal state of the economy, San Francisco has not been spared from the crunch. But our vibrant city has much to offer this holiday season to lift you out of the blues. More

Treasures for Discovery
By Jialin Luh (Aug 8, 2008)
“The Vintage Paper Fair is coming up!” I said excitedly to a friend the other day. This drew a strange look and a puzzled “Oh…?” What, you may wonder, is a vintage paper fair and what’s to get so excited about? Hal Lutsky’s series of Vintage Paper Fairs only provide fantastic inspiration and finds to anyone with a passion for pretty much anything really. In particular, if you fancy yourself to be any sort of craft, design or antique aficionado, run, don’t walk to the paradise of vintage post cards, photography, campy brochures, “all manner of curious, beautiful and interesting old paper” and more that await at the Hall of Flowers. More

A Vessel of Sensational Finds
By grace chen (May 2, 2008)
A new vessel just opened its contents on Mission’s 16th Street. It’s called BellJar and it is a quite a deep vessel housing objects of an eclectic and stylish mix. Sasha Wingate, the visionary of this cozy space, showcases a delightful array of pieces that cover home décor, fashion and beauty for all to experience and take home as their own. Wingate explains, “I really felt inspired collecting, decorating and conceptualizing environments and creating these special little moments.” More

Out of the Park
By Aaron Davidson (Feb 15, 2008)
Posters. Prints. Paperweights. Paperbacks. Piggy banks. Postcards. Pillboxes. The Petit Pattern book. It's only appropriate that the store housing such miscellany be named Park Life (emphasis on the first consonant). Opened in 2006 on Clement near 3rd Ave. in the Inner Richmond, Park Life provides a fresh take on art and design, creating a space where affordable goods meet adventurous designs. More

The simultaneously dreaded and excitedly anticipated holiday shopping season is upon us. Before you succumb to elbowing your way through throngs of aggressive deal-seekers at the mall, consider some alternative avenues for procuring unique and thoughtful gifts. The next two weekends will be key. Tomorrow kicks off KPFA’s Crafts & Music Fair and Sunday marks the next installment of Mission Indie-mart. Next Thursday, Dec13th, the charming smattering of shops on Clement between 4th Ave and Arguello will extend their business hours to 9pm.

Delights for the Wondrous-Minded
By Jialin Luh (Oct 12, 2007)
When fellow Banana Slugs Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom met at UC Santa Cruz over a decade ago it was a recipe for magic. The San Francisco natives fell in love and after graduation packed their bags and set sail for New York. Nearly eight years later they decided it was time to leave the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple to return home and channel their creative energies toward what has now become the Curiosity Shoppe: a magical collection of vintage and modern treasures topped off with a lovely window display currently inhabited by… bats! More
