Check out those two cool kids! Look familiar? Oh yes: That is Eric; and that is Annie. What a dynamic duo.
This week we're stoked to go see this new show by our pals at The Little Lodge--you can't go wrong with original art + beer!--and working to fill up our walls with new work, since so much of our stuff went to happy homes in our sale last weekend.
Here's hoping you've got some plans that make you happy this fine Friday. And now: The Fish List.
I'm loving The What, my friend Gina's new venture with her partner Amy. There is no one whose recommendations I trust more than this duo. They've put together a simple, beautifully designed, weekly list with the goal of "becoming the love boat amidst your sea of email." Sign up here, and check out their FB page here.
I had a recent knee injury that sucked, but brought out the goodness in many of people. On top of meals being delivered, and company being given, our friend Gina--whom you just met in Annie's blurb above--gifted an unexpected treat for my feet; she said these Hoka shoes really helped with her recovery from a similar knee injury, and she very kindly bought me a pair. Now: I can't take them off. I feel better. I walk better. Highly recommended. She and Amy over at The What really know what's what.
My favorite line: “this isn’t a victory lap or anything, which wouldn’t be of much interest to us. this is just the bus full of substitute teachers back from their coffee break with new music and the same weird gear—or as much of it as we still have...and rambling around trying to be louder than everyone else."

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. Stanislaus Imports! Stanislaus Imports! Despite its brightly painted facade, it's easy to miss this *incredible* craft shop tucked away under the freeway on 13th Street (at Folsom) in SF--because that's exactly what I've done in the two years I've been living around the corner. Completely biked on by with no idea that inside was a veritable goldmine of absolutely random--and impressively inexpensive--art supplies and bric-a-brac. To be clear: Not the place for "high-end," "well-organized," stuff. The place looks a bit like the basement of a creative enthusiast who has been hoarding--er, "collecting"--over the years (er, decades...). There is a lot to take in, but wow, it's everything from paintbrushes to vintage ceramic baubles to pottery tools to... oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh, the list goes on and on. I spent $13 and walked out with a bagful of goodies. HIGHLY recommended for anyone with a keen appreciation of strange, offbeat treasures.
