Let’s get right to it- last weekend was amazing- and I’m not just talking about the Giants sweeping the World Series (!!!). Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the pop-up shop, including our awesome vendors- who I finally get to talk a bit about now! It was great to see so many neighbors enjoying the pop-up shop, imbibing Jillian’s amazing Halloween cocktails, and supporting local artists. I’m sure these ladies will be back at The Sunshine Factory soon so you’ll get to come out and meet them in the next round!
First up is the lovely Petra Royale of The Second Rvivl and OKBOMB! I have been a long time admirer of her refurbished vintage furniture and have found myself trolling the archives of her blog searching for more and more pieces many a night! Perfect hues paired with beautiful printed deadstock fabrics, these charming restored and re-upholstered pieces will quickly become your favorite thing you own. She also sells superbly bohemian and not too shoulder-paddy 80′s and 90′s clothing which was a big hit- come on, it’s San Francisco, who doesn’t love a good vintage leather jacket?? Head over to Petra’s blog, Etsy, and Facebook for more drool-worthy pieces!
I’d also like to introduce you to Cara of Saboteur SF, who was at the event serving up delicious coffee and her stitched reusable coffee cozies for paper cups and jars! I met Cara a few years ago at Vega near our old apartment and instantly developed bang-envy as she effortlessly slang soy lattes and poker-face’d SOMA yuppies and crazies. When I was thinking of talented ladies to partake in the pop-up shop, Cara’s cozies came to mind and were a perfect fit for the event!
Her cozies come in a wide variety of colors and patterns and liven up any cup, protecting your palms from that scalding hot americano.
My favorites include the (so freaking adorable) apple print and the bicycles! ::dying::
Artist/mama extraordinaire Becca of Little Otto Shop was also poppin up at the event, with lil Otto in tow! Becca graces the pages of Etsy with her fabulous stone rings and fine art silkscreen prints- start savin, they are BOMB. Who doesn’t like a good skeleton pony print?? Am I right or am I right. Her handmade journals were also a hit, great for stashing those petals and cute flowers you pick up while walking around town..
