#NEVERSETTLE Photo Exhibit on Sat 4/1 March 30 2017

Please join us Saturday, April 1st from 3-6PM for a photo exhibition of the Oakland Women's March taken by YOU and curated by local Bay Area designer Randy Wells of Rockridge SF. Light bites and refreshments will be provided.


*********************************************************************************************************************************************


On Saturday, January 21, 2017, over 80,000 residents from Oakland and surrounding communities showed up together to march for human rights, environmental issues, civil liberties and social justice. People gathered not as victims nor as violent disrupters, but as a diverse civic army bonded by shared values and common purpose. This collection of images, taken by you, reflect the vibrancy, diversity and strength of our community. This is what democracy looks like in action. Resist. Be the change. #NeverSettle

catching up on things here at the shop 
and getting back on track with the usual grind,
including our super creative informative blog posts
which we know many many of you
have missed dearly.

We had such an awesome year, we didn't want it to end!

But onwards and upwards!
And in case we haven't seen you in a hot minute,
we wanted to catch you up on a few amazing, whirlwind, 
sorta mind-blowing events that happened to us in 2016.

We celebrated our 5 Year Shop Anniversary!!!
HOLLLAAAA!!!

Of course we had our usually awesome, off-the-charts
fun-fun-in-the-sun annual Anni party, inviting back
our first ever featured artists Jeramie Tolentino and 
their talent at the shop for the season.
Thank you to friends, fam & customers who came out,

...And to round out 2016,
Our good friend, customer, and tremendous supporter
Mayor Ed Leemayor of San Francisco,
paid the shop a visit during Small Business Week

The Press Conference was held at the shop
where Mr. Mayor spoke and our very own 
Ronnie-Boy got to say a few words.
Carolyn Tyler of KGO-Channel 7 news covered 
the event, and we were grateful that many 
of SF's raddest small business owners and supporters
came out to show their love and support.
It was a true honor to have this event at our cozy, lil' shop!

From the Amazon to the Concrete Jungle... September 01 2016

We're so excited to introduce a new line of jewelry to the shop ~ Tagua Nut!
.
  
Tagua Nut, also known as Amazon Ivory, is an eco-friendly material
that hails from the South American Rainforest. This hard nut, with its creamy
color, grainy structure, and smooth texture possesses all the great qualities of
elephant ivory but with no harm done to animals.
  
   
Tagua Nuts drop from a palm tree and are
collected by the Amazon people from the rainforest floor.
They are then crafted into a variety of beautiful, organic pieces,
such as the beads shown in the wrap bracelet above,
as well as the colorful, layered necklace featured below...
  
   
Margo Tettamanzi, Bay Area local designer of these eco-friendly pieces
carefully selects each bead for her exclusive designs.
She creates everything from necklaces to rings to bracelets.
Every purchase contributes to a sustainable source of income
for the Rainforest communities and helps slow down deforestation.
  
  
As you can see, every one of these pieces has a distinct
look and feel that sets them apart.
Whether it's a Tagua Nut statement necklace
or a simple Tagua Nut ring with a pop of color,
each piece will definitely add a unique flair to every outfit,
and make a great addition to every jewelry collection!
 
Be sure to stop by the shop to check them out in person!

  So the saying goes: if you like the weather in San Francisco,
wait five minutes.... Not a fan? give it another five minutes...!

With the constant weather mood swings we have
in SF, it's important to have clothing that's
light enough to store during the day,
but thick enough to keep you warm
for when Karl the Fog rolls in.

Fortunately, we just got in a brand that does
all of that and MORE! while being both stylish AND affordable!
.

We are happy to welcome Alamere Designs to the shop.
Alamere focuses on "classic, adaptable styles and the
best technical fabrics from the outdoor industry,
proven to provide weatherproofing and warmth."
Their clothing is absolutely perfect for both your everyday
commute and all the adventures in-between.
.
But the best part is that all of Alamere's clothing are
locally designed and locally made, right here in SF!
So stop by the shop or check them out online for men & women
and don't forget to shop small and support local!
