Featured Store: Urban Mercantile, San Francisco

I spent the past Christmas weekend up north with Dan's family in Cupertino. Talk about a food coma Christmas with fresh steamed crabs, prime rib, his mother's famous oatmeal muffin (legend has it that Dan inhaled 13 muffins in one sitting, must've been his younger days), cherry pie (another famous recipe) and way more food than I can list.  

After a day of visiting friends in the city, Dan and I decided to explore Haight-Ashbury (hmmm, quite an interesting sub culture there) and walk off some calories while we were at it. Lo and behold, on the way, we passed by Urban Mercantile, one of the wonderfully modern boutiques that carry our products. Of course we went in to look around and take some pictures for our blog (which also gives us the idea to feature stores we like every so often!). What a store! The shop is full of precious collections for the home. I was a bit sad that owner, Bradly, wasn't there that day.  I highly recommend stopping by if you're in town.

Unique Los Angeles 2008

What an exciting weekend it was! We has so much fun showing our wares and meeting new people at the first Unique Los Angeles holiday gift-mart. The vendors there are such a creative bunch. I was tempted to splurge everything I made there on things I wanted for myself (forget holiday shopping for other people!). Fortunately, I had the sense to hand over the loot to Dan who made sure I only spent what I needed (holiday gifts. bah!)

Check out our new sign! It was cut on a CNC by the incredibly talented furniture designers from A Single Tree.  Thank you John and Brendan for the last min. save!
Brendan checking the cuts. 

I'll post more in the days to come some of the items I LOVED at Unique LA. Sadly, I didn't take enough (or any at all!) pictures.
