Seven Favorite Things: Gravel & Gold
Vibrant house-designed clothing and witty home goods make Gravel & Gold a Mission must-shop.
In addition to their 100% house-designed and -crafted line, Gravel & Gold Goods, the boutique features a slew of items from local makers and up-and-coming artisans from Brooklyn or France. Every piece has a story behind it, and a reason it's loved and sold at the shop.
G&G makes an huge effort to welcome neighborhood newbies to the Mission, too. Their current window display and front floor space have been residenced-out by Schatzi, a new vintage furniture shop located in the back room of Schauplatz (791 Valencia St.). The super cool living space installations (featuring custom tailored vintage furniture and nature themes) will evolve throughout the month-long exhibit ending Sunday, September 15th. Don't miss it.
Gravel & Gold (3266 21st St.), open Monday-Saturday: 12pm-7pm, Sunday 12pm-5pm
