Wing Women: Two Birds Opens in Noe Valley

You might say that Noe Valley’s shopping drag is benefitting from a touch of winged migration.

After four years as buyers for HeidiSays in Pacific Heights, friends and business partners Susanna Taylor and Audrey Yang left the nest earlier this year to launch a boutique of their own. The result is Two Birds, whose lemon-hued interiors house a chic coterie of contemporary apparel and accessories from labels such as Haute Hippie, Elizabeth & James, Joie, Parker and locals that include Ali Golden and Amour Vert.

Beauty Buzz: Heliotrope Opens in Noe Valley

A new destination for all-natural skincare products and aromatherapy has arrived in Noe Valley, where cozy shop Heliotrope quietly opened its doors yesterday on Church Street.

While the newcomer will ultimately be home to the Heliotrope house brand of skin and body care products, a line that is due to launch next month, the space currently offers an array of eco-friendly, natural product lines, including EO, Earth Science, Naked Bee and Desert Essences.

“We’re trying to be all-natural and as green as we can be,” says co-owner Jonathan Plotzker.
