San Francisco is home to some of the sexiest sporty girls around. I’ve seen girls ollie over MUNI tracks in mini dresses, met women at cocktail parties who still have climbing chalk under their fingernails, and witnessed a parade of skirt-wearing ladies bike down Market Street. This week, I noticed something new - women biking in heels.
This week, the Mission’s newest hip shop opened its gold-painted doors. Housed on an otherwise residential block of 20th Street (at San Carlos), the Stone Pony is already proving to be a popular spot for the city’s discerning vintage shoppers.
For those of you who think the Mission needs another thrift store like it needs a hole in the head, fear not: The Stone Pony isn’t a typical thrift store stuffed with overpriced used clothes shipped in by the bundles. Instead, the shop is a mixture of affordable hand picked vintage items, locally made jewelry and spiritual accessories, like sage and crystals.
