Iconic SF retailer Sue Fisher King moves to Fillmore Street + more local style news


After four decades on Sacramento Street, the home goods/gift store Sue Fisher King gets a new lease...and she’s a beaut.

Plus, local artists Windy Chien and Erin Hupp have collaborated on a limited-edition collection of functional and fabulous hooks. Sausalito designer Alison Davin's new book Living Natural is both a mood board and how-to for creating chic, sustainable home spaces. And even though Anthropologie is no longer inSF, you can still get your hands on their accessories at the Kimpton Alton Hotel.

Iconic luxury home goods store Sue Fisher King and its human namesake are celebrating the opening of their new Fillmore Street store. This is no small thing as SFK has resided at 3067 Sacramento Street for just shy of 45 years. It has served as the go-to spot for generations of shoppers hunting for beautiful place settings, linens, home accessories and special gifts from artisanal global brands. But feelings of nostalgia quickly turn into excitement upon entering the new magical space. It radiates warmth and sophistication. It’s airy and chock-full of beautiful things. It’s perfectly clear that the change of address is not going to change SFK’s status as one of the city’s most covetable places to shop.

Don’t you just love when function and form merge? We do, and our latest obsession from ceramic artist Erin Hupp and knot artist Windy Chien takes the cake. Indeed, This is Knot a Hook (wink wink) is a sweet celebration of both of their mediums coming together as an entirely new thing. The limited-edition pieces feature Hupp's signature hand-turned oversized “bracelets" formed into arches and attached to functional hooks, which are connected via colored cord starring Chien's amazing knot-work.

The artists and friends first came together to collaborate on the Knot Arch hook designed for Blunk Space's 100 Hooks exhibit in Point Reyes last December. The duo took things a step further this month, with the launch of 10 unique pieces. The two-hook version retails for $2,000 and the three-hook version is $2,500. All are knotty and nice.

Pst: See them up close when 7x7 Social Club opens on June 20th.

​You can still get Anthropologie accessories in SF…when you staycation at the Alton Hotel.

If you continue to bemoan the fact that you have to leave the city to shop at Anthropologie (the Market Street store shuttered a year ago), all hope is not lost. That is, if you staycation at Kimpton’s Alton Hotel in Fisherman’s Wharf. (We’d check in just to eat a couple of meals at its delish Filipino-Cali restaurant Abacá.) With Kimpton’s Forgot It? We Got It program, not only can you ask the front desk for a toothbrush or other toiletries that didn’t make it into the suitcase, you can also borrow a pair of cool sunnies, a belt, or a handbag.

The complimentary program—available at select Kimpton properties—rotates its selection of A-plus accessories regularly. Not the forgetful type? Go ahead and try a new piece just for fun. And if you happen to fall in love, you can buy it on the spot from the virtual storefront.
