Meet Our New Neighbor: Save My Seat Custom Upholstery!

In the two years since we opened, we have been staring at the empty storefront across the hallway and wishing for a cool neighboring merchant. Our dreaming and hoping finally paid off!

Lauren from Save My Seat lives in the neighborhood and is looking forward to offering The Richmond District her custom upholstery services. In addition, she’ll be selling handmade pillows and vintage furniture she’s rehabbed. Plus she has a cute shop dog named Pilot!

We are so happy to have another small business across from us that is locally owned, values great design, and is environmentally conscious. Stay tuned for details about the grand opening party in early April!

Foggy Notion Opens March 21

Foggy Notion will be opening on Wednesday, March 21! The vernal equinox is an auspicious time for new endeavors, marking the planting of seeds, an abundance of warmth and growth after winter’s cozy hibernation, and an increase in light and energy.

Mark your calendars for FRIDAY, MARCH 23 for Foggy Notion’s Opening Party. More details will be announced in the next few weeks.

Until then, the shop will be undergoing some physical changes. Finding the right person to help turned out to be easier than I thought…my buddy Drew Bennett.

Definitely check out Drew’s website, it’s packed with all sorts of great stuff. Drew’s work spans drawing, painting, woodworking, sculpture, furniture, and installation. More recently he’s been designing and building custom retail fixtures at places like A&G Merch, Goorin Bros. North Beach store, and Beachside. His enthusiasm for turning ideas into realities is completely inspiring and contagious, and his energy has made this project so much fun!

My personal work has always been based on reuse, so using reclaimed wood to customize the shop was imperative. From sourcing to prepping, it can be much more labor intensive than using virgin wood, but fortunately Drew and I share the same philosophy regarding reuse. For the counter, he found this beautiful pile of Doug Fir in the Mission. It has such a pretty tone.

That, along with some chunky redwood slabs, will be the counter! Everything else…well you’ll just have to wait and see. Almost everything will be built in Drew’s funky and spacious studio on Treasure Island, which has some of the best views in the Bay. What an inspiring spot to work!
