8/12/13 SF Chronicle/SF Gate “The Bay Area’s Top 100 Shops 2013”

5/15/13 The Worst “the most San Francisco store you could imagine…an upscale hippie paradise”

3/26/13 Racked SF “The 38 Best Home Goods Shops in San Francisco”

2/10/13 SF Chronicle/SF Gate “Foggy Notion is full of repurposed mason jar items and accessories. Anderson’s assortment includes new jars and collectible vintage blue jars.”

1/15/13 Asterisk  “Of the eco-friendly, handmade, and wild-crafted ilk, items from beloved local lines blend seamlessly with repurposed goods.”

1/9/13 Refinery 29 “Foggy Notion’s got the best smelling room spray!”

1/1/13 Spotted SF “The owner is super friendly and has a lovely mix of locally made and repurposed products…her unique offerings are a fresh and fun addition to this neighborhood.”

12/6/12 The Bold Italic  “Although it’s right around the corner from Green Apple Books, Foggy Notion on 6th Avenue isn’t visible from the street, which means that a lot of Alissa’s business is from people in the neighborhood. It’s kind of like a secret little shop for area locals, but like a juicy secret, Foggy Notion is too good not to share.”

6/27/12 SF Chronicle/SF Gate  “A former post office might not seem like the most obvious spot to open a hip little gift shop in the Inner Richmond, but to part-time photographer Alissa Anderson, its allure was obvious: an intimate floor plan, high ceilings and loads of beautiful light.”

5/11/12 The Bold Italic “What do you get when you add waffles and vintage duds? The unlikely combination makes for a deliciously nostalgic Mother’s Day shopping extravaganza.”

4/23/12 SF Station “Foggy Notion offers jewelry and recycled vinyl and leather goods of Alissa’s own creation, as well as handmade, organic and environmentally conscious products from other designers and artists. This includes bags, wallets, art, skincare, and home accessories. The shop, which doubles as Alissa’s studio, is located in Richmond Plaza, formerly a post office. It’s a bit of a quirky spot, but it’s cozy and full of light. The décor of the store follows the recycled theme of the merchandise. For example, the checkout counter is made of reclaimed planks of Douglas fir and redwood, and the hanging orange light fixtures are from an old warehouse in Fresno.”

4/19/12 Daily Candy  “The Richmond’s newest digs go green with a vintage pop-up (clothing, accessories, and jewelry via Little Eagle Vintage, a.k.a. Robyn Miller), record sale (curated by Andy Cabic of local band Vetiver), and 25-50 percent off jewelry by house brand Mittenmaker.”

4/19/12 Boutiika.com “Eco-friendly Product of the Day: This Midwest Finds Mason Jar Pump Lid is a reproduction of the old zinc mason jar lids. They are fitted with a pump to turn any regular mouth mason jar (even vintage) into a pump dispenser for lotion or soap. So cute, and so eco-friendly! Find it at Foggy Notion in the Richmond.”

4/18/12 The Bold Italic “When was the last time you visited the lovely ClementTime microhood? Sunday gives you a great excuse. Local star rock photographer Alissa Anderson is hosting a vintage and jewelry sale at her new shop, Foggy Notion. If you’re a crystal fan, you won’t want to miss pieces from Crystals & Leather.”

4/11/12 SFBG “Alissa Anderson of Mittenmaker opened the doors of her Inner Richmond shop last month. She sells her own eco-conscious creations as well as green products from other, mostly Western United States-based designers and craftspeople — like Captain Blankenship fragrances made with local biodynamic grape alcohol and Daughter of the Sun recycled leather crystal pendants.”

4/5/12 Green Apple Books Blog  “If Alissa Anderson has her way, Clement Street won’t be known mainly for cheap toilet brushes, and someone hoisting a dead hog on his shoulder, because her delightfully curated pop-up store, Foggy Notion, just around the corner from Green Apple, displays a unique selection of handmade and organic decorative appointments, potent potions, and hefty accessoires, bringing a bit of Hayes Valley chic to our sometimes too-sensible street.”

3/22/12 SF Chronicle/SF Gate “Look out for…opening bash of ex-Vetiver player Alissa Anderson’s Foggy Notion studio-shop.”

3/21/12 Daily Candy “Owner Alissa Anderson culls home goods, jewelry, organic skin care, accessories, and wall art from creative friends (mostly near, some far) in the shop-cum-studio: Anzfer Farms rustic fixtures, Captain Blankenship fragrant salts, Job & Boss’ to-dye-for bags. Covet exclusives like Lay Swing’s geometric pillows and Wood&Faulk’s waxed canvas bags, or DIY at the Mason jar bar (with pump or Cuppow tops for your customizing pleasure). Don’t miss Mittenmaker, Anderson’s own collection of zip pouches, wallets, and cosmetic bags made from discarded leather scraps and Pampero rum leather bags. Here comes the sun.”

3/19/12 Boutiika “Foggy Notion is a studio and shop in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond carrying local, organic, and handmade products. The shop will open March 21, and will have their opening party March 23.”

3/18/12 Bold Italic  “After almost 10 years of creating clothing and accessories for her line Mittenmaker, designer and photographer Alissa Anderson decided to open a space where she could make and sell her own products alongside other products she loves. Alissa will create jewelry and recycled vinyl and leather goods right in the shop, and showcase other designers and artists from San Francisco and beyond who create handmade, organic, and environmentally-conscious bags, wallets, jewelry, art, skincare, and home accessories.”
