Summertime DIY

Seeing as it’s only the first week of August, you still have time for some summer DIY projects, so I thought I would send some inspiration your way. Although our apartment is large by San Francisco standards, Shane and I have struggled within the confines of our 800 square foot unit. My shoe collection was […]

Workshop SF

Months ago out at dinner I asked my friend Katey where she got her amazing copper earrings. She had finished making them that very afternoon at the end of a two-weekend intro to jewelry-making series at Workshop. I had never heard of Workshop and was entertained by its name. Workshop on McAllister and Baker just […]

Treasure Island flea: the heart and soul of San Francisco

Thinking back on my travels throughout many countries, the marketplace stands out in my mind as the most robust source of cultural information- Guatemala has Chichicastenango, Mexico City has Bazaar Sábado, Cape Town has Green Market Square, and here in San Francisco, we have Treasure Island flea.

Hiking, Biking, Beaching (and Bocce!) in San Francisco Bay Area

I’ve lived in San Francisco now for 11 months, and here have been […]

Women Jeweler Entrepreneurs

Ever since moving to San Francisco last August and attending the Treasure Island flea market the last weekend of each month, I have felt inspired by the women I meet there who make and sell their own jewelry.

Recently on separate occasions I have eaten falafel, tacos and fresh baked organic cookies from various food trucks in San Francisco, and naturally I dragged Shane and his family along for a food truck extravaganza. Aunt Annie and Uncle Wally were visiting from the East Coast on […]

Wanderlust Yoga in the City SF!

Yesterday I finally pulled it off- I combined two of my loves, that is, yoga and working on my tan. Sunday on the Little Marina Green, Wanderlust yoga did its tour through SF. I ended up with a righteous sunburn on my forehead and a perfectly sore body. Danielle and I arrived shortly before noon, […]

I think Treasure Island flea market is one of the prettiest places in the Bay Area. From SF, you hop on the Bay Bridge at take the left exit in the middle of the bridge down to Treasure Island, and the flea market is right there! You see this enormous statue when you arrive. I […]

Awesome SF Bay Area flea market: Alameda Antiques Fair

The Alameda antiques fair is my second favorite flea market in the San Francisco Bay area, but for most people it is probably #1. I have a more personal connection to my favorite Bay Area flea market which I will feature in an upcoming post. Alameda is the largest market on my list. It is […]

Better SF flea market: Alemany Flea in Bernal Heights

The Alemany flea market is a legitimate and passable flea market. It’s teeny tiny; there are only two rows of vendors and usually two food trucks. It’s easy to get to in Bernal Heights just off the freeway, and they have a decent selection of quality vintage items, for example, this Coca-Cola tray: It even […]
