Gravel & Gold makes me want to have a store again. This little gem, tucked away on a backstreet corner of the Mission in SF, feels far from its surrounding neighborhood. Owned and run by three beautiful and enchanting young ladies and filled with a collection of goods made mainly by local jewelers, printmakers, knitters, textile makers, and all around craftspeople, it’s what I daydream to be the ultimate roadside shop on top of a Pacific-facing hill along northern route one. Saint James shirts, Al’s Attire hats, Postalco stationary, Osborn/ Woods deadstock posters, the Shelter Publications books, vintage blankets and home goods… the shop is a well considered curation of purposeful, easy-to-love goods. OTP approved and admired.
