Yesterday I met Cassie McGettigan, who happens to live in my home town, and is one of the owners of Gravel and Gold in San Francisco, of which a fan writes: I really couldn’t love this tiny shop more–every time I walk in, I find something that makes me look over my shoulder to make sure I don’t have to fight someone else off for it. It’s the perfect place to find an unusual gift for someone or, say, yourself…I love the mix of perfectly chosen antiques and vintage clothes, and great stuff by local designers, some of it commissioned by the owners. These ladies have great, great, great taste. -By Arwen O., on Yelp
Not only did Cassie turn me on to a 24-hour donut shop in SF (Bob’s Donuts at 1621 Polk) as well as other cool places for food, coffee and wi-fi access (and I’m an SF native!), but her blog turned out to be SO in tune with my sensibilities.
Among items: a link to an article on Stewart Brand, Whole Earth Catalog founder in the NY Times by Edward Lewine, with Stewart’s typically spare, haiku answers to questions. Photo: Jason Madara for The New York Times
