Summer in the City

What a lovely day we had yesterday! Frankie and I headed into SF for gift market. The owners of the shop kindly let me bring her for a little cash and carry shopping. Super fun. She found some great items and then walked the show to see what was new and exciting. Almost educational for my business major!
The drive in was perfect, no traffic and no fog, the city was the perfect temperature, we didn't get lost, found the parking garage right off and strolled right in as the show opened. AMAZING. And we had a wonderful time together, so it was just a great day all around.
On the way home we cruised to Berkeley and went to Addison End Papers. Their shop is small and there was not a lot to look at but they told me about their shop around the corner that should be open on a more regular basis soon that will have all the little bins filled with ephemera that I've heard about. I can't wait to check that out.
It was a happy day. Just a few weeks till she moves back to school, so I have to cherish the happy days as they come along.

Sounds like a fun day. Did you buy anything? Did you see any interesting vendors?

Saw some interesting things, my favorite of the few that caught my eye was Cody Foster. Amazing booth. Turns out I have some of his stuff. Got it at American Harvest for xmas a couple of years ago. Used to be Back Porch Friends. He's also on Bayberry Cove's site. Just raced thru the main floor. The Vintage area for cash and carry was just ok, not as good as last time.

You seemed to have hit the city on a good day. Whenever we go to SF I get so stressed out. Parking is hard and people are impatient with our out of state license plates. But I do love SF. It is one of my favorite cities in the world. Your day sounded beautiful. And I love the picture of the bridge.
