Those streets of san francisco

 Last week I was brought to San Francisco by YELP.
YELP is a review website. 
San Francisco was amazing.
Here's some photos.

The morning of my flight.

A black head piece to suit all outfits. 

This is the first shop I went to in Haight Ashbury.
It is an area full of vintage clothes shops.
This guy is selling vintage for 37 years and still loves it.

I wanted to buy this hat but it was too small for me.

A goodwill shop on Mission . I hit the jackpot here.
I got lots of lovely items all in the halloween section.

This guy was a real sweetheart.

This shop on valencia street sold clothes by the weight.

So much to choose from.

I spent 2 days at YELP
What a learning curve it was.

25 of us on the small business council.

More vintage delights.

Lovely houses

A great restaurant,
cuba style.

Inside radio habana.

 Some customers at Lucys

is playing some music at our halloween party on saturday.

Our new purchase . 
Eddie the flamingo.
Bought from these 2 girls at the flea.
He came all the way from flordia

Rory taking home our find.

Happy customers with full bellys at our coffee shop.

Such a sight for sore eyes.

Oh Lucy, what a fabulous adventure! I've never been to San Francisco, but I'm sure I would enjoy it, especially the second-hand stores.

I think the enormous pink flamingo needs a name!

What a great city and I'm so happy you went thrifting! ALl the good vintage is out now because of Halloween, perfect timing!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

I envy the people who met you dressed like that and carrying that bag etc. Beautiful custumers at Lucy's as usual.

What a lovely little adventure and you look amazing.
Wish we had huge thrift stores like that here.
You have the most, beautiful, colourful customers.

What a trip. There's such a difference between the incredible thrift shops and the cool clean Yelp offices. I so happy for you that you could take this trip. I look forward to seeing the treasures you picked up on your adventure. Your traveling outfit is excellent. Of course you got VIP treatment!

Ahhhhhawl! First off, I'm on yelp- I LOVE yelp- and am stoked to see you a part it it- and that they took you to San Fran. My heart quickens at the thought- you are on my home TURF! I would have cried if you'd have made it to Seattle, Washington, where I'm at now, and I not have met you. I will thrill instead that you were in sunny Cali, in one of my fave cities, shopping. Glad you found some goodies! xo.
