Out with the Old Party

Dearest Friends and Friendly Supporters of the shop,

We are very, very pleased to let you all know that Gravel & Gold has found a new home in the Mission. At the end of this month, we will be shutting our doors on Treat Street and dismantling our teeny-tiny space so that we can start moving to our new location on 21st Street @ Lexington.

G&G Treat Street

We’ve taken over the storefront you may have visited in the guise of Minnie Wilde—it is much larger, light-filled, and just a half a block down from Valencia Street, right next door to Serrano’s Pizza (have mercy). We are so excited to have the opportunity to expand the goods in the shop, show more art, lounge more comfortably, try on vintage dresses in an actual trying on room, readily supply tea + snacks, and offer more workshops, more music, and community building exercises (aka parties), which are the best. But before we go, we’d like to wring one last, very excellent party out of the old spot. Therefore, come

Party with us.


May 28th

Seven O’clock

We will be offering lots of items at a great discount, from furniture to fixtures, though you can rest assured that many of your favorite standbys will still be available in the next location. However this may be your one chance to find discontinued stripey shirts on sale.

All hail stripes, and The Weekend Starts Here, via RECTO + VERSO.

Thank you all so much for your support of the store this past year. It has been a terrific adventure. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible this Thursday and on down the line at the new spot.

Dark Store

Big Love to all,
Nile, Lisa & Cass

The Edible Garden

Art & Garden-Poster 2009

As I write this, I’m missing Mickey’s talk at the Community Center, and bummed about it. But this weekend, come on up for the Snock show and stay on for the food, some of it served from the Murch’s Eat Local kitchen-boat that’s been pulled in to town. Plus, the Bolinas Community Center serves our town well and is definitely worth supporting.
