the amazing technicolor dreamcoat




gravel & gold


when I return to the bay
it's a necessity to visit the gold girls.
Lisa, Cassie and Nile represent
everything I love about SF


humble
warm, funky
generous


from my mother's stories,
gravel & gold makes me think
of the first hippie dress shops
in mill valley, sausalito
haight ashbury


imagine,
augustin lesage
and the mamas of
the papas opening
a store together


no new age hippie garb here.
they have an incredibly sophisticated
sensibility for local craft, vintage
textiles, and striped shirts


stop by
say hi

I really love this shop. The girls are super nice and I love that they take the time to explain each and every item and why it's so special and unique. A great SF shopping experience.
