Like-minded designers from New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco mix well at Amy Mautz's Cow Hollow shop stocked with clothing, accessories, art, and gifty little somethings. sweaters definitely count as souvenirs.
A scrappy bunch indeed. Shelves of indie and out-of-print art, fashion, and photography books and the office supplies, stationery, and accoutrements for the bibliophiles that love them.
A stash of new, vintage, and antique goods with a worldly, tasteful, eclectic appeal. Artfully merchandised in a way that makes each gauzy dress and victorian jewel feel equally special.
