San Francisco Haunts: Part Two

I finished off my little shopping jaunt yesterday with a stop at one of my fav San Francisco shops, Nest. This whimsical shop is owned and operated by the talented mother and daughter team, Judy Gilman and Marcella Madsen. I've known these gals for years, and they are as fun as they are talented.

Nest is located on Fillmore Street in Pacific Heights. One of my favorite neighborhoods to take a stroll.

Nest's holiday windows speak for themselves. Magical wonderland!

How do I describe Nest? At first you feel like you're walking into a Paris flea market. Then you get a touch of Morocco, India, Italy and Asia, all intertwined to give a mysterious Bohemian feel.

Nest has an amazing array of products from unique jewelry, luxurious bedding, pillows, clothing and tableware, to knick knacks, soaps and books.

Bejeweled nest chandeliers adorn the ceilings...


French souvenirs for you Francophiles...

Cabinets of curiosities...


I definitely got my infusion of inspiration yesterday at Nest. The perfect way to break up the long work week.

If you happen to be in the area, be sure and visit Nest's quaint little bazaar of treasures!

I loved both Parts of this post on San Francisco. Both of those shops are delightful, and you got some great shots. I love the offbeat neighborhoods, thanks for the virtual San Fran "Fix".

I adore this store. I saw it this summer while I was out promoting my book and didn't have time to actually spend time inside. Thank you for such a beautiful post.

What a wonderful shop, Lynn. I want to go there NOW. A bit to far from the U.K. though. What a wonderful array of things and so many. XXXX

One of the one places we managed to get to when I was down over Thanksgiving! It was super sweet! Maybe next time I'm down... a little meet-up? Loving living vicariously. I heart SFO badly. Sigh.
