As we discussed earlier this week, I’m a sucker for a great object d’art, the more unique and personality filled the better! That’s why I’ve long been a fan of my friend Carrie Caillouette’s online shop Half Hitch Goods. Carrie’s curated the most spot-on collection of unique finds – not just for your house but also for you! Half Hitch unearths makers and artisans to collect unique pieces that you’ll want to keep forever. Their mantra is “thoughtful goods for thoughtful people.” How can you not feel that?! So when Half Hitch launched a Pop-Up Shop in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley I was SO excited to see what Carrie had in store.

I wasn’t disappointed!

The curated collection {housed in what’s usually the florist shop Birch} is a stunner. From one-of-a-kind vintage Moroccan rugs and throws {that Carrie brought back with her from her recent trip to Marrakech!} to classic blankets from Faribault Wool Mills in Minnesota, you’ll want to take a mix of luxurious textiles home with you! We had to restrain ourselves.

Speaking of home, there are bright and colorful woven baskets with grains of sand still in them from the deserts of Morocco and hand carved wooden spoons, spatulas and the most amazing pie server that are not to be missed. And don’t just think about yourself {preaching to the choir}. Any of these special items would make a gorgeous house warming gift for a dear friend!

If you’re in the mood for some fashion Carrie also partnered with Bay Area designers to bring in highly covetable wares. The Podolls have an assortment of women’s and baby garments to choose from. With a passion for green design, their line is sustainable and hand crafted right in our backyard. And as we showed you yesterday – is stunning.

And Metier SF, another local gem specializing in vintage jewelry, have carefully curated a collection of vintage necklaces, bracelets and rings specifically for the Haus of Half Hitch shop. They also brought in tassel necklaces and key chains/wall hangings from local designer Ariel Clute. They were so stunning we couldn’t walk away without one {as you might have seen here!}.

This is much more than just a store of stuff. Carrie has redefined the idea of treating yourself or someone you love to a truly special, lifelong gift. Perhaps you’d like an original watercolor paintings from local artist Emily Proud, sweet chocolates from San Francisco chocolatier, Dandelion, handmade handbags, vintage wall mirrors or special collaboration pieces including limited edition mugs by ceramicist extraordinaire, Helen Levi, herself! The options are endless.

So what are you really waiting for? All Bay Area peeps, go visit this beautiful pop-up before it’s too late. Haus of Half Hitch is open this month only. Do yourself a favor and make a trip over to Hayes St. before July 30th! Then you get lunch here afterwards. You won’t regret it. — Erin & Bianca
