The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco's Mission District is the ultimate destination of those looking for quirky, clever, unusual and nostalgic objects! Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom, the owners of the store, left their crazy lives in New York City and moved to San Francisco to open up a place where they could sell the beautiful things they admired. They called the place "The Curiosity Shoppe" and filled it with rare art books, wonderful vintage finds, carefully hand-crafted jewelry and unique works of art! The artistic community of San Fransisco loved it and soon the Shoppe became famous! Today it is a must-go, must-see place that offers such a great customer service and selection of unique products, that the executives of Target.com wanted some for themselves! So they invited Lauren and Derek to create an exclusive, limited edition line of housewares, stationary, toys and gift items for Target's pop-up "The Shops at Target" series which opened up a few weeks ago! The 60 pieces collection is inspired by two of Lauren and Derek's greatest loves, road trips and all things whimsical, and it has definately stolen my heart! A post of my top 5 pieces will follow! Stay tuned!
