~ Alameda trip and Bell'occhio ~ ~

We took a short trip to the June Alameda Antique Market.  The shopping was so interesting that we snapped only a few photos.  The displays in this space were stunning.

Kris was doing a bit of serious shopping.


At least 20 years ago we found a charming little shop in San Francisco.  Bell’occhio is the name.  We are ribbon and millinery hoarders.  As you can see why this is at the top of the list for MUST DO!.  They are tucked into a corner, a block from Mission Street on Brady.  

Pictured is Claudia the owner and her assistant.  Claudia was sooooo gracious and allowed photos.

The time flew by as we chose our ribbons and goodies. 

The shaped boxes are special, new ones are the bees and mushrooms. We have all the funky boxes except the mushroom.  Well we had one and gave it away as a gift (something that happens quite often).

A giant wooden shoe.

The "mushroom" box.
