Last weekend, I popped into my favorite flower shop in the city, Ampersand, to pick up some blooms for my most recent shoot. As you walk to this little spot in The Mission District, you can’t help but think how do people find this place? It’s gorgeously tucked away on a side street where the afternoon light peaks out from behind the colorful houses lining the street. The shop itself is seemingly reminiscent of an old barn house with reclaimed white wood, which is where much of it’s charm comes from. Here is a little peak into the inside of this hidden gem.
Once I stepped inside the store, I handpicked some uniquely colored sunflowers (the dark maroon coloring is natural) and chrysanthemums for a bouquet. Best of all, the whole bouquet was only $10! Can’t beat it.
Finding little places like this make me feel so lucky to live in this city. There are so many small businesses trying to make it, and it is my passion and pleasure to expose them to my readers alongside other, more established brands. Please let me know of other shops in the city that are your favorites!
P.S. No P.C. on this one- these photos are all by me 🙂
