Remember when there used to be a flower shop in Hayes Valley? I do. It was run out of a garage on Octavia next to The African Outlet. Since the day it disappeared, the space has been rather dead.
This week, I noticed the garage door is open again! Ali Golden and Sarah Tejada are now working out of the space, and have named it The Bull + The Bear. Ali has a clothing line of drape-y yet timeless pieces, and her stuff was sold at Shotwell's. Sarah makes beautiful jewelry and purses with leather studs and folk art details.
Be sure to take a gander at their goods next time you're in the 'hood, and you can also hi to Ali or Sarah at a great little shop across the street called Reliquary, where they work part time. Hurrah for local fashion!
