last month i visited the march housewares store on sacramento street in san francisco. i'm not much of a cook, so housewares are usually not on top of my shopping list, but this store is amazing. it's artfully merchandized, and meticulously curated. from the green splatterware to the handwoven bungee rugs, from the braided denim bags to the delicate porcelain spoons, there is so much to covet, yet the store did not overwhelm. my favorite picks were the vincent van duysen canisters in a cool new blue color palette (sadly i forgot to take a picture) and the art by carrie mae smith, which brought a smile to my face. a must-visit!
