Thanks to Jefferson of Mission Bicycles, for inviting me to their sneak preview of their 'Buy Fresh, Buy Local' concept. It will be launching this next Saturday, make sure you stop by and check out all the local made goodies!!
"On Saturday, August 22nd, Mission Bicycles will be selling home grown accessories and casual bike street clothing.
Designed, made, stitched, crafted throughout San Francisco districts, the East Bay as well as Gardena, Chico and Los Angeles, California."
From the preview, local brands (and more to find out when you visit) included: B.Spoke Tailor, Cordarounds, Rickshaw Bagworks, SFBC hoodies, Chuey brand, zero per mile, swrve amongst others. Good stuff :)

Home state pride.
/Those wooden pieces are top tube covers. They're pretty neat and so nicely layered and finished. Very neat craft!

  1. Looks like you've been up to a lot of fun stuff!

    Happy end of summer!!


  2. My old neighborhood...! "NEVER LEAVE THE MISSION" was our motto. Every time I go back I think, maybe I should have taken that more seriously.

    So cool to see all the bike stuff that's happening now in The Mission. It had to happen!

  3. I like the warmers, too. You take the gray, I'll take the red! Isn't that shop just gorgeous? I want to touch everything!

  4. Saw this place in SF Gate. Nice. Who makes those rockin' CA hats? CA has the best state flag ever. Me wantee (as you say...hint...hint...).

    You are becoming quite the hot commodity my dear.

  5. eyes open or closed, beautiful as always....
