As usual, Target continues to inspire.
Our favorite of this Fall’s Target offerings come from the San Francisco based Curiosity Shoppe.
The Curiosity Shoppe is owned and operated by Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom. The pair left their super fun, kinda crazy lives in New York City and came home to the San Francisco Bay Area to start up the Shoppe for the simple reason that they were obsessed with beautiful things. They’re thrilled to be sharing the objects and ideas that delight and inspire themselves with as many people as possible. Whether it’s a favorite art book, a vintage find, a carefully hand-crafted piece of jewelry or a one-of-a-kind painting, they guarantee that everything you’ll find in the Shoppe is special. The person who dreamed it up gave it their creative all, and they love them for it.
The collection that the Curiosity Shoppe has curated for Target is based on a vintage road trip.
Think : Route 66 in the 1950’s. Love
A few of our favorite, available online and instore, items are….
This cutting board shaped like our United States of America. We think it could be improved with a coat of “clear blue sky” chalk board paint and hung on the wall as a message board.
These Awesome salad tongs…..I’m speachless…I just can’t begin to explain how cool I think these are….
We’re a little crazy about these Cafe Au Lait Mugs as well. They’re just the right size for soup. 6 bucks each, great colors, and who doesn’t like vintage graphics? We certainly do.
If you do make it to San Francisco, I highly recommend a stop in this store. But if that trip is a little out of your regular shopping route, the Curiosity Shoppe has a website.
Here are a few of the offerings from the website that tickled our fancy….
How great is this red metal first aid box? It’s just what we need to mount on the wall in the garage for band aids and Neosporin. Not that we need either that often in our garage.(wink)
We also like this little ceramic soap dish. Maybe next to the guest room bed for keys and change.
This 2-toned wood magnifying glass would be the perfect gift for a “hard-to-shop-for” guy…
I’m really in love with these cork coasters. Could it be the Navajo prints?……..Could be.
How perfect would this bottle opener be mounted on the wall next to the “beer fridge” in the garage? Pretty perfect, if I must say.
Yeah, we’ll be placing some orders in the near future.
We linked each picture to the appropriate site to purchase.
Now start clicking and shoppe around a bit…..you’ll thank us.
