Cutest Curios - 2010
The Curiosity Shoppe
If the Curiosity Shoppe reminds anyone of ReadyMade magazine, it's because the adorable Mission District store was opened by former ReadyMade editor Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith, a former associate of fashion designer Todd Oldham. Talk about cute cred. The tiny depot celebrates the duo's self-proclaimed obsession with "beautiful things," giving shoppers a chance to decorate their homes with such delightful items as a Clare Rojas floriography journal, a porcelain cupcake container, a set of wooden bricks, handmade baseballs, a ukulele kit, a Rubik's Pepper Mill, and a dining table Ping-Pong set. Ready? You've got it made.
