All Saints

On Saturday we were having a wonderful wander around SF with our friends Martin and Cate from Blanket. It was the only wet day that we had on the trip so we spent a lot of time in shops, restaurants and wine bars! Cate and I squealed when we ran across All Saints (Cate used to live in London so she was very excited to see a familiar shop) So if you look carefully at these images you can see that every window of this tall storefront is filled with cast iron, victorian, sewing machines - seriously there are hundreds of them! This is so up my alley I couldn't wait to explore the interior. So I sent Doug on a photo shoot while Cate and I drooled over the bags, shoes and jewelry(not so much the clothes, that seemed to be a bit 'Goth' for us.)

Note the sewing machines in all the windows.


How cool is this traditional white and gold window decal?


Sewing machines, sewing machines, sewing machines . . . .

Can you see the wooden spools on the wall? - there are hundreds of them(below)




The retail space itself is so impressive with huge industrial fixtures, tables and signage.

Fiona, so glad you saw this shop! I recently went for the first time and ADORED the decor! I bought a little wallet. As you said, the clothing is a bit goth, but the vintage touches of the store...fab! Hope you had fun here in SF!!

I think there is one in Soho in NYC...I remember all of those sewing machines in the window....on Broadway, I think. Glad you had a nice trip!

I went to this store in London and I was tricked! The window display was just like the one you saw and I remember thinking it would be all cool vintage things. The clothes weren't really my style, but I did find a great belt. Loved the window display though!
