Hudson Grace in SF and Fun Purchases

My good friends, Debbie and Laura 
were just here in San Francisco 
to visit and we had so much fun!
I suggested exploring Sacramento Street.

After I figured out the on-line parking meter :(
we entered Hudson/Grace.
The owners worked in home and tabletop product development for Williams-Sonoma and Banana Republic, as well as, Gap and Restoration Hardware.

 Lots of great white pottery.
I like the crisp white shelving with the grey back.
 I had never seen black candles like these
Santa Rosa style candles from San Miguel de Allende.
 Lots of interesting books...
 Great cutting boards...

 Fabulous scented candles.
 This section has found objects like hotel silver.

 Debbie bought that awesome, huge white bowl and
cloth cocktail napkins on a roll.
Laura bought dirty martini olive juice 
(I think my husband may like this, too).
And I bought the black wax candle!
If you can't make it to the 
Presidio Heights area of San Francisco,
lots of their products are available here.

Thanks for visiting!!!


  1. Its good thing they're not in Houston or I'd be there all the time. I will definitely peruse them online though. :) Thanks for the tip!

  2. Can you believe I haven't been there yet???
    Will you take me, please!


  3. Hi Mary Ann! Oh my goodness, I'd have to check my credit card at the door - a food bloggers nirvana! Those black candles are fabulous!!!

  4. What a gorgeous shop! Next time I'm in SF I'll have to stop by. Love Presidio Heights.

  5. Those black candles are the best! I'm always on the lookout for unique black candles…I live in Northern California so I'll have to drop by next time I'm in the city. What a fun store - thanks for the tour!

  6. Oh my that store looks amazing!! Great finds!


  8. Thank you for taking us along Mary Ann! Loved everything I saw but dying for the Hotel Silver pieces, gorgeous! I also love the Black Candle you got, I bought one in the past but when it melted away the inside was a disappointing black! So this one is really cool!

  9. I would love that olive oil, too. What a beautiful store. Those chunky cutting boards look interesting.

  10. WOW….another reason to venture on up to SF!!! What a wonderful store and I love those black candles.
    How fun to have girlfriends come visit and to get to play together. There are so many wonderful places there, it would take days to see it all! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Hello, my sweet friend!

    I am a little late, but I just wanted to stop by to wish you a very healthy and Blessed 2014!

    This post is GREAT! I am loving the candles and the white pottery.

    Lots of Love to you, Mary Ann!

  15. I usually get overwhelmed when bloggers show pictures from shopping. However!! The displays you showed were so nice---what a difference! Display is an art and these stores do it nicely!

  16. I could certainly spend some time (and money) in this lovely store. So many beautiful items in one place. The black candles are fabulous and I can never resist stylish white pottery either!.

  17. What a fabulous store!! THose candles are amazing, I have a friend who just moved to San Miguel I think I may have to have him send me some!!!
    Beautiful blog too!

  18. Even the exterior of this store is beautiful. I need to visit SF one of these days.

  19. Wow! What a fun store, I can see how that could become a wonderful 'regular' place to visit!
    Your home is so pretty!

  20. I don't know how this place flew under my radar, but it looks amazing and I have got to get there on my next city visit. I especially love the found objects and cutting boards. The candles are fab too! Thanks Mary Ann, you are already finding all the wonderful spots up there for me!
