Studio Choo and Prairie Collective

Studio Choo is a floral shop that has opened up on Divisidero over in San Francisco as part of Prairie Collective. The two ladies responsible, Alethea Harampolis and Jill Pilotte, whip up lovely arrangements, for that special occasion or just to brighten up  your home, made from seasonal flowers, and as much as possible, locally grown. They seem to have a penchant for working in succulents, a known favorite here at OE. Many of their pieces are offered in quirky vintage or handmade conatiners. I am particularly drawn to the groupings in pewter pots and will have to incorporate this idea in TOA, especially after picking up the remnants of two broken terra cotta pots over the past two days. Other things available from the collective, which includes Magpie and Rye and the Cloak & Cabinet Society, include items such as jewelry, colorful clogs, forestbound leather pouches (don’t get me started on forestbound bags), soaps, and beeswax candles. I think the item I find most appealing is the ‘picnic date set’ consisting of a hand-crocheted blanket, four pieces of compostable  plates and bowls, and a flora guide, such as the pacific coast fern finder or berry finder guide. Pick up some scones from Bake Sale Betty’s, some INNA jam, and a cold bottle of milk, and I couldn’t image saying no to an impromptu picnic with this completely charming set.
