1) I am terrible at plants. I got some succulents last year, thinking they would be easier to care for, but they have proved to be more fragile than I expected. I have had better luck with tilandsia, like this one, which I bought at Flora Grubb. 2) This must be the cutest newsstand in the Bay Area. Check out The Grand Newsstand on Market Street for local zines and books. 3) Browns in Bernal Heights, San Francisco. 4) A lone cobbler works here. I hope this place doesn’t go the way of many San Francisco businesses, which have been priced out.
