I visited a lovely little shop in San Francisco called Bell’Occhio located at 10 Brady St. It is a small shop with so many lovely things, antique ribbons, gift tags, small handmade cards, special scissors and so much more. I spent almost an hour there and still didn’t want to leave. There was opera playing in the store the whole time I was there. The lady who is also the owner hand wrapped almost all the small things I bought. Had a lovely chat with her and watched how she wrapped. She treated all the small things equally and wrapped them like the finest ballerinas putting on their ballet shoes before a show. It has been there for 27 years. World is changing, but she is still there, handwrote my long receipt and showed me the best place she thought I would enjoy a lunch alone…
