Magpie & Rye SF

September 16, 2013

Magpie & Rye is a boutique around the corner from where I live (Nopa,SF). I’ve loved this shop since the minute I peaked in it’s windows while walking around the neighborhood 3 years ago. What struck me was the space they created. This little gem belongs to Annabelle Rey. She’s drawn to raw materials & natural designs. To me her curated selection has a lot of personal touch and comes together in a way that feels like a well decorated home.

Magpie & Rye was originally part of Prairie Collective, and shared the space with Studio Choo. Though you will no longer be able to get your flower arrangements there, it’s still the same beautiful little space with a unique collection of items. I love the one of a kind pottery, and they have a solid selection of cards/stationary & jewelry.

While shooting the photos I chatted with Annabelle, who was working on some in house jewelry. I learned that she is originally from Santa Monica, and that she studied Fine Art, and also has a background in floral arrangement. She’s a lovely gal, and it was so nice to meet another local artist/small business owner.
