In Pane Sight: Acre/SF

Acre/SF, 301 Union Street.

In the window at Acre/SF: the allure of Blue Bottle Coffee and a cozy sitting space with stylish apparel and accessories at arm’s length is a sight for sore eyes after the near-vertical walk to this North Beach shop’s location. A quick reward comes in the form of an accessories table with Karen Walker sunglasses and Joomi Lim Spike bracelets just through the door.

Well worth the walk, the store beckons with a gorgeous view of the Bay and neatly displayed, contemporary clothing and jewelry by labels such as Cheap Monday, Something Else by Natalie Wood and harder-to-find modern designers splayed out perfectly on wooden racks.

Maybe a bit of a treck for your lunch break? You’ll find a similarly hip aesthetic at Acre/SF’s sister boutique, Acrimony, located at 333 Hayes St in Hayes Valley.

Vintage chairs and racks of magazines welcome you from the window, as does that cute Laugh, Cry, Repeat canvas bag strategically placed in the corner.

Michelle Vale clothing gives a shopping cart unexpected allure.
