In the window at Stone Pony: illuminated crystals surround carpet bags and 70’s trade-ins at the Mission’s newest storefront. Wander inside to find $4 aprons, $12 dresses and a large unicorn mural made especially for the store. Stone Pony is so new Google Maps hasn’t even picked it up yet, but have no fear–the tiny boutique with shimmering gold doors lies on 20th St. between Valencia and Mission.
In the window at Molte Cose and Belle Cose: Russian Hill’s twin vintage-minded shops for men and women brilliantly blend old and new with mysterious little treasures, flirty cocktail dresses, delicate jewelry and even Rat Pack-esque fashion for men. But be forewarned, with interiors as charming as the windows, once you’ve entered, it may be hard to leave.
