“Of necessity or by choice, there may be a revival of hand work in America. We are certainly capable, and these inherent, dormant talents may prove to be some of our most valuable resources in the future.”   – Lloyd Kahn, from the introduction to Shelter, 1973

These days, the world being what it is, it’s enough for us if a product is being made with beauty, wit, and care, no matter where it’s being made. You’ll find both vintage and new things in our shop from all over the world, though we do favor things made nearby our home in San Francisco. We hope they make your day a little more excellent.

Leather Envelope

Harnessing her expertise in solving complex sewing riddles, Holly landed on the design of this no-sew leather envelope as the most elegant solution for her everyday needs.

The curves remind us of a closed tulip and of the familiar swoops of the Golden Gate Bridge, tempered by the straight, utilitarian edges of the closure strap. Handsome on its own as clutch. Or thrown into a larger bag as a dignified pouch. Survey also says dude-OK.

The body is made from a single piece of belt-weight leather, cut with beveled edges, folded, and held together by a single brass rivet. Then there’s one more rivet to hold the closure strap in place and a brass button stud to lock it down. Stiff and hearty right now, but will soften and wear beautifully.

Made right here in the shop.

Now available in four bonus, joyful colorways: turquoise with a green strap, green with a turquoise strap, orange with a red strap, and red with an orange strap.

Builders of the Pac Coast

Lloyd Kahn is a consummate adventurer and publisher, frequently known for his earliest book The Dome Book and his own experiments in building as well as his involvement in The Whole Earth Catalog. Also essential are Shelter (from which Lloyd’s publishing company takes its name) and Homework, a more technical guide.

Builders of the Pacific Coast, however, is the most coveted and frequently referenced of our book trio from Lloyd. Of the three, it is the least practically advisory but it offers the most fantastic images. In it, Lloyd offers up a wonderland view of West Coast free form structures and their wild makers from the California coast up through the Canadian isles. Along the way, Builders provides a deeply feeding experience of presenting what cannot be imagined without proof of existence. Forty-eight totally awe-striking buildings are photographed along with Lloyd’s account of meeting their makers and his travels.

The ladies of G&G are particularly pleased to have encountered this extraordinary human and his work.

Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth

From the most famous midwife in this country comes an essential book on pregnancy and birth!

Ina May Gaskin was one of the founders of The Farm, a major accomplishment of our back-to-the-lander forefolks that remains an epicenter of simple living and birth education. She helped found The Farm settlement near Summertown, Tennessee alongside Stephen Gaskin, author of Hey Beatnik!, and many other super righteous counter-culture hippies, mostly from the Bay Area, who decided to get going on an experimental intentional community based on self-reliance, a vegetarian diet, gracious use of natural resources, and trust in their own bodies and wisdoms.

In 1971, they caravaned a bunch of school buses cross-country in search of land. Being young and healthy, they began having babies along the way and, as part of their faith in their own powers, they put their trust in their inherent ability to grow and birth babies without seeking a doctor or hospital. Without any formal training, they began catching babies on their own.

Without any former training, Ina May became immersed in the wisdom and practice of midwifery care, combining historical accounts, practical suggestions, and her own observed experience. With intuition and this knowledge, she and the other midwives on The Farm developed a tremendously successful means of care.

In 1977, Ina May published the famous Spiritual Midwifery, which has turned countless women and a number of men into midwives. Spiritual Midwifery exists now as its own entity of awesome, ushering families through positive stories of birth and useful information. Now, in the new century, Ina May has once again come correct with a book for the modern pregnant family.

Like Spiritual Midwifery before, Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth is divided into a section on birth stories and a section on the essentials of birth. The birth stories she shares are a welcomed change from the typical horror stories thrown about willy-nilly in our everyday lives. The ones offered here engender the feeling that birth can be mystical and fun and beautiful, no matter how strange. The second section takes the pregnant family step by step through the most important points to be considered in pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The information in this section is accurate, evidenced-based, and presented in a digestible and easily understood manner.

Though this book is designed and written for all audiences, Ina May does not fail to address many specific aspects of birth, such as one under the heading “Sphincters do not obey orders”, and other spiritual and physical topics that are often ignored in mainstream texts about birth. The hope for this book is for the reader to be able to make fully-informed choices about their birth and to come away feeling empowered and positive.

As a midwife myself, I have read many of the birth books out there and never have I felt so stoked on a collection of information. All of us Ladies of Gravel & Gold whole-heartedly endorse this work of love and information. Thank you, Ina May!

Tartine Bread

Since 2002, Tartine Bakery has been the crown jewel of our intensely competitive foodie scene here in San Francisco’s Mission District. Competitive foodies from all over, including Mark Bittman of the NYT, go so far as to call Tartine the best bakery in the United States. We wouldn’t argue with him. We send visitors there every day from the shop and, when she’s in town, my mom likes to stay at the inn up the street so that she can beat the line first thing in the morning. Her order: the seasonal fruit bread pudding.

For us locals, though, Tartine pastries are a lot to manage on a weekly basis. They’re always there, calling to us from that supremely fragrant corner of 18th and Guerrero, and we succumb to them often, but what we really eat on the regular is the bread. It’s perfect bread, and when it comes out of the oven at 5 pm each day, it sells out within the hour. It’s got a distinctive thick, crunchy crust and an incredibly airy, chewy inside. You gotta reserve ahead if you know you’ve gotta have it and you gotta get to it first is you spy a loaf at a potluck. By any measure, it doesn’t stick around for long.

Alternatively, you can make your own with guidance from this magnificent cookbook.

Chad Robertson is the head baker and the co-owner of the bakery, along with his wife Elizabeth Pruiett, who is Pastry Chef. Chad developed his master bread recipe over a decade of working with the finest artisan bakers in the U.S. and France, followed by another decade baking solo in a small wood-fired oven up by Tomales Bay. In this book, he offers clear instructions for how to make exceptional bread using just flour, water, and salt. Also included are more than 30 sweet and savory recipes for sandwiches, classic soups, puddings, baked French toast, and his signature Kale Caesar. And of course, like everything Tartine produces, it’s a beautiful thing. There are over 100 gorgeous photographs by Eric Wolfinger, illustrations by our friend David Wilson, and many of the the hardworking, familiar faces of our friends and neighbors working at Tartine. For a sneak peak, take a gander at the lovely short film here.

Dot Dash Earrings

When we ladies of G&G first saw these super wee little dots and dashes we immediately took ourselves down to the piercing station and got ourselves some extra ear holes to accommodate them in a full-time way. As you see here, Lisa won the prize for most creative placement with her tiny dot over medium dot plus dash cluster. All the better to show off the array of these brilliant wee ones, dearest.

Kathleen Whitaker makes these 14k gold studs by hand down in Los Angeles. They really are so very tiny–dot, dash, sprinkle, sparkle, staple, glint of golden sunshine.

****They’re great to mix and match or as a solo scene. We sell them one by one, so if you’re wanting a matched pair, please ring yourself up for 2.

Be Yourself

In honor of my Pop’s first solo record, Britt Govea of (((folkYEAH!))) and I produced this record, “Be Yourself: A Tribute to Graham Nash’s ‘Songs For Beginners’”. The album, released on Grass Roots Records Co., offers up various young artists’ interpretations of the 1971 original, including tracks from Vetiver, Brendan Benson, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes and myself. With awesome cover art by Tahiti Pehrson and layout by the talented Nat Russell, this record is guaranteed to not only remind you how phenomenal and comforting the original ‘Songs For Beginners’ is but also to inspire you to sing along. Our understanding that the simple messages of the album continue to ring true weaves a thread between past and present.

If you listen to vinyl you will most definitely want to collect this first pressing. 180 gram virgin vinyl and a bonus 7 inch record are rounded out by the quality booklet style artwork. Should you go the CD route, I assure that it is nothing to scoff at and would make a lovely addition to any music console.

1. Military Madness: Port O Brien/Papercuts
2. Better Days: Brendan Benson
3. Wounded Bird: Nile Nash
4. I used to Be a King: Vetiver

Perforated Candles

These ingenious tapers are perforated with five channels so that, as they burn through the night, the hot wax drips back into the candle, making them shine with increased intensity and without the risk of spilling over, for up to 7 hours. Great for the dinner table and especially great for the rare candles-only chandelier. Also, with a few drops of essential oil, these candles serve excellently well as scent diffusers.

5 Year Diary

From Ms. Abby Ulman, Sunday shopkeeping mistress extraordinaire:

If you’re a journal-keeper and anything like me, your diaries are archives for your thoughts, feelings, dreams, and most meandery meanderings, and pretty light on practical detail. I can read through old notebooks and—entry after entry—have no idea what city I was in, what job I was working, who I was living with, or who this mystery “S.” was to whom I was forever devoted for a week in April 2004.

In walks: the Five Year Diary. A lovely little notebook that stacks five years of, say, April 21sts on top of each other, so you can see in 2015 what you were doing on that date for the four preceding years. Daunting? Yes. Amazing? Oui.

The diary can be started on any day of any year. I procured mine last month ($30 = $6 a year. Stoke city!) Following the example of the ladies of G&G, I keep mine on my bedside table, and I record each day’s events before I fall asleep. So now I have a record of the who’s, what’s, and how’s of my everyday days. Who did I eat brunch with at Foreign Cinema? Lisa! What did I eat? An omelette and a cheeky glass of morning champagne. How did I get home afterwards? I walked! Down 21st street! In the sunshine! If god lives in the details, then this sweet lil notebook is my brand new bible.

Please do not panic, dear diary-keepers. This is not a replacement for your regular notebook. Just its left-brained, right-hand man—with a red ribbon attached to mark your place, and a section in the back to log the books you read and the places you travel. There is something so delicious about a product that is designed to be treasured and used every day, and only replaced once every five years. It’s surely the gentlest, most thoughtful, and least capitalistic form of planned obsolescence there is.

Thank you, Tamara Shopsin, mysterious maker. I truly ❤ my 5YD.

Point Reyes Hoops

We first located these hoops on a waitress at the Pine Cone Diner in Point Reyes Station. She directed us down the street to David’s studio where he pounds them out by hand. The hammered sides catch the light in just a such a way….and they get nice and be-agg. More than one lady hath woken with a full moon impression upon her neck—they’re so lightweight and such a part of the daily routine that one forgets to take them out the night before.

Available in either sterling silver or gold-fill. Select from five sizes: Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large, or Jumbo. Please note that the price will change according to which size and material you select.

Shelter

“How very fine it is to leaf through a 176-page book on architecture—from baliwicks to zomes—and find no palaces, no pyramids or temples, no cathedrals, skyscrapers, Kremlins, or Pentagons in sight…. Instead, a book of homes, habitations for human beings in all their infinite variety.”
—Edward Abbey

With over 1000 photographs and how-to instructional drawings, Shelter is a classic book celebrating the imagination, resourcefulness, and exuberance of human habitat.

First published in 1973, this over-sized tome serves as a history of hand-built structures—cave houses, communal huts, timber shacks, yurts, domes, and towers—and also a record of the countercultural builders of the ’60s who were learning and inventing as they went along. Today, after nearly forty years in print, Shelter continues to inspire countless carpenters and dreamers to do good work and build wild homes.

Sam’s, and our, favored choice is the classic No. 8 with a beechwood handle and 8 cm folding carbon blade. We go carbon, not stainless, steel because is gets so sharp so easily. Always watch that blade! Use the safety collar.

Guide to Breastfeeding

Gravel & Gold is super proud to be offering Ina May’s Guide to Breastfeeding. Published in 2009, this how-to manual is dedicated to “all those who work to raise the status of breastfeeding as a gift for future generations.”

Ina May balances a wealth of information with an accessible writing style. This definitive body of research is communicated like you are just sitting with the magnificent Ina May and, having had the honor of conversing with this super Lady, I’ll tell you that the experience is both informative ad entrancing.

In addition to years of experiential advice, personal stories, photographs, and diagrams, Ina May’s guide includes extensive research support. The researched information covers the basics of anatomy, benefits of breastfeeding, components of breastmilk, the cots of using formula, including the long history of safety recalls, hormonal involvements, how birth practices and postpartum conditions affect breastfeeding, the importance of skin-to-skin contact between Mother and Baby, latch, positioning, postpartum depression, returning to work, weaning, pumping, and much more.

As a reader, one is over and over struck by the overwhelming feeling that her information makes good sense. Ina May quotes Suzanne Cohen, PhD, who says that “[research] findings now support common sense” (84), which pretty much sums up the book.

In May’s Guide to Breastfeeding is a great read and a fantastic reference book. With extensive appendices and resources, her non-judgmental tone and overall support for women and mother-baby make this the essential go-to for anyone who supports breastfeeding. She states, “[milk] flows best and most abundantly when the mother’s needs are understood and respected” (30). Duh.

BTW—look for a shout out in the acknowledgements for your very own Lady of Gravel & Gold : )

Exploring Point Reyes

Once upon a time, there was a little guidebook much treasured among both West Marin locals and carpetbaggers alike called Point Reyes: Secret Place and Magic Moments. It was a great little book by Phil Arnot and Elvira Monroe, and it lead you to great places, as promised by its great title.

Then one sad day, the little great book grew up, cut its hair, got a straight job, and changed its name to Exploring Point Reyes: A Guide to Point Reyes National Seashore. The ladies of the store in town mourned the loss of its free ways, but in its heart of Tinkerbell hearts, its still the same great old hippie guidebook. Use it!
