Perhaps you've noticed this 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon Transporter rolling around Hayes Valley and beyond since last December? It's the Half Hitch Rolling Shoppe. And you've probably bought a Saami bracelet or delicious SQIRL confitures from the back of it. Here's the thing: you might not see it around for a while. But only because Half Hitch is opening Haus at the Birch floral shop for the month of July, starting Thursday.
Also popping up at 564 Hayes Street in collaboration with Half Hitch: local, eco-conscious fashion line by The Podolls, curated vintage jewelry by Metier, and original water color paintings by Emily Proud. Together, the brands will create a "one of a kind retail experience" to "evoke delight and nostalgia." We can only imagine how the space will transform.
Luckily, we won't have to wait long in anticipation. The pop-up will be open from July 3 to 30 from 11am to 7pm during weekdays and Saturdays and from 12 to 6pm on Sundays. And for Birch fans, this is all happening while store owner Torryne Choate is out of town so hold tight if you're looking for her exquisite flowers.
