Berkeley, blog, glass flowers, Jordan Ferney, metal bird pins, Oh Happy Day!, San Francisco, Tail of the Yak, treasures, West Coast
I first read about Tail of the Yak on the Oh Happy Day! blog. Jordan described it as her favorite store, (which is saying a lot because her blog is so lovely). I was so excited to visit on a trip out West last week. The tiny store has been in the same spot for 40 years, and it was even better than I had imagined. It is magical and beautiful and ethereal. ..Here are some treasures:Tiny Glass Flowers and Birds, $8 per bunch. I have been making child-sized crowns and these will be perfect for them. Little Metal Bird Pins, $.75 each. Cheap and adorable!Leaf and Star Straight Pins, $4 each. This packaging is almost too amazing to use them, but I can’t wait to start a sewing project! I also think they would be perfect on a bulletin board.
I am missing the West Coast already!

Where do the sewing pins come from?
There is no more information on the package, so I am not sure what country they are from. Perhaps vintage.

I live in Berkeley and love this store also. The owner is a very talented artist who has quite an eye for wonderful things.
