Na Nin

Clothing store • Fan Extension

"Na Nin, The Fan Vcu by Mobelux. One step into this adorable boutique and you'll be California dreamin', no matter the weather outside. Reclaimed and found woods and driftwoods line the space, plants adorn most surfaces, and the air just feels lighter in here. The clothes racks may seem sparse, but they’re heavily curated with vintage and indie designer threads that feel hand-selected for you (assuming you’re a woman—no men’s clothes at Na Nin, sorry!). A few glass cases display beautiful, unique jewelry made by designers from Richmond and well beyond, and a wall of house-made scents and candles allow you to literally bottle the essence of the place and bring it into your own home."

Moosie's Ice Cream

Ice cream shop • San Diego

"Moosie's Ice Cream, Kensington by Noble Intent Studio. Moosie's serves up hand-made ice cream and sweet treats for the whole family. Grab a scoop or two of a classic flavor or try a premium flavor like red velvet cake! Pour on some homemade hot fudge and pick up a ready-to-go cake, trinkets, or candies made by local confectioners. This quaint little shop has a vintage vibe with seating both indoors and out."

The Leeds Library

Library • Warehouse Hill

"Leeds Library, Leeds by DS.Emotion. This is the perhaps less-known Leeds Library, but we think it's particularly special. Founded in 1798, it is the UK's oldest surviving subscription library of its type. It's a small but mighty venue, and visitors are asked to plan a visit in advance, so it's probably easier to check out the library's event calendar and come along to those for a full library viewing. This historic library isn't stuck in the past - it's constantly connecting with community groups and wider initiatives to open its doors and engage with the public. A super little find right at the heart of the city."

Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream

Ice cream shop • Capitol Hill

"Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream Shop, Capitol Hill by Hum Creative. A local institution, Molly Moon’s serves up the right mix of imaginative and classic flavors, all made with fresh and local ingredients. The notoriously long lines move quickly, and with Cal Anderson park right across the street, there’s always somewhere to enjoy your scoop."

test

Hammerpress

Print shop • Quality Hill

"Hammerpress, Crossroads District. The venerable printing technique known as letterpress is back in vogue and Hammerpress owner Brady Vest has been leading the renaissance. Full of texture and character, this vast array of cards and posters brighten any occasion. But his shop is just as cool, a restored mid-century modern gem stocked full with handcrafted home furnishings and gifts."

test

Patisserie Daniel

Bakery • Harris Green

"Patisserie Daniel, Fernwood by Friends & Neighbors. Best known for their playful take on fresh fair, this Fernwood staple keeps the locals stocked in all things baked, tiered and coated in the perfect amount of fondant. With over 30 years of experience in the culinary game, chef Daniel has a keen eye on unique combinations, and with key ingredients such as house-made marzipan, it’s the perfect spot to stop in and treat yourself. If you’re on the hunt for something savory, try a roasted veg and ham quiche, a traditional pastie or feta croissant. Walking past, if the enticing scent of freshly baked goods doesn’t get you, then the friendly view through the open doorway certainly will!"

test

Chicken 649

Korean restaurant • Chinatown

"Chicken 649, Rock Bay Quadra Village by The Number. If the bright and friendly interior doesn't make you smile upon arrival, their delicious, unique Korean fried chicken selection is sure to do the trick. The new kid on the block, Chicken 649 created a big buzz within the Victoria food scene as soon as the paint dried on their small Quadra storefront. Simple, mouth-watering fried chicken plus an assortment of fantastic sides make for a perfect group dine-in experience. Call ahead and place an order for pickup and you'll be the star of the next potluck dinner."

test

804RVA

Coworking space • West Broad Street

"804RVA, The Fan Vcu by Mobelux. A co-working space with a loyal following, 804RVA is more than just a rent-a-desk operation. It’s begun to be known as a place that houses some of RVA’s most influential entrepreneurs (its membership is lovingly referred to as “the Wolfpack”), but it welcomes anyone who doesn’t need a traditional office but doesn’t necessarily dig the work-from-home life. At night, 804RVA keeps the energy going by hosting speaking events, meetups, happy hours, and launch parties."

test

Beat Box Records

Record store • Barrio Logan

"Beat Box, Barrio Logan by Product Etc.. The building that Por Vida is connected to is actually a curated network of small businesses and creative studios called La Vecindad (The Neighborhood). La Vecindad also houses Beat Box Records, and a hidden vintage store with some glorious treasures, San Diego Vintage. Bernie started with selling records online and accumulated a big enough collect to open this shop. Their main thing is selling records at prices that make sense, and that are meant to be played. Don’t miss the $1 section in crates on the floor."

test
