Park and Pond opened in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood in August 2011. Founded by Bay Area natives and sisters, Jessica (pictured below) and Abbey Herman, Park and Pond is the source for awesome, creative, useful, and well-designed goods such as jewelry, stationery, gifts, home items, art, and bath and body products that have been produced within 100 miles of San Francisco. The store has been named the Best Place to Pick up a Hostess Gift and Best Homegoods by Bay Area A-List for three consecutive years!!! Pretty fantastic.
