Theater of Dreams
The other day a coworker and I cut out of the office early to go on a little field trip to artist Wendy Addison's astonishing only-open-five-weekends-a-year shop, Theater of Dreams, in the tiny hidden old town of Port Costa. Less than an hour outside of San Francisco, this one-street-town is amazingly charmingly dilapidated--it feels like you've stepped into another era, in another part of the country. And then stepping into Wendy's shop is another such twilight-zone journey--this one into a perfectly beautifully curated world of vintage ephemera and glitter. (Full disclosure: Ms. Addison is the author of many delightful stationery products published by the fine publisher for which I work).
