DIY couple

I found this article on the nest about a couple named Lauren Smith and Derek Fagerstrom who own a shop called the The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco which has an amazing collection of unusual gift and home products:

I love the mustache key holder:


Wall Mounted bottle opener:


Whale Chalk board:


Wooden Bricks:


Lauren used to work for designer Todd Oldham and Derek is the project editor for Ready Made magazine. Here is a peak at their crafty home, which sits above their adorable store. I love reading about couples that go in to business together. I think it is so inspiring and I would love to be able to do that someday...
