The BellJar is the Mission’s newest addition to the bountiful bevy of funky boutique shopping. Opened recently by designer Sasha Wingate, the BellJar is a mix of new and vintage finds….but mostly new. The beautiful boutique is chock full of home furnishings, ceramics, apothecary items, stationary and cards, garden-inspired gifts and even a bit of fashionable women’s apparel. The name gives a nod to Sylvia Plath, but it more references the Victorian age when BellJar’s were popularized as decorative accents. And, the BellJar’s intimate back room gallery also hosts art openings featuring a new local San Francisco artist every month.
