Bear & Bird Boutique + Gallery

Thanks to a flyer I found at GESAI (at Art Basel), I found out that my favorite local comic shop, Tate's Comics, has opened an art/curio boutique upstairs. Stocking eclectic indie artwork, design products, fun kitschy items, Bear & Bird inspires an intimate, whimsical shopping experience.
If you dig Fred Flare, Curiousity Shoppe, and their kin, you'll like this place. You can tell the boutique owner made sure to carefully stock their selection with special care. Most of the stuff on the shelves, I haven't seen repeatedly on other quirky shopping sites, that's actually refreshing for someone who keeps a design/shopping blog.

The best part are the walls displaying indie artists whose pieces are actually affordable, you can buy it framed or as is (pieces ran from $40+). The current revolving exhibit has a "cash and carry" theme, so if you see something you like, buy it soon or else its gone. I'm looking forward to see their future exhibits.
Here's some pieces I liked:
