Shopper’s Diary: Case for Making in San Francisco

June 9, 2016

On a recent visit to San Francisco, I came upon a new storefront in the Outer Sunset called Case for Making. The small shop, run by former architecture student Alexis Petty, sells an edited selection of art supplies and studio storage solutions such as enamel paint trays, canvas baskets, and pencil holders from custom plywood shelves.
