SHOW: This Saturday - Firehouse 8 Fundraiser

This Saturday is "Shop Small Business Saturday" - and there's no better way to celebrate than by helping this retail/art/design/community hub get off the ground. We'll be joining other local SF artists, designers, and more at a fundraiser for Firehouse 8, the impressive community vision of Teresa Nittolo, owner of Molte Cose and Belle Cose shops.

It takes quite a bit of energy, time, and money to remodel a historic landmark firehouse, transforming it into a go-to gathering spot - but that is exactly what Teresa and her partner Gavin are doing. If you're in San Francisco for the holiday, I hope you can join me and other local SF creatives at Saturday's fundraiser, and let your holiday shopping dollars help bring this much-anticipated hub for artists, community-building, and small business to life!

About Firehouse 8, from the venue's web site:

Creating A Collaborative Space & Creative Environment

  • Our goal is to meet, socialize, educate and flourish together.
  • The first floor will be mixed retail and coffee supporting local artisans, suppliers & vendors.
  • The second floor will be a community assembly space available for rental: seminars, meetings, gallery openings, weddings & special occasions. We will host events with local talents, artists, chefs, musicians, photographers, speakers & writers. This space will be a philanthropic hub geared towards programs for children and our local fire department.
  • Firehouse 8 is a creative environment where art and commerce merge to form a unique space. Together we hope to inspire preservation and growth in our community.
