Novachis, women’s clothing shop Buck + Fir, interior design store the Sitting Room, Lululemon kid’s offshoot Ivviva, maker-oriented Golden Rule Collective and the lifestyle boutique Gray Home + Lifestyle, which sells artisan-made bags from fair-trade label Manos Zapetecas, skin care by cult brand Grown Alchemist and towels by Japanese textile brand Fog Linen.
