Indie Design Thrives at Pandora’s Trunk, San Francisco’s Troubadour Boutique Shop

We accidentally happened upon Pandora's Trunk over the weekend and need to share! For those of your who haven't heard, Pandora's Trunk is a travelling indie-arts show hosted and featuring independent designers here in San Francisco. This month's show was hosted at the lovely B.U.S. Stop and featured live music, unique takes on clothing, delicious refreshments, and free admission! Out of the 15 or so exhibiting vendors, one particular booth caught my attention (and wallet)... Recover Your Thoughts is a book bindery's "side project", combining discarded public library books, excess print-house paper stock, and twenty thousand dollars worth of high-end book bindery equipment. The creations merge remnants of the previous books with good-quality paper stock to produce one-of-a-kind blank journals infused with some humor and a lot of creativity!
