Listening To Your Haters: Rica Sunga-Kwan Of Churn Urban Creamery

This week, Eve and Tim talk to Rica Sunga-Kwan, whose Churn Urban Creamery is one of San Francisco's most popular dessert pop-ups.

Born in Manilla, Rica moved to the Sunset District of SF when she was ten years old. After a decade working in the New York fashion and design industry, she returned home and started making ice cream. Now Churn is working to open a brick-and-mortar location in an old San Francisco movie theater. She stopped by Avenues Dry Goods on her way to drop off a check with her new space's architect to talk about how her multi-cultural background has informed her business, her transition from design to food, and running a business with her husband.

We're Back, Baby: Tim And Eve Talk About Staying In The Game

It's been a while, we know! This week, Tim and Eve are going guestless - we wanted to make sure we remembered how to do this thing (we kind of do. Kind of) before we roped someone else in to talk to us.

 In this week's episode, we're talking about what we've been up to since the last pod, our plan for a Analog Instagram Challenge, and Tim talks about how he balances art (Ed note: he'll hate that I said "art" - EB) and commerce with his designs for the store.

 We also discuss what you can learn from mall stores and Target, even as we talk shit about them. So there's that!

We're happy to be back, and hope that you'll stick with us. We're back on the podhorse!

Mean Girls And Mansplainers: Upcycling With Sand Shed

In our first "official" episode, we share a bottle of bubbly with our partners and pals Sand Shed, a vintage and upcycled goods company that shares space with us at Avenues Dry Goods (4120 Irving Street in San Francisco).

Sand Shed founders Hannah Gordon and Sarah Biggart are lifelong thrifters who started their business as a way to fund their road trips and shed some of their hoard. Friends since eight grade, the duo initially bonded following some middle school slumber party drama (aka the best kind of drama), and live together not too far from their place of business.

Give a listen to hear the secrets of keeping your side hustle fun, listen to us dish the dirt on Men Who Explain Things (h/t Rebecca Solnit), and be completely disgusted by Sarah's answer to one of Attention Shoppers' SOON TO BE ICONIC Five Questions.
