Inspired by Frida Khalo, golden ceramic pineapples and local art: Meet Kristina, owner of Gigi + Rose. You can catch her at Ghirardelli Square basking in the sunny windows of her shop on Beach Street. If you ask her, she will help you build a terrarium or find the perfect hat. #ghirardellisquarefolks . . . . #ghirardellisquare #merchantstories #gigiandrose #ilovesanfrancisco #onlyinsf #ghirardelli #beachstreet #fridakhalo #boutiques #sanfrancisco #sflocal #goodvibesonly #SFlocalstories #culturetripsf #realpeople
