There’s something to be said for antiquing.
That something is “This place smells like cat pee.”
That’s why you should do your mid-century modern furniture hunting at Mixed Nuts, a clean, cat pee-free (and delightful) shop now open in Hayes Valley and Outer Richmond.
This place is basically the junk shop of which dreams and Dwell magazine shoots are made.
Curated by a trio of young fellas with divergent but equally spot-on taste, Mixed Nuts is stacked with vintage loungers, Eames and van der Rohe office chairs, art, tchotchkes, electronics and camera equipment that speak to every man's inner retro-futurist.
It's like going down to your granddad's basement for the first time and discovering A) he's a well-organized hoarder and B) he's cooler than you gave him credit for.
And C) dude has a dope Instagram account, too.
