A fun thing to do in the Bay Area is to go boutique shopping. There are many clothing boutiques around the Bay Area full of original and unique clothing. One of my favorite clothing shops is Gioia in San Anselmo. Actually, I’m not the only one who likes to shop at Gioia. Patricia mentioned Gioia in her interview. Besides the great clothing you can find at Gioia it is also fun to shop there because the owner Joy and the people who work with her make the shopping experience fun!
I recently asked Joy Sasson, owner of Gioia clothing boutique in San Anselmo, CA what she loved most about the Bay Area. Here is her response:
What I love mostly about the Bay Area is the diversity and culture…whether it’s the arts, foods, nature, etc…we have it all! Also one can’t beat the Mediterranean climate here…
When I’m not working in my store, Gioia, I love to ride my mountain bike everywhere I can! I love the access to the trails. I can ride out my back door and get into nature easily and find my center and peace of mind…away from the multitudes of peeps!
I love the local restaurants here in Marin, with no need to go to San Francisco at all! There is so much choice, with the only problem of early closing. Marin shuts down pretty early and in the summer, I can finish a ride at 9:00 PM!
So, other than all that, I work in my cute little boutique in San Anselmo, which is fun fun fun!
Gioia has eclectic and exciting clothes for all women…if they are not conservative, and yet, conservative ladies have found something of wonder in my shop!
Come in and see me or one of my girlfriends who are helping me run the show!
