While San Francisco may not boast proper ice cream eating weather, we do have some amazing ice cream (Bi-Rite Creamery's vegan chocolate coconut is my personal recommendation). To encourage the sun to shine just a bit brighter- and to help cool down those of you in blazing climates- I've rounded up my favorite frozen treat-inspired home goods…
And here is where my ice cream explorations get big and expensive: I searched for "ice cream" on 1stDIBS. So dangerous. Please note that all of these items are from different dealers, but they all have unlisted prices- which in my experience means "many, many zeros". But doesn't every home need a Parisian ice cream cart from the 1950s and an amazing 8-foot ice cream parlor sign? How about a Maloof's Ice Cream Shoppe sign because the word "Maloof" is funny, or a giant metal bowl of ice cream that looks like a brain? And, oh, how I'd love to twirl on these 1920s ice cream parlor stools- but unless my budget and my apartment get much larger, it's not to be. If any of you end up inquiring into these prices, please share with the class!
