Of the many New Mexican artists who worked on Los Poblanos Ranch and La Quinta in the 1930s, Gustave Baumann was certainly one of the most esteemed. The beautifully carved wood doors and fireplace mantle at La Quinta are the work of a master at the top of his game. What is perhaps less well known about Baumann, however, is that he had a wonderful sense of humor. And nowhere was this more apparent than in Baumann's annual holiday card tradition.
While most holiday shopping will be done online this year, there are still safe ways to shop this season. Our friends at Sabah in San Francisco are hosting a Los Poblanos holiday pop-up through the end of the year, which promises to be safely distanced, with doors flung open for ample fresh air, and full of holiday cheer. With Sabah's beautiful handcrafted shoes and our artisan lavender and Farm Foods collections, it's a wonderful opportunity to peruse lovely gifts that were made by hand. Sabah's airy retail space is located at 663 Haight St, and is open Wednesday through Sunday. For more information and shop hours, visit Sabah online.
