A place to browse this weekend

“People thought I was crazy,” says Torryne Choate, who opened a second outpost of Birch, her popular Sacramento Street floral and gift shop, in 2009. But it wasn’t just the decision to sell more flowers that raised eyebrows—it was also what fills the store’s entire western wall. Defying today’s “print is dying” mantra, the Birch on Hayes Street offers the city’s finest collection of fashion, music, and design magazines, including New York’s Lid and Germany’s Qvest. 564 Hayes St., S.F., 415-626-6860.
