Makers Common

Highlighting all things Maker and Making read more...

Maker’s Common is the East Bay expansion of San Francisco’s popular cheese shop and café, Mission Cheese on Valencia Street. Sarah Dvorak, Oliver Dameron and Eric Miller launched a direct public offering, that raised a total of $600,000 from California investors.  Half all-day restaurant and half retail food shop,  the shop’s design focuses on maker culture. We custom designed a Gee’s Bend quilt-inspired tile pattern with local Fireclay tile, the hand-painted back wall mural is by the owner’s cousin, and a quilt by the owner’s mom hangs by the front windows. Repurposed and custom  pendant lights are by East bay ceramicist Jered’s pottery and a custom charcuterie case showcases the in-house made salumi by owner Eric Miller. Countertops and tables are contractor-salvaged doug fir and  chairs are by SF’s Chairtastic.
