Eliza and AJ have spent most of their relationship restoring pieces or creating magic with material from Urban Ore, a salvage yard in Berkeley, so we were excited to meet them and their scrappy pup Artie (named after the intrepid Warehouse 13 agent) there. The place is chockablock with freestanding doors, windows, sinks, furniture, and more, and we had a blast exploring its nooks and crannies while Artie kept an eye out for the resident kitties. We especially enjoyed the photography section (of course!), where Eliza and AJ messed around with a couple of Polaroids that we were tempted to buy.
Once the shop closed, we made our way to Point Isabel Regional Shoreline, an off-leash dog park that’s one of Eliza and AJ’s favorite places to let Artie get in touch with his wild side. We enjoyed a breezy stroll as Artie scampered over hills and along the water, making new friends along the way (although one beagle didn’t look thrilled about being disturbed). At one point, all three of them took a break to admire the fog descending on the San Francisco skyline. So sweet! Here are some of our favorite moments from our brief time together.
