Perch is a gift shop with hand-selected items from small-batch makers and brands we love, chosen to inspire. We hunt for treasures that are useful, unexpected, and sometimes irreverent to help bring joy to the giver and receiver.
Perch opened in February 2008 with the #1 goal: Curate and inspire amazing gift-giving. This continues to be our guiding principle, and nothing makes us happier than hearing that the gift purchased at Perch brought a spark of joy to someone's life. Yes, it is stuff, or as some call tchotchkes, but when stuff can fill a need or make someone happy, we couldn’t be more thrilled.
If you find yourself in Glen Park and need a little respite from the outside world, stop in, look around, perch even, we would love to have you.
Zoel - Owner / Buyer
Zoel started his retail career at sixteen, working at The Broadway. After working in the retail industry all his life, opening his own shop seemed like a pipe dream. With the support of his husband and friends, he took the leap and left a 20-year career at Gap and created Perch. When Zoel is not working on all things Perch, he can be found trying out new recipes, exploring his inner artist, and spending time in Sonoma County – his home away from home.
Teanna - Manager / Jewelry Liaison
Teanna joined the Perch team in July of 2013 and, with her, brought an extensive entrepreneurial spirit and extensive art skills – which she uses to create our amazing window displays. When she isn’t managing the shop and implementing her incredible merchandising skills, she can be found gardening, pet sitting, and killing it as a member of the American Poolplayers Association.
