Zoe Crenshaw and Lee Reynolds have owned, managed, and curated Hunt & Gather Shop in San Diego since 2009. First opening its doors in University Heights, the store now stands in the shadow of the North Park sign about a mile north of world famous Balboa Park.
Starting their journey designing sports gear at a side-by-side desk, Zoe and Lee have spent more than twenty years as style partners and local creative influencers.
Zoe herself is a well respected stylist in the area and holds a degree in fashion design, with experience at Bebe, Body Glove, and extreme sports brand, Fox Racing. She has traveled the country and the world to curate a constantly evolving collection of fashion, art, and accessories and is often available in-store for on-the-go stylings and consultations.
Lee has diverse design experience and a legendary past as a BMX stunt rider. He's also a founding member of DJ crew, Desert Hearts, who are known for their non-stop festival, raucous experiential live shows, and wide reaching fan base preaching their ethos of House, Techno, and Love.
Every seam and stitch of Hunt & Gather is proudly family owned and operated, with most staff members living a short distance from the store and contributing to the business in a variety of different ways.
The Hunt & Gather retail store has been a proud member of the San Diego community since 2009. Now at its second location, the store is known throughout Southern California as a unique style destination.
Carrying handmade works by local designers and artists in addition to vintage pieces, Hunt & Gather's racks and online catalog showcase funky fashion sense from the area's brightest minds as well as garments representing eras long since packed away in the closet of time.
Year-round labels include The Serene Collection, an offering of mindful handmade jewelry from Zoe's daughter, Serene Griffin, as well as Elisa Gonsalves Designs, and Vanessa Alcaraz's Combine and Create jewelry line.
Any visit to the store is guaranteed to involve gentle house beats, a mind-blowing selection, a smile from Zoe or on-hand specialist, and one hell of a game of dress-up. The Hunt & Gather team welcomes shoppers of all ages and fashion senses- there's something fresh for everyone!
