Welcome to Ampersand


The Shop

Welcome to Ampersand: we are an event design studio + a local flower shop based in the Mission District, San Francisco.

We opened our flagship location in August 2014 and the shop is a space for creativity, community, and everything floral. Most of our material is California grown and every design is custom made.

Folks are also encouraged to get their hands dirty and choose blooms per stem at an affordable price point.

We have our hands and shears prepped for everything imaginable: from wrapped bouquets, vase arrangements, deliveries, walk-ins, weekly corporate accounts, cafes, restaurants, events, and more.

The Gents

Ampersand is founded by lovers Benjamin Emerson who reside in the Duboce Triangle with their occasionally cruel, yet beloved cat, Ophelia and their newer, friendlier (therefore favored) kitten, Luna.

Their combined backgrounds + interests include Ohio, Southern California, vegetarianism, drag shows, nachos, all things gay, over-communicating, theatre, an ever ongoing love affair with New York City and-or Hawaii (depending on the day), witchy intuition, and creating spacial moods together.

Our Designers

The shop is comprised by a tiny and talented team of designers who are happy to assist + design magical things every day:

Alec, Benjamin, Emerson, Emily, Rachel, Will, & Zoë.

It's a pleasure to meet you.
