New in Town: What’s New in Marin in August 2020


Even with Covid-19, new businesses are still opening, and it’s a better time then ever to support local. Here are a few new openings and happenings to check out (safely) around Marin County this August.


Vegan and gluten-free friendly, Biscuits & Buns in Terra Linda serves biscuits and sweet buns of both classic and unique varietals. House favorite condiments and Pink Owl Coffee with dairy-free milk options are also available to complete your breakfast, snack, or light lunch purchase. Order online for curbside pickup.


What started as a side project back in 1997, CelebriDucks, now the top collectible rubber duck manufacturer, has launched a new PVC free, Phthalate free, BPA free and latex free rubber duck teething toy for infants — Good Ducks. Made 100% in America using the highest quality materials, this Marin County business is making babies (and parents) everywhere happy.

Marin native Laurie Berliner opened her handmade hat shop, Madge & Me, earlier this year and has recently re-opened in the midst of Covid-19. This atelier sells fine and fancy one-of-a-kind felt and straw hats, as well as custom pieces, for women, men and children. Hat repair services are also available, so you know your favorite hat will last.

This award-winning lifestyle store from Greenwich, CT just opened their second location in Tiburon. With new shipments arriving every week, Perfect Provenance allows you to browse men and women’s designer fashion, home decor and gifts from around the world.


After 4 years of being an online-only shop, this boutique interior design studio and global sourcing company has opened its first showroom in downtown Mill Valley. If you’re looking for sustainably and ethically handcrafted modern homewares, Saffron + Poe is the place. They also feature the works of many well-known local artisans including Aleksandra Zee, Katie Gong and Kaleen Cameron.
