Fashion and fine jewelry store Jest Jewels was named as District 2’s honoree for Small Business Week in San Francisco.

“Jest Jewels is more than just a store,” District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani said. “Every time I walk in there   —   and many, many people tell me the same — I feel like I am with family.”

Jest Jewels co-owners Leslie Drapkin and Eleanor Carpenter have long been involved in the local civic life, working on issues of zoning, street upkeep, the Union Street Festival, and more. Carpenter also serves as the president of the Union Street Association. “We love our customers and our community that it is our sincere pleasure to serve,” Carpenter noted. “Our favorite part is the interaction with our customers that have become friends — and their various pets.”

The Union Street store — one of four Jest Jewel locations — has been serving Marina residents on Union Street for 32 years. Its newest store is located in Hayes Valley at 333 Hayes Street.
