Sorry, but their clothes are overrated and overpriced, and Trisha and Olivia are mean and have bizarre fashion style.

This is such a well written piece about an amazing space. Bow + Arrows represent the best of Sacramento. I love how they not only are artist themselves as well as business people, but that they go out of their way to support in words and actions the endeavors of others. Olivia was one of the first people i knew who chose not to take her talents elsewhere as many “movers and shakers” have done in the past, relocating to bigger pastures such as New York, San Fran, etc. She stayed planted and became key in developing what is now a hotbed of style and artistic culture in Sacramento.
