Red Rolling Pin If you love good design as much as you love good food, then the Red Rolling Pin is your kind of shop. This family-owned shop started out as a design firm first, helping homeowners realize their dream kitchens. But people kept popping into the design studio, thinking it was a cute little storefront. So the owners decided, "Why not?" They now sell mixing bowls that look like French heirlooms, kitchen throw rugs, vintage-inspired food scales and stunning kitchen light fixtures. 159 S.
