1605 Haight St: Haight Ashbury Painted Bird Quirky treasures are to be found in this gem of a store in San Francisco's Mission district. Featuring a great selection of late vintage from the 80s and 90s, the buyers have a great eye for upcoming trends and the helpful sales staff have...

Next year it's high tea at the Palace Hotel, which is my hands down favorite hotel in all of San Francisco (it was featured in the movie The Game with Michael Douglas. When he fell through the glass ceiling in the end, that was the Garden Court, which is where I shall be dining) Happy...

And this weekend we're taking our first-ever road trip and bringing a car-full of under $50 vintage gear to San Francisco, where we'll be hosting a Sunday afternoon sale in the heart of the Mission (we're in desperate need of a visit to the Bay and figure this way, we can write off the gas as...
