Thursday, March 7, 2013

This hidden gem in Hayes Valley contains a collection of apparel and accessories, as well as antique and folk art.  Reliquary is a curation of things that are timeless and beautiful… "a curiosity shop of sorts."  

Location: 537 Octavia Street San Francisco, CA

General Store:  This Sunset haven is filled with eclectic hand-crafted merchandise made by local artisans and a curated assortment of vintage sourced items.  Whether you're seeking out homewares, clothing, accessories, or organic beauty products, the folks at General Store have you covered.

Location: 4035 Judah Street (btwn. 45th & 46th Aves.) San Francisco, CA

Bell Jar: A quaint little shop abounding with beautiful decor, delicate jewelry and feminine frocks. Located in the heart of the Mission District, this mainstay keeps it glamorous and hip.

Location: 3187 16th Street San Francisco, CA

Gravel & Gold:  Similar to General Store, Gravel & Gold is an advocate for locally sourced and made wares.  They take pride in supporting their artisans by integrating them into every aspect of the business.  This really feels like a collaborative endeavor.

Location: 3266 21st Street San Francisco, CA

Vacation: This Tenderloin treasure offers up the very best in vintage clothing, music and art. Not only is the shop bringing the "coolness" factor back to the "TL", it's also attracting artists and performers who utilize the space to display their creations and perform.

Location: 651 Larkin St. (btwn. Willow & Ellis Sts.) San Francisco, CA

Mira Mira: This tiny Mission boutique specializes in unique, hard-to-locate brands from all of the
world.  Eclectic, affordable, and stylish. Mira, the owner, has a distinct eye, curates pieces that are mixable and matchable, and hosts social gatherings to better understand what customers are looking for. Sign me up!

Location: 3292 22nd St. @ Valencia Street San Francisco, CA

Painted Bird: Painted Bird is a vintage+ modern consignment shop where customers are able to sell on the spot (a la Crossroads Trading Company).  There is a plethora of unique vintage accessories as well as kitschy pieces from the 80s and 90s to sift through.

Location: 1360 Valencia Street (between 24th & 25th) San Francisco, CA

Rand+Statler: This Hayes Valley sister store of Azaela Boutique, is jam-packed with designer duds including, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Acne, hard-to-find Modern Vice boots, and dainty Catbird NYC rings.  Don't plan on buying much though, unless your pockets are abounding with cash.  A bit pricey, but worth the splurge.

Location: 425 Hayes Street San Francisco, CA

Fiat Lux: Self-described as "San Francisco's littlest independent atelier", this Castro area shop, is well-known for showcasing up-and-coming jewelry makers and clothing designers from San Francisco and beyond. The owner is passionate about the designers he showcases, and will happily assist in locating a piece that is complimentary to your style.  Don't find anything you fancy on the tiny shop's floor? Don't worry.  Custom-made items can be commissioned out.

Location: 218 Church Street (btwn. Market & 15th Sts.) San Francisco, CA

 ACRE/SF: Perched  up on Telegraph Hill, this sister store to Acrimony, is insanely cool.  Not only does it hawk designer clothing from the likes of Rachel Comey and Vena Cava, but this Italian deli turned clothing store offers a hybrid shopping experience.  Blue Bottle Coffee is available for sipping while you browse the latest and greatest in fashion.  I'm SOLD!

Location: 301 Union St./Montgomery Street San Francisco, CA
