Small Business Saturday is right around the corner and what better way to prepare than by browsing our list of vintage stores and sellers in your area! Each day this week, we’ll be sharing a new list with you from a new city. Today we start in the The Bay, San Francisco!
This fun shop is run by three fun guys, Anthony, Brandon and Jon. This bunch describes themselves as “purveyors of previous junk and handmade goods,” so you probably should check out the shop. At Mixed Nuts you get exactly that; a mix of all types of goods. Mid-Century your favorite? You’ll find it here. Folk art? This is your spot. Walk in with an open mind to all types of styles and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Co-owners Will Lenker and James Spinello started Aunt Bill’s Antiques years ago, but STUFF is their newer venture. It’s 17,000 square feet, housing over 60 dealers and it’s open everyday until 9 PM. With their motto being “Come Be You, Get What You Want, Be Who You Are and ENJOY STUFF” it’s hard not to want to visit this vintage mecca!
STUFF is located at 150 Valencia Street in San Francisco.
The Perish Trust
Rod Hipskind and Kelly Ishikawa founded this modern day general store in 2008 in order to collect, craft and curate well worn home goods and locally crafted handwork. Their curated style is a “mix of the patinated old and the curious new” that represents their strong California heritage.
The Perish Trust is located at 728 Divisadero Street in San Francisco.
When Kelley Wehman and Illy McMahan met at Burning Man in 2008, they instantly clicked and shared many of the same passions- especially their mutual love for collecting vintage pieces. After a few years, they finally decided to open a storefront where you can come in to shop and sell. These two well informed buyers and sellers believe “don’t buy new, buy better! Buy salvage, repurposed, upcycled, found, saved, and recreated… and always buy local.”
Carousel Consignment is located at 2391 Mission Street in San Francisco.
This community operated retail space is dedicated to the exploration of vintage design and fashion as well as that of local arts and performance. While they sell vintage goods, they also serve as a community space for interactive art performances. “By focusing mainly on vintage and antique products, in fun, creative, and interactive ways, we hope to offer new perspective on reused and redesigned materials.”
Viracocha is located at 998 Valencia Street in San Francisco.
