  • Heathered


Heathered is not only created here, it also features lots of San Francisco-inspired goodies. How much more local-friendly could you get? The wallets and passport cases are all crafted from old maps, diagrams, and other detritus, giving you something besides your phone to look at while you're one the bus.


  • Drywell


Drywell specializes in "quality meat art," which sounds much more disgusting than it actually is. The illustrations include butchery diagrams overlaid with city maps and cuts of meat accompanied by innuendo-laced captions.


  • Black Licorice Boutique

Black Licorice Boutique

Although most of the handmade clothing on Etsy looks more like a craft project than couture, Black Licorice Boutique is an exception. The vintage-inspired dresses are well made and surprisingly cheap. Best of all, the boutique boasts an amazing five-day handling time on custom dress orders.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
