San Francisco Shops
RH San Francisco
188 Henry Adams St., Design District
While we're lucky enough to spend the better part of our days around beautiful RH pieces at goop HQ, stopping into their flagship gallery in the Design District never gets old. Perched just across the street from the San Francisco Design Center, you can easily lose an afternoon here, where the completely redesigned space—surrounded by garden courtyards replete with tranquil fountains and lemon and olive trees—allows you to experience RH Modern and RH Design Atelier, and the latest RH Interiors collections.
344 Linden St., Hayes Valley
Occupying a pretty clutch location across from the Blue Bottle on Linden Alley, the interior of Clare V.'s first San Francisco boutique is every bit the brand's chic, subtly Parisian aesthetic, with soft light pink floors and French-inspired posters on the walls. A garden in the back connects them to the Steven Alan on Hayes. Photos: Ulysses Ortega
Maker & Moss
364 Hayes St., Hayes Valley
The first thing you'll notice about this home décor shop is the grandiose space—the wood-paneled ceilings are tall and rounded, and there are huge skylights that fill it with natural light. Owner Matt Bissinger, an SF native, stocks the space with everything from mid-century furniture to ceramics, candles, vintage maps and wall-hangings, and other objects that make excellent gifts. P.S. They do registries.
315 Linden St., Hayes Valley
Mary Mar Keenan is a long-time potter that made a name for herself making tableware like plates, mugs, and serving bowls for some of the area's best restaurants (she designed plates for both The Progress and Nightbird). She sells her earthy, heartfelt pieces out of a teensy studio, and they're sort of the best souvenir (or wedding gift) imaginable.
Omnivore Books on Food
3885a Cesar Chavez St., Noe Valley
You don't have to be a foodie to get lost in Omnivore, which devotes its shelves to everything from hot-of-the-presses cookbooks to rare antiques and collectibles. It's a go-to spot for picking up gifts, and they also have a fantastic calendar of events, bringing in authors from all over the country (and sometimes the world) for signings and lectures.
1840 Union St., Cow Hollow
This shop in Cow Hollow stocks all manner of Japanese specialty goods from slippers and brightly colored pens to bento boxes and washi tape. Prices are reasonable so it's great when you're picking up gifts for a big group.
645 Divisadero St., Pacific Heights
Topo Designs is a Colorado-based company, and this shop is their first store outside the state. The outdoor brand is best known for their brightly colored packs for hiking, backpacking, bike commuting, or just bopping around town (they also make the best, most durable laptop sleeves), and for the fact that all of their products are made in the United States. In the shop, you'll find a full selection of their offerings, plus favorites from aligned brands like Zeal and Smith Optics, Ursa Major, Wigwam, and Hestra.
2136 Fillmore St., Pacific Heights
Credo stocks a wide range of non-toxic beauty brands from around the globe, including top skincare and makeup products from de Mamiel,Ilia, Kjaer Weis, Kypris, RMS, Tammy Fender, and our very own goop by Juice Beauty. The original shop debuted in 2015 in San Francisco, and is also home to a Tata Harper spa that offers facials, waxing, makeup lessons, and more. The second shop opened a year later in NYC, with its own Credo Beauty Bar, where you can book similar treatments.
Jay Jeffers—THE STORE
1035 Post St., Tenderloin
Housed in a Tenderloin warehouse originally built in 1910, Jay Jeffers' eponymous store was a long time coming. His design firm has been around since 1999, but it wasn't until 2012 that the long-awaited brick-and-mortar finally opened. The store is a stunning reflection of Jeffers' signature style; eye-catching and interesting without being flashy, and simultaneously comfortable and sophisticated. As for the merchandise, you'll find plenty of bespoke furniture from talented designers and craftsmen, many of whom Jeffers has limited-edition partnerships with. If you're not currently redecorating, there's a healthy selection of books and a few fashion items, plus plenty of throws, pillows, and bar accessories to take home.
Hedge Gallery (Closed)
501 Pacific Ave., Financial District
Steven Volpe and Roth Martin’s gallery-slash-shop is a gorgeous, airy space devoted to modern furniture from the 20th- and 21st-centuries, as well as revolving exhibitions of sculpture and decorative art from both local and international artists. As good as they look professionally curated, the pieces here are all meant to work seamlessly within just about any setting, something we learned first hand when we asked Steven to incorporate some of his favorites into our San Francisco goop MRKT.
