Shopping in San Francisco: Haight-Ashbury

Head to Haight-Ashbury when you’re looking for vintage and record shops:

Wasteland, 1660 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117

A big thrift shop selling whacky vintage clothing and some excellent finds. On my first trip to SF I scored a pair of LLBean duck boots and one of my all time favorite cozy sweaters (I skipped that hat).

Haight Gallery, 1780 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117

Looking for some art? This amicable little contemporary space has some colorful pieces of your favorite icons, pets, and more.

Clobba, 1604 Haight St San Francisco, CA 94117

Your trendy little boutique selling some affordable and adorable options. I got my favorite pair of sunglasses here on my first visit to the city, though they are long broken and gone I still think about them from time to time.

Amoeba Music, 1855 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117

What’s a counter-culture without a soundtrack? This area was filled with musicians, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, so why not get lost in this gigantic shop and find yourself a new CD or record? They also sell cool posters, movies, and have live shows.

Loved to Death, 1681 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117

If you want to get a bit weird, this is your spot. Skeletons and taxidermy animal heads? Check. Goth-y jewelry and creepy antique-y home décor abounding.

    Absolutely. I couldn’t decide on what to buy until my last store, and ended up just getting chocolate for everyone!

    Shopping in S.F is one of the easiest and most cumbersome things to do. One cannot be sure of what they want to buy due to the availability of a large number of options.
