This Week: Garage Store (San Francisco)
You know how it is: sometimes putting things off means they never get done. And while I can’t speak for you, I’m never better for it. Get ready for a tale of heartbreak and redemption. It’s a tale of lazy days, chilly nights and good friends who save the day in a little burg I like to call San Frantastic! And don’t get too excited, but we’re going to have a group cheer at the end of the post. Don’t worry, because it’s going to be fun. And now, This Week: Garage Store (San Francisco):
I’d just arrived in San Francisco when my dear friend Marla and I walked by the all things vintage Garage Store, and while my instinct was to take a photo, I didn’t have my good camera with me, so I assumed there would be plenty of time. Flash forward two weeks, and I’m home in Chicago wishing I’d taken that gosh darn photo with my cell phone. Luckily I have friends in Noe Valley, so thanks for the photo Marla. Although Garage Store isn’t one of those pop-up shops that are so de rigueur, owner Liz Winsor does pop up the door every morning when it’s time to greet guests, and that’s some sweet kitschy goodness if I ever saw some. This perpetual garage sale features a little of this and a little of that with a heavy emphasis on home goods at killer prices. This guy on Yelp says he scored a lamp for $15 and guess what? I believe him. That’s how reasonable it be. Stop in if you find yourself off the beaten path. And let my folly be a lesson to you: if you see something you like, buy it, because the goods go fast. Carpe Diem at Garage Store. Say it with me folks: CARPE DIEM!!!!
Garage Store. 1104 Sanchez St. San Francisco, CA. 415.550.6641
It’s the Garage Store owner Liz Winsor herself. Marla really went all out, and we’re better for it, aren’t we readers?
