Best place to find what you weren't looking for

The Octopus and the Fox

Going in, I never know what I'll end up with, but I always find something fun and funky. I've walked out with everything from a handmade hand warmer to a vintage necktie. I'm partial to their quirky assortment of greeting cards.

Best place to multitask

Laru Ni Hati

Where else can you get a haircut, a Cuban sandwich, a shot of espresso, a cigar, and shoot some pool? Only at Laru Ni Hati in Nob Hill.

Best place to shop for a good cause

Peacecraft

When it comes to gifts, they say it's the thought that counts. I say put in a little extra thought by shopping Peacecraft's selection of fair trade items. Not only can you find items from around the world, you can rest assured that you're helping to support the artists who make them.
