Combined Suggestions, San Francisco: 9 reviews and 16 photos
Fisherman's Wharf is the paradise spot if you’re looking for cheap souvenirs to bring back to your beloved ones. I wouldn’t buy anything here for decoration in my house. There are countless stores, all of them selling the same things, the usual things, cups, tshirts and baseball caps (I love SF), magnets etc etc The prices are the same in all of them so don’t loose all your day there just to save a dollar.
In Chinatown you will can buy some more souvenirs, at least here you’ll know they are local products, I mean from China :) The prices are very low in some of the stores, dozens of cheap magents and kitch small useless things, baby’s napkin and other things for less than $2.
There several stores to buy clothes in SF, we noticed many famous brand names around Union square but also some good offers in stores near by. The prices were ok in general and probably lower than in Europe. Don’t forget though that there is a 8,5% tax for every item so don’t judge of the label’s price. Hopefully for us euro was stronger than dollar during our visit and probably will be for a long time. We didn’t spend much time in the top class stores, I get bored very quick anyway, the only interesting thing was that some of the stores have djs ! (pic 1)
Amoeba Records (1855 Haight St) will please the music lovers but I managed to get away without buying anything! At the same area you will find a lot of those gypsy like psychedelic clothes. You will find a lot of Tattoo/Piercing stores here (pic 2)
But you are on holidays, on a bright sunny day don’t get stucked in the big stores, walk along Market street (its name fits here, isn’t it?) and watch the locals playing chess (pic 3) or watch the beautiful clocks (pic 4), time doesn’t matter anyway…
