Opened in 1991, the first Crossroads store is packed with a seasonal inventory of contemporary clothing and accessories for men and women. Located on Fillmore Street (Pacific Heights' main retail drag), it should be no surprise that there are lots of fashionable secondhand treasures to be hunted here. Keep your eye out for incredible deals on designer handbags and shoes, leather jackets, and one of the best selections of denim in town. Should the mood strike, you can literally sell the shirt off your back on the spot—for 33% of the sell price or 50% in trade. The now-national chain has three other stores in the city.
San Francisco is arguably one of the best places for thrift shopping — with residents who have an eclectic style and many well-to-do locals who choose to resale their luxury items, you're bound to find a gem among the racks.
From the Mission to the Haight to Pacific Heights, the hills are alive with an amazing array of vintage shops. Whether one's shopping preferences skew designer, vintage or classic-slash-comfy, finding what you're looking for—and things you didn't even know you needed—is easy. The city's thrift scene (including consignment and buy/sell/trade stores) is thriving and pulsing with a constant flow of new fashion items. These gently worn goodies make for cool souvenirs and add Bay Area flair to your wardrobe wherever you roam. That they're reasonably priced and recycled? Even better.
