Another academic year is kicking off, and shoot -- no one does adult school swagger quite like The Brooklyn Circus (BKc).
Okay, so maybe you're not heading back to the classroom. But even so, SF's autumn is somewhere around the corner and the BKc Fillmore St. flagship has everything you need to stay warm and look fresh this season.

While most boutiques go dark during the afternoon of the 24th, lower Bernal Heights Secession Art and Design gallery and boutique is keeping the doors open until 7 p.m. on Christmas Eve. Even at the 11th hour, you can still scoop up unique gifts and works of art by independent artists and designers, including Colleen Mauer, Hilary Williams, Heather Robinson, Nous Savons, De Novo, Cara Lyndon, Minor Details, Orange Slice and many others.
