N.I.C.E. Collective is closing up their futuristic Castro digs. The SF-based, rugged-military-meets-urban-tech outfitter is packing up and hopping over to the Dogpatch (near their HQ). We're sad to see the amazing Market St. boutqiue (dubbed the Mobile Supply Unit) close, but we're guessing the new Dogpatch space will be nothing short of extraordinary.
Confession: I'd never been to HD Buttercup. Though I enjoy interiors, my place is packed solid, so I don't furniture window shop much, however I do want a new bed...When I caught wind of the SOMA furniture store's half-yearly sale I rode over and disappeared from reality for about a half-hour.
We hate moving. Unless, of course, we’re not doing the heavy lifting and there are discounts involved. San Francisco’s messenger-bag favorite Timbuk2 is relocating their Mission facility around the corner and they’re planning to pack lightly. Which means this Saturday, March 13 a mix of older season styles and one-of-a-kind designs of their durable messenger bags, urban backpacks and accessories will be 50-70% off. You read that right. Stop by from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for that patterned bike bag you’ve been eyeing (only at a fraction of the cost).

Feel like taking a drive this weekend? If so, we've got just the destination for any bargain hunters out there. Why not head across the Bay to Berkeley for Trove's first mega annex sale? The home outlet boutique is known for having an incredible selection of designer goods (think John Robshaw, local artists like Rae Dunn, and many others) at discounted prices, but starting Friday, October 9th, they'll be taking the markdowns to a new level. Items in store will be marked off up to 80%, and there's so much discounted furniture that they're moving into the former Travelsmith location a few doors down to hold all the excess.
You can get lost wading through the 5,000 square feet of gifts and home decor at Dandelion; there so much good yet disparate stuff in that space that it can be a bit overwhelming. So we suggest bringing a compass, pack mule, and maybe some smelling salts to their Spring sale taking place this week, from Wednesday through Saturday. It's located at their warehouse in Potrero Hill, where there will be plenty of finds to be had (with 50% off all sale items) - if you're up to the expedition. Dandelion's warehouse is located at 1300 22nd Street at Mississippi in Potrero Hill.
Heath Ceramics just put out a beautifully designed place setting called the Olima Basic Set. To celebrate the launch, Heath is offering up to 15% off the regular price for the next week. To take advantage of the discount, simply type in SETS at checkout. All sets include a Redwood Dinner Plate 10.75", a Sage Salad Plate 8.25" and a Birch/Matte Brown Cereal Bowl 6.5". All dishes are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe. And as with all Heath Ceramics products, they're made right in Sausalito.
Like sass and class? What about Hollywood Regency, but with a dab of San Francisco's laid back sophistication? Then you, my lovelies, need to head over to Pacific Heights to indulge in the sale that's currently going on at Wynne Alex. Everything in the store is 25% to 50% off. And all of the Oly Studio and Barclay Butera Home is 25%. No, I did not stutter. That's 25% off Oly Studio and Barclay Butera Home. Wow indeed! The sale goes until January 31st. Wynne Alex: 3085 Sacrament Street.
