Sure it's a gigantic global brand, but Benefit still shows its hometown the love. (Twin founders Jane and Jean opened their first boutique in the Mission more than 40 years ago.) Proof: Tt's introducing the BenefitSkin Laser Facial in just two stores: SF's Sutter and Chestnut Street locations. We're more than happy to play guinea pig for this luxury service, which delivers gentle pulses of light energy to form new collagen, aka clearer, more radiant skin with diminished appearance of redness, fine lines and pores. The facials take 20 to 30 minutes and are given by registered nurses and nurse practitioners. There's no downtime, and the cost is an affordable $75 (astonished face emoji). Raise your hand paw if you're in, then book an appointment. // 2219 Chestnut St. (Marina); 262 Sutter St. (FiDi), benefitskin.com

Accessories freaks: Heath's upcoming sample sale has your number.

Not in the market for a new bud vase or addition to your Coupe dinnerware? No matter, Heath Ceramics' latest sample sale, on Saturday, August 3rd, is all about the beautiful bags. ICYMI: Heath Sews is the ceramic maker's textile and accessories division. And with the same intention and focus on material as it lavishes on its ceramics, Heath's soft goods—work bags, organizers, keychains , etc.—are made by hand from the best canvas, leather and cork around. The results are sublime. (We cannot lie—we lust after this Heath + Stein satchel every time we cruise the Mission store.) The sample sale will be held at the Heath Sews Studio—around the corner from Heath's main space—and will be stocked with first- and second-quality bags and pouches, as well as pieces that never made it into production (who doesn't want a one-of-a-kinder?) Prices will be up to 40 percent off regular retail prices. That, we can handle. You? Hours: 10am to 3pm. // 550 Florida St., Suite D (Mission), heathceramics.com

Whether you covet her dreamy dresses, boho-leaning accessories or beautiful homewares, every fan of Bay Area designer Erica Tanov should clear some time on their calendars this weekend, July 27th and 28th, to hit up the Berkeley store. The brand's two-day biannual sale will feature seriously deep discounts on samples and past seasons' items. Translation: Score as much as 75 percent off clothing, shoes and jewelry, as well as select home items including quilts, bed linens, blankets and throws. Hours: 10am–6pm Saturday; 11am–5pm Sunday. // 1827 Fourth Street (Berkeley), ericatanov.com

Buck up, guys: Chestnut Street just gained a new clothing store just for you.

Buck Mason menswear just moved to San Francisco. It's the seventh store for the L.A.-based menswear label known for timeless essentials like tees, sweaters and Japanese denim. Many of the styles are made in the USA, and prices fall in the $32 to $135 range. (We think the bestselling brushed hoodie ($85) and Vintage 5-Pocket Pant ($125) are pretty fly.) Fans of HGTV will be pleased to learn that the low-key cool and welcoming Chestnut Street boutique was designed by Leanne Ford of the network's Restored by the Fords. The fact that she's the wife of Buck Mason co-founder Erik Allen Ford probably had something to do with it. "We knew our first store outside of LA and NYC had to be in San Francisco. We've always taken a 'tech' approach to apparel; the way we try to solve problems around getting dressed, the way we ignore traditional delivery cycles and fashion trends, and the way we offered direct-to-consumer clothing at a time when wholesale was king. San Francisco and the tech industry engineered the way we look at running a clothing business, so the Bay Area already feels like home," explains co-founder Sasha Koehn. // 2220 Chestnut St. (Marina), buckmason.com

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is going strong—and the deals are PDG (pretty damn good).

Obviously we love fashion consuming over here at Shop Talk. But when it comes to sales, we're not always, um, sold. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, running through Sunday, August 4th, however, always makes us happy dance. Billed as the retailer's "biggest sale of the year," it features hundred of discounted products across all categories, including loads of new stuff (lots for fall!) from brands like Vince, AG Jeans, Ted Baker, Veronica Beard, Charlotte Tilbury, Ray-Ban and more. Plus, every day through Monday, July 29th, a brand-new daily deal at bigger-er savings will launch in store and online. And remember—on Monday, August 5th, prices will go back to normal. They ain't playing. Shop 'til you drop at your local Nordstrom (hey, Westfield SF Centre) or online. // 865 Market St. (Union Square), nordstrom.com
