Where to shop 'til you drop this week.
Jo Malone London
No longer do you have to make a department-store run in order to get your Lime Basil & Mandarin candle fix. That's because Jo Malone London just opened its first Northern California standalone boutique on Union Street. Along with said signature citrus scent, the quintessentially British perfumery is chockfull of bestsellers and newbies alike. The just-released Rare Teas collection—six unique fragrances from Darjeeling to Oolong—makes the ultimate luxury gift for Mom or any lovely in your life… including you. // 2157 Union St. (Pac Heights), jomalone.com
Don't suppose anyone out there is interested in buying Timbuk2 gear at up to 70 percent off? We jest, of course. No doubt, you messenger-toting, backpack-wearing, public-transportation-riding Bay Area folk will be super pumped as you read this. What to do: Make room on your calendar this weekend for bargain bag hunting at Timbuk2's Warehouse Sale. Factory Store location only. // 587 Shotwell St. (Mission), timbuk2.com
Heath Ceramics Sale
Mama would definitely approve: Heath Ceramics is showing the love to all customers this Mother's Day Weekend. From Friday, May 6 through Sunday, May 8, the Sausalito Factory Store is selling its already-discounted dinnerware (and home accessories) seconds at a 20 percent discount. Do the math— that's a 40 percent savings on first-quality prices. Whoa! Plus, this is the first opportunity to get your hands on slightly imperfect versions of the new Tartine line. Along with ceramic goodies, Heath will be selling blooms by La Fleuriste, and coffee and treats from local java joints. // Store hours: Friday and Saturday 10am–6pm; Sunday 11am–6pm. 400 Gate Five Rd. (Marin), heathceramics.com
Maison de Mode Pop-up
Calling all ethically minded fashion peeps: Maison de Mode (MDM), the ultra-cool traveling luxury boutique, is popping up on Maiden Lane for two weeks starting Monday, May 16. Here's your chance to shop the sharply curated collection of un-cookie-cutter jewelry, accessories and clothing from socially conscious labels. The cherry on top? The exclusive MDM x Amour Vert collab, starring flirty florals and fresh stripes, will also be there. Naturally this five-piece, fair-trade collection is made in the USA with organic and recycled materials, and has a charitable component. // May 16–30, 125 Maiden Lane (Union Square), maison-de-mode.com
