Given that San Franciscans will always find a way to restore, preserve, hoard or just plain recycle old stuff, it makes sense that there's no shortage of storefronts devoted making what's old feel brand new again.

    Great, reasonably priced stuff, though of course the designer stuff tends to disappear quickly. That said, this is pretty much the best place to find worn-in jeans that won't cost a mint, ironic t-shirts, & the occasional, perfectly fitted light jacket.

    There's an awesome, mechanical, revolving, vintage department-store accessory case, and some revolving display dress-forms that make the place feel almost like a mini-museum.

    The selection is heavy on jewelry and accessories, with a few tightly curated racks of men's and women's clothing that tends toward the funky and brightly patterned, from the 1960s to the 1980s.

    Possibly the best curated & most high-end of vintage stores is Static Vintage, where you'll find everything from Missoni tops (starting around $500) to vintage Mickey Mouse t-shirts to 1980s Louis Vuitton and Gucci luggage to 1970s Polaroid cameras.

    Step inside the packed Divisadero storefront, being careful not to knock over glassware or the dog Tank, and you'll find out why everyone from former French Laundry chefs to Michael Tusk have stopped in to browse for their own kitchen goods.

    Imagine if Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond had been transported to Divisadero, outfitted with home bar goods, then decorated with vintage items from Boy Scout troops & reclusive writers whose typewriters have been dusted off & equipped with a fresh ribbon.

    What started as a garage full of mid-century Danish furniture off of Duboce Park has expanded to a warehouse space in the Mission. The shop's collection is so extensive, they've even supplied furniture for a Mad Men shoot.

    Noted as one of the city's most expertly curated vintage stores, you will find Oscar de La Renta beaded gowns, racks of Chanel circa 1942-1992, & mens suits fit for guys who know that style goes well beyond mimicking Don Draper's drunk-chic look.

    Divided into a mens and womens stores (just a few doors apart from one another), you can find a bevy of vintage high-end clothes, bags, and accessories from names like Hermes, Prada, Comme Des Garcon, and more.

    Be ready to hunt through stacks and bins, and bring a pleasant smile, patience, and if those fail, sharpened elbows, as this Goodwill's patrons seem to view shopping as a bloodsport.

    There's a room that's half Chanel & fantastic Halston originals from the 70's hang on a rack next to 00's-era McQueen. It's still not cheap: Bianchi and her staff of magical elves know the value of what they're selling, and what the market will support.
