Best Places to Shop on Black Friday in San Francisco
San Francisco is filled with great places to shop, but you may be wanting to find something off the beaten path. Consider bypassing the big box stores and malls, and try these destinations and events for a little something different.
This non-profit, all-local shop is open 365 days a year at the San Francisco Information Center on Market Street. They focus on hand-crafted gifts that are truly out of the ordinary. This year, they are teaming up with Pintrest to host the first annual SFMade at Pintrest Holiday Gift Fair, which will technically be held one week before Black Friday, on Saturday November 22. The event will be at 580 7th Street in San Francisco, and will be packed with great deals.
If you have someone on your list that truly has everything, then consider getting them some fine chocolates from Ghirardelli. Visit their shop at 900 N. Point St. and you can view some vintage chocolate making machines as you browse for the right flavor of chocolate for your friends or loved ones. On Black Friday, they will perform their 50th annual Christmas Tree Lighting, beginning at 4pm. The event will have live music, Santa, and the lighting at 5:30.
Drop your pants at the Seedstore this Black Friday, for their Bring Us Your Pants event. Any customers bringing in an old pair of jeans for the St. Anthony Free Clothing Program, will receive discounts on a new pair of jeans. Some really generous people might actually donate those new jeans to the program as well, which benefits local needy and homeless people. The Seedstore offers clothing, accessories, totes and other garments for men and women, and is run by a local team of sisters Jennifer and Cindy. They are located at 212 Clement St in San Francisco.
It might be as busy as the malls on Black Friday, but Chinatown is still a great place to find a unique gift and a sweet deal. There are hand carved golden dragons lining the streets to make you feel like you’re shopping in the 1920’s. Browse hundreds of shops with jade, silk, woks, lanterns, clothing and all sorts of one-of-a-kind items. Stick around until 6pm and head over to Union Square for their annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
