Vintage Collectives: Stuff

Don't you  love going to vintage collective stores?
You know the 'antique' stores that are generally larger
than single owner shops and house a multitude 
of collections from as many vendors. Kind of like
well edited flea market, kind of like a grown up
treasure hunt. A new one has opened up in San Francisco,
aptly called Stuff.

"It's an 8,200-square-foot collective in San Francisco's Mission District with more than 25 dealers peddling very cool items. These are professionals who comb estate sales, flea markets and who-knows-where for real finds. The dealers (the famed Ron Morgan and Christopher Albanese among them) know treasure from trash, and they are selling the good stuff here." via CHD

There is quite a bit of furniture from the 1960's
Plus, plenty of furniture variations, framed artwork,
 decorative accessories, collectibles around every corner.

There's even a parking lot: Lenker says that they will have a flea market in the lot once a month. If the store is any indication of the goods that will be available, you won't want to miss these.
Stuff is located at 150 Valencia St. in San Francisco (the old Cottrell's Moving Company building). It's open every day from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. No website, but you can learn more on their Facebook page: Stuff SF.
