Here in San Francisco, we're connoisseurs of thrift culture. We can neatly identify an article of clothing as thrift, vintage, upcycled, or used (and can admittedly get a little snotty if someone isn't keeping up with our lingo). Whether you're new to thrifting or a veteran, there's always more to discover here. Every neighborhood is peppered with its own array of stores, some with citywide reputations and some that are well-kept secrets.
Below you'll find my highly partisan list of favorites. Most of them are in San Francisco but two require a little travel. Hopefully you'll be introduced to a few new spots.
