Whitewaller San Francisco 2018: Where to Shop

Open this week in San Francisco is FOG Design+Art Fair (January 10-14) and Untitled (January 12-14). For those traveling to the city for the fair, we’ve put together a list of top shops to check out while in town.

Husband-and-wife duo Christian and Daisy McClellan opened gather to bring their unique experiences and skills—Daisy is a jewelry designer and Christian a legal consultant—to selling their goods as well as those of other local and indie artists. “We want to create an engaging shopping experience that provides a meaningful connection to the craftsmen and women whose creations we offer,” said the McClellans.

Benny Gold
The Benny Gold brand started with a small sticker over a decade ago, and has since grown to include this flagship store and seasonal collections. From hats and tees to cut-and-sew and accessories, skate decks, collaborations, and more, the founder wanted the new space to tell that story, and to “foster a creative community around the shop.”
