Cool Shop, Cool Name
The cheeky moniker of its city namesake, San Franpsycho, is a quintessentially local shop. On top of the variety of merchandise, the store holds events, which seems like a great way to meet locals. They sell locally created tanks, toques, sweaters and bags among other things. I love the anchor logo as well.

San Franpsycho is the kind of place you would expect to find in San Francisco but is actually becoming an endangered species in this rapidly gentrifying area: a true hippie holdout. Screenprinting T-shirts, hoodies, and hats in the back, the store represents a micro-manufacture trend that is slowly growing in the area. Browse amid the "wacky 'baccie" smell and support a decidedly low-tech operation.
