Delivered as promised – So Many Sales, So Little Time Part II.

Get ready for deals on great merch for men, women, children, and pets! Find unique (and in some cases very discounted) wares for your BFF, your Mom, your Dad, your pupper and even yourself! Think ahead and stock up on great gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, bridal showers, weddings, and/or graduations.

Public Service Announcement:  As you may have noticed, this is warehouse/sample sale season. Scroll to the bottom of this post for a list of sales and other happenings.

Tips worth repeating: check the websites before going; go early for the best selection; pick a city and go to the sales in that city; bring a bag; bring cash for when credit cards are not accepted; and bring a friend. Because we have so many sales at the same time strategic planning is a must. If a sale looks interesting make sure you put it on your calendar. Most of these sales are only a day or two and only come around once or twice a year.

Happy Deal Tracking!

Urban Air Market Hits The Lower Haight For The Last Market of the Year

Urban Air Lower Haight MarketUrban Air Market – Lower Haight. October 12, 2013. San Francisco. Free Admission.

THE DEAL:

Urban Air Market is teaming up with DSF Clothing Co. and the Lower Haight Merchants Association to bring you the LAST market for 2013.

Urban Air Market is a design-centric bonanza. The participating designers are chosen based on their originality, cleverness, quality, and emphasis on sustainability in their design. The standards are high.

Urban Air’s mission is to bring “truly sustainable, local, and well designed products to the people of San Francisco.” I think you will find “mission accomplished.”

Expect a well curated marketplace filled with independent designers showcasing unique wares. Also enjoy live music and great eats from restaurants in the street festival area.

Lower Haight Urban Air Market
Haight Street @ Fillmore Street San Francisco

FREE to attend

Bonus: Want a free tote bag from Boutiika on arrival? RSVP on Facebook.

MY TAKE:

Hands down Urban Air Market is one of San Francisco’s best street markets. Most of the goods are handcrafted, all are unique, and the vendors are likely to be the designer/maker. There is nothing even remotely big box about this marketplace.

I am super excited to check out the trendy mobile retail truck vendors. Look for the JasyBTruck, a boutique on wheels, and the K9UnitSF, the first mobile dog boutique. Woof! Roll out the clever.

Put this market on your must-do list and get a jump-start on your holiday shopping. Wow, did I really say holiday shopping? Shoot me.

Bonus: RSVP and claim a free tote bag by visiting Urban Air Market’s website.

MY TAKE:

Held only twice a year this is one of San Francisco’s best street markets. I particularly like that the shopping takes place outside, the goods are all handcrafted and well made, there is music and the ubiquitous food trucks. This event hits on all four cylinders.

Note: Prior years there have been complaints that most of the clothing and accessories are geared towards women. If you are looking for guy friendly stuff, to avoid disappointment, check the vendor page.
