Vintage Finds For A Modern World: Collage.


Collage Gallery
is a funky little shop up on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill. It’s the kind of spot I go to when I’m jonesing for a flea market and there’s not a one in sight. Collage has a wonderful selection of vintage oddities, gift ideas and collectibles, like letters and old maps. There’s wonderful handmade jewelry, too, all created by local craftsmen. Owner and collage artist Delisa Sage is really friendly and very helpful, which makes for my favorite kind of local shop. It’s also in a great neighborhood for walking around, and you can stop into Farley’s next door for coffee and a score of your favorite magazines. Vintage finds and magazines, just my idea of Heaven.

    Yes, that little section of Potrero Hill is a great place, a home away from home… Christopher’s Books, Chez Mama, then a cup and browse at Farley’s (I love the dogs that hang out there!).

    This shop is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for sharing. I want to browse for hours with a coffee. I think I would pick up those red elf slippers and a few of the silver stars. My daughter lives in SF, I will pass this along to her. This will be on my list during my next visit.

  11. Please share your ideas and inspire us to incorporate your ideas about collage into our workshop for girls. We are considering a week long camp this summer in upstate New York, as well as in the Bay Area. Email us with any sparks you might have! Very feminine! Very inspiring! and possibly very empowering creative beginnings for our ThinkPeaceWorkshop Girls!
