SFO's new Terminal 3 (aka the United Terminal) opens to the public tomorrow. But on Saturday, we took a sneak peek at the new space and all the retail goodness that it holds. Although the majority of the stores are standard SFO fare (like TechShowcase, XpresSpa, and Skyline News), the pop-up space's two stores pack a strong punch of local flavor. The art and the collectibles at the Collector Art Shop are easy to add to carry-ons (and definitely don't scream "last-minute, airport gift). And the oils and lotions from McEvoy Ranch are the same as the ones at the store's Ferry Building locations—but without the fuss of having to pass the liquids through security. These pop-ups change out in six months a year, but the space will always play host to local businesses. Now, there's no excuse to board a United flight without a few mementos to remind you of where you've left your heart.
