It's time for the very first Racked SF Vintage 38: your guide to the city's all-around best vintage stores. We've done our best to cover a wide array of neighborhoods and prices—from Mission boutiques with $5 racks to park-side shops that have a few more zeros on their price tags. Many of the stores will also buy your quality used clothing and accessories. To keep things manageable, we excluded flea markets as well as pure furniture stores, but you will see shops that have home goods sprinkled in.
In the map that follows, you'll find a mix of high end vintage boutiques that specialize in Dior and Chanel, along with shops that deliver the '80s concert tees that you crave. Shop both and create the perfect high-low look for yourself. And let us know your favorites—or any we may have missed—in the comments section. Also please note: the shops are in no particular order other than being arranged vaguely north to south on the map.
