Peace, Love and Vintage Shopping

We went to Haigth Ashbury yesterday evening just in time for some shopping and people watching. There's what the guide (link above) says about this neighbourhood:

"If there's any area of San Francisco that evokes
images of the long-gone '60s hippie culture, the
Haight is it. Fragments of that flower-power,
incense-burning, acid-dropping, tie-dye-wearing,
peace-and-love-vibing era can be purchased at smoke
shops and Eastern-influenced outlets bearing names
like Dreams of Kathmandu, Pipe Dreams and The Love
of Ganesha. But save for a few hippie relics, the Haight
today is a whole new scene. Exclusive boutiques,
high-end vintage-clothing shops, second-hand stores,
Internet cafés and hip restaurants have all settled in,
making the Haight one of San Francisco's
commercial centers."

PS. We went to this store Wasteland (1660 Haight, San Francisco) and got a pair of boots for each.


  1. Hey! That's exactly where we're going to live in 2013! That is if my dream comes true. And if we are still here on this planet... And if California still exists...

  2. Nooo way!!! You'd think there's no cooler place ever to live than NYC/Manhattan and then, boom!!! Congrats! Let's hope everything works out for you, it sounds very exciting...
