As much as we love daydreaming about big ticket buys, sometimes it's the little things that leave us the most satisfied. Especially when the items all fall under $30 and are made right here in the Bay. It's a win-win.
Which is why we've rounded up 30 must-haves that only look expensive — from a cork planter by an Oakland artist to an Everlane T-shirt you'll never take off. In case you're on the search to add a little something new to your arsenal or gift hunting for a special someone, these fit the (dirt cheap) bill. Plus, there's no buyer's remorse involved. Can't beat that.
