30 Locally-Made Bargain Buys You Need In Your Life

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.
