Located next to Four Barrel in what's becoming the hottest strip on Valencia (between 14th and 15th streets), The Common is a good place for couples to come through with mugs in hand. What's in store for them? Sturdy and classic canvas bags by Wm. J. Mills & Co., stationery by Oakland-based Carrot & Stick Press, and made-to-order (and off-the-rack) button-downs by house label Taylor Stitch that make up a bulk of the inventory.
The Common, 383 Valencia Street (between 15th and 14th streets); 415-322-8773.
