Thrift Town enamel pin (RIP Thrift Town)

Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 12.33.22 PM

A big one from PSA Press. Here’s the official description:

RIP Thrift Town SF.

The iconic two story thrift store has closed its doors after 45 years in the Mission District of San Francisco (where PSA Press calls home). We recreated their sign in true vintage style for this special release.

In keeping with Thrift Town’s objective to give back to the community it served, proceeds from the sale of this pin will go to the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts, an organization that has been promoting, preserving, and developing cultural arts in the Mission District since 1977. ( www.missionculturalcenter.org )

Thrift Town helped to raise over $250M for local schools and nonprofit organizations in their communities.

Get yours here.

Now please enjoy these past posts about pins or Thrift Town…

PSA Press, forever turning iconic SF signage into wearable art, has another one for ya:

Golden Boy is one of San Francisco’s most iconic pizzerias. Since 1978 they have been essential to North Beach. We have recreated their famous neon hand sign for this special release.

Get it online here or at Golden Boy (home of the best square slices in town).

Danny Bowien chef chic

Fashion site Coveteur takes a look inside Danny’s closet. Click on each photo for a snippet of an interview with the acclaimed chef. Here’s how it starts:

I grew up in Oklahoma, I worked at Abercrombie & Fitch, had blue contacts and, like, N’Sync hair. I really tried to fit in, and then realized that wasn’t me. Now I really try to wear what I want and what inspires me.

Read on.

Twins pins!

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 2.02.07 PM

PSA Press debuts yet another entry in their long list of enamel pins celebrating San Francisco’s history! Here’s what they have to say about the Twins:

Marian and Vivian Brown were American identical twins and celebrity icons of San Francisco for more than 40 years. Known as the San Francisco Twins, they were renowned for their appearance in media with adorning signature identically bright snappy outfits and hats atop meticulously coiffed hair. We seek to honor them as they are one of the reasons we fell in love with San Francisco when we moved here over 10 years ago.

Fun Facts about the Brown sisters:

1. When asked if they ever wore pants, Marian said, “I have never owned a pair, I never intend to buy a pair even if they were made of silk!” 2. The twins’ favorite meal was a small combination pizza from Uncle Vito’s served at 4:30 in the afternoon.

3.The twins always wore fake fur. “They call it faux fur but I call it fake. F.A.K.E!” said Marian in one interview.

Vivian passed away on January 9, 2013 at age 85
Marian passed away on November 20, 2014 at age 87

It’s two separate pins sold as a set, so you can have one for you and one for your twin (or bestie). Gettem here.

A splendid holiday gift for the Missionite cinephile in your life. Available at the Roxie or via their website here.

(Made with help from the folks at PSA Press, makers of many other SF-themed enamel pins including a New Mission Theater marquee, some It’s-Its, the “Electric Skateboarding Is A Crime” pin, a very creepy Zodiac Killer, the classic Jimmy the Cornman, and a Doggie Diner head.)

(Also the “San Francisco Pin & Patch Pop-Up” is this Saturday afternoon at Mission Comics.)

Grand Moff Tarkin enamel pin

Local artist Doc Pop explains his latest creation:

Ever spent so much time searching for a thing, that you finally decided to just make it for yourself? I’m a big Star Wars fan and really wanted a high quality enamel pin based Grand Moff Tarkin’s imperial uniform. So I finally made some.

 Nice one, Doc! For sale here or at Mission: Comics & Art on Mission Street.
