After hearing about the San Francisco vintage pop-up shop, Golden Collective, in Refinery29 I had to take a weekend off to check this place out. I’m not usually a huge vintage buyer, but when the opportunity comes up where I can get an awesome vintage piece for a reasonable price I am in. After driving around a bit, looking for the place, I noticed a vintage clothed mannequin sitting outside the corner of Fulton & Clayton and I said to myself this has to be the place. First off, the pop up shop is super small, which is expected. It’s in a tiny garage, but once you walk in there is a ton to look at from vintage blouses, coats, belts, shoes, and more. There are several racks of clothes that get updated with new product every few minutes or so as more clothes get bought.
I found out Golden Collective is put on once a month, always on the third Sunday, and consists of product from 5 ladies around the bay area. Some of the ladies have their own blogs or vintage stores while others are just genuine vintage lovers. I was able to meet 4 of them the weekend I went. Each of them have their own style and personality and you can tell they are die hard friends for life. I absolutely adored each of them.
If you have some time in May check them out. They post up their monthly dates on their Facebook page. Also, there is always new product so you never get stuck looking at last months stuff. Make sure to have money ready because I don’t think you’ll be leaving this place without buying something for your wardrobe.
