Collage Gallery is a funky little shop up on San Francisco's Potrero Hill. It's the kind of spot I go to when I'm jonesing for a flea market and there's not a one in sight. Collage has a wonderful selection of vintage oddities, gift ideas and collectibles, like letters and old maps. There's wonderful handmade jewelry, too, all created by local craftsmen. Owner and collage artist Delisa Sage is really friendly and very helpful, which makes for my favorite kind of local shop. It's also in a great neighborhood for walking around, and you can stop into Farley's next door for coffee and a score of your favorite magazines. Vintage finds and magazines, just my idea of Heaven.
