New Owners at SF’s Rare Device And Discounts for You


As soon as you set foot in Rare Device on Market Street, you instantly feel like you’re getting schooled in design. If you’ve been, you’ve likely had to forcefully restrain yourself from drooling on their sleek, retro-modern kitchen wares, minimalist electronics, coffee table books and even their good-looking cosmetics lines. For those waiting for the right time to splurge, now’s your chance to pounce: the keenly-curated shop, which recently came under the new ownership of Giselle and Phurba Gyalzen, is throwing a grand re-opening party.

From 11 am-6 pm this Saturday, Feb. 19th, the first-time shop owners are fueling the festivities with refreshments and encouraging  customers to donate books or school supplies for the Cambodian Childen’s Book Project, which will get you 10% off your entire purchase. Who can resist shopping for a good cause? Local artist Mati McDonough is also rumored to be live-painting a mural in the newly-expanded kids section of the store. And for your browsing pleasure, check out the newest goods to hit the shelves, like items from Oots Lunch Boxes, Glob Natural Paint, Yellow Label Rattles, and Canvas Home Accessories. See you there!

Rare Device, 1845 Market Street, 415-863-3969.
