Aria

Antiques in North Beach & Chinatown

Find inspiration for your own North Beach epic poem on Aria's weathered wood counters, piled with anatomical drawings of starfish, castle keys lost in gutters a century ago, rusty numbers pried from French village walls and 19th-century letters still in their wax-sealed envelopes. Hours are erratic whenever owner and chief scavenger Bill Haskell is treasure-hunting abroad, so call ahead.
