Gifts & Souvenirs in The Mission, Dogpatch & Potrero Hill

Salvador Dalí probably would've shopped here for all his taxidermy and gardening needs. Get a surrealist home makeover with animal-skull puppets, terrariums sprouting from lab beakers and teddy-bear heads mounted like hunting trophies. The kids' shop down the street (at 766 Valencia) maximizes playtime with volcano-making kits, shadow-puppet theaters and solar-powered dollhouses. Check DIY taxidermy and amulet-making workshop dates online.
