Owner description: Downtown is a boutique that presents the most underground designers of ready-to-wear, footwear, jewelry, bags and accessories. From Tokyo to Antwerp, Paris to Rome, our collections are crafted in very limited quantities, of exclusive fabrics and leathers, in ateliers where the work is done almost entirely by hand. Expect to discover something new and unexpected with every visit. The hard-to-find designers carried include Agatha NYC Leather, ma+, Guidi, LGB/If Six Was Nine, and Lost and Found.

Downtown is a great place to spend the afternoon for shopping and walking around. There are several venders downtown and the trolly is a great experience.

If you're planning on visiting San Francisco, you may want to reconsider. There are some awesome tourist areas and events to attend in this great city but it’s really changed over the years and now it’s impacting the visitor's enjoyment. You should be aware of the terrible homeless problem that exists in this area and the many mentally ill people that you’re likely to come into contact as you walk around. My wife and I were visiting some shops in the area and it looked like something from a movie set. People were sleeping on the sidewalks, church steps and benches. Fast food places were refuges for many of the street people. Panhandlers could be found on almost every street asking for your money. A few interestiing facts: You may not be able to light up a cigarette, but you have a green light to smoke pot. There are more dogs registered with the city than children registered at schools in this city. The lack of families and children has had a profound impact on expounding the values that made this city the great place it once was. This appears to be a city without the morale leadership that is needed to care for its people.
