Killing a few hours near SFO

Jump to last reply

I arrive at SFO nearly 4 hours prior to my colleague.
I'll be picking up a rental car and waiting for her to arrive.
I figure I would rather kill time away from the a/p that sit and wait.

So, I thought downtown Palo Alto might be an easy place to kill a few hours... but hoped that you nice Fodors folks might have some additional considerations.
I am interested in shopping.
Preferably local/boutique type places... not too expensive. I am not interested in high end jewelry, for example, but love handmade sterling items.
Here are some of the things I would be interested in:
- Handcrafted bath/beauty products
- Candles
- Fragrance
- Handmade jewelry (but not beading type shops)
- Affordable art (affordable to me is under 100.00)
- Handcrafted food items/cheese
- ROCK shops, minerals, semiprecious rocks, etc...
I like places like downtown Orange, Cedros Design District in Solana Beach, Balboa Island, etc... you know, just a street with independant shops of all sorts.

I arrive at 330pm and need to be back at SFO around 715pm.
This is on a Monday, which also may be a consideration as many small shops are closed on Mondays.
I am comfortable driving around the bay area and the traffic is no shock.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!!!
