San Francisco shopping

Hi.

I'll be staying downtown on 2nd/Folsom. Any ideas on shopping areas? Looking for mens/women's clothes, & souviners. Is there a Vietnamese store or area where I can buy a wedding gift? Any fun upbeat stores?
Has anyone been to Corte Madera? I want to check out the new Container Store. Thanks.

Check out Chinatown for interesting bargains.

Also, go to the Ross Dress for Less on Market Street in Time Square. It has great stuff at low prices. It has to compete w/ Macy's and Nordstrom's, so it has some great stuff.

I'm looking for one of a kind fun off beat places to shop. Ross is not the kind of store I want to shop at.

Corte Madera is just a mall - a nice mall, but just a mall - and it's not anywhere close to San Francisco.

If you want off-beat in the City - try the shops on Fillmore Street or Haight Street. There's also Chestnut Street, Noe Valley and the Castro (not so much for clothes, but off-beat shopping).

xxx, I'm sure we don't have Time Square anywhere close to Market Street.

Corte Madera is a nice upscale outdoor mall, but nothing overly special. Might be worth a stop if you're heading out to Napa.

Container Store is great, but not really worth a trip to Corte Madera.

Hayes Street, behind the Opera House and Davies, has some fun and unique shops also. Hayes Valley is one of the ciites more trendy neighborhoods. It also has some nice galleries.

The streets perpendicular to Castro such as 24th and 26th have some nice botiques for clothing.

I don't think luvmycats want to go to a mall with the typical Gap, Banana Republic, Macys, etc, which is what the Corte Madera mall is all about!

You may want to check out 24th street between Guerrero and Castro. There are some interesting stores there.

Go to Union Square for nicer shops, Saks, Neiman Marcus, etc; then a few streets north is China town. You can do both areas in one day and its a great walk. Make sure you have lunch in China town. Enjoy.
