San Francisco: Gump’s


Gump’s  135 Post St./Kearny St., 2 blks. to Union Square.  Opened in 1861, when clipper ships brought in the inventory, this is the oldest store in San Francisco.  It is known for stocking fine oriental imports, carries the city’s largest selection of fine china and crystal, and has an eye-popping collection of American crafts.  Bath products, women’s clothing, and home furnishings are also in the mix.  It is a superb spot to find unusual gifts.  The store is beautifully decorated for Christmas; and be sure to stop in then to view the exceptional ornaments.  A personal shopper is available.
