The crisp notes of autumn are soon arriving! But, you don’t have to wait until Small Business Saturday in November to support local businesses. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites from post.script. in San Francisco. Eclectic and whimsical, their inventory emphasizes clean and modern designs, while celebrating the offbeat.
When buying from a small business, you anticipate the items will be crafted with special attention. It’s a great way to show your love and appreciation for a special person in your life – or, let’s be honest, as a way to celebrate ourselves. So whether it’s a gratitude gift or a pick-me-up you’re seeking, post.script. has something for you. The best part? All of the below are $40 or less.
