History

From the dark and gritty to the light and beautiful, from the rolling hills of Twin Peaks to the flats of the Mission, from the deep dark corners to the wide open spaces, we love all parts of San Francisco.

Local Take is our love letter to San Francisco. All the beauty and creativity naturally occurring in the Bay Area is forever captured in the many creations of our amazing local artists and designers.

There's an enormous amount of talent in this beautiful city of ours and we wanted to create a space that celebrated the art that is created here, and the artists that make it. Some of it is San Francisco themed, some of it is not… but it’s all gorgeous, unique and made in the Bay Area.

Local Take is where you can:

  • Find gifts for yourself and others
  • Bring your out of town guests so they can find their perfect souvenir - the kinds of souvenirs people will actually love and use
  • Decorate the walls of your apartment

Come on by and we’ll help you write your own love letter to this city that we love so much.


Since opening in the Castro in May 2013, Local Take has been enthusiastically embraced by its neighbors, locals and tourists. So much so that we were able to open a second location in the Inner Sunset in April 2016.  With an ever growing collection of products, Local Take currently showcases over 150 Bay Area artists and designers.  We look forward to supporting even more local artists and designers in the years to come!
