Harry’s Second Hand Warehouse -- Santa Rosa

OK- so this isn’t in San Francisco. However, it’s close enough to deserve a mention.

This is not the place for shoppers who need tidy merchandising. It’s a mess. Shopping at Harry’s Second Hand Warehouse is more like hunting for treasure than shopping, just the kind of shopping I like. It looks like the contents of multiple Grannies’ houses all jammed together. Old TVs share space with Russell Wright style dinnerware. Hundreds of dining room chairs share space with collections of Readers Digest condensed books. Vintage appliances share shelf space with odd bits of crockery. I’m told new stuff is added all the time. It’s definitely worth the drive.
