Talk Shop

Gift shops: typically, they’re ticky-tacky crapyards full of doddering blue-hairs, feckless clerks and sticky-fingered knee-highs clutching “I Heart” teddy bears.

Luckily, this is not your typical gift shop.

Introducing The Headlands Shop, the “souvenir experience” from the nimble-fingered craftsmen at Headlands Center for the Arts, online now.

You know the HCA — that military-fort-cum-artist-asylum in the picturesque Marin Headlands (they also have sporadic open houses for the public; you should go).

But if you’d rather just look like you’ve gone, shop the online store.

The highlights:

Military-inspired leather rucksacks from Small Trade, special edition Heath ceramics and a picnic chopping block with leather scabbard from Scott Tal.

Next time you cross the bridge for the Headlands, you’ll be kitted out like a grizzled veteran.

Nothing typical about that.
