Cute neighborhood gift and trinket store. – One of my favorite places to go when I need nothing but still end up buying everything. Cute little gift shop with cards, jewelry, baby clothing, wrapping paper, candles, old school vintage candy, and random trinkets that will definitely brighten someones day.
I wouldn't say I would come in here specifically to find something, but if I wander in, I always find something unique for someone that I didn't even know they would need.
Always try to stop by whenever you're in the neighborhood. This store sells tons of nicknacks and kooky gifts like flannel pjs and cards. I especially enjoy their great selection of gift cards, the kind you will never find at made by Hallmark.
Stylish, urban and cute, this adorable Sunset boutique offers everything from cards to accessories. – The Scene
Wishbone is the sort of store that beckons even if you aren't in the mood to shop. Owners Gay Lam and Cory Vilano consider their irresistibly cute store a modern-day "dime store," which is why you'll find a wall of candy near the card section, and silly ribbons that exclaim "I'm a Big Girl" next to the candles and bath soaps.
Filled with hip, urban goodies like adorable Paul Frank wallets, pricey Kate Spade day planners and Doggie Diner T-shirts, this little house of style caters to a funky, accessory-savvy crowd. Lam and Vilano handpick an array of eclectic items, and encourage shoppers to purchase knickknacks they never knew they needed. If you're not careful, you'll walk away with an alluring set of mushroom-shaped salt and pepper shakers.

Fantastic Finds! – I love Wishbone, I cannot go into the store without spending over $200. I'm totally addicted. They have the coolest and most unique items, and I always get compliments on practically anything I buy here. When I go into the store, I'm just so happy looking at all the stuff they have. They constantly get new stuff in, and the popular stuff goes fast. Great staff and fun shop.
If you got the dough, go here! – Fun, cool, quirky, well designed, hard-to-find products! Books, cards, candles, gadgets, toys. Great for gifts, or a self indulgent treat, or just to look around. I find it a little pricey here, but overall worth it.
addicting – Whenever I walk by Wishbone, I always get drawn in. You just want to explore the whole place... everything is either too cute or too expensive. Oh well. It's fun just to be inside!
Hip Stuff – Great place to get kooky birthday gifts--they have everything from cute jewelry to snuggly flannel pajamas to baby Ts, makeup, candles, stationery, scarves, handbags and retro candy. best place to get hip birthday and other occasion cards!
One of my all-time favorites – This unusual store is probably my favorite place to shop in San Francisco. The owners were way ahead of the whole Paul Frank thing a couple of years ago, and they stay ahead of other trends too ... a fact which is nicely offset by their aisle full of nostalgic candy. Find items ranging from jewelry to greeting cards to t-shirts to vases.
