Shopper’s Diary: Spartan Opens in San Francisco

October 26, 2011

When we discovered recently that Currie Person, owner of the Austin, Texas-based shop Spartan, had opened an outpost in San Francisco, we immediately dashed over to check it out. Located in Valencia Bottoms, the fashionable and burgeoning stretch between 15th and Market streets, Spartan is part of a retail collective called The Voyager Shop, anchored by hipster clothing store Revolver and including the Mollusk Gear Shop and the Michael Rosenthal Art Gallery.
