In the window at Ver Unica: Perfectly pressed pleats, luscious leather carryalls, a delicate gold locket and cat-eye framed specs will have you reminiscing about your days spent laboring over reading, writing and arithmetic. Didn’t have those? Not to worry.
If hitting the town and not the library is more your scene, skip on over to the vintage-minded boutique’s second location, also on Hayes Street, where a pastel, floor-length gown adorned with shimmering detail reigns supreme. Stop in to either of Ver Unica’s two locations in the bustling neighborhood of Hayes Valley for a variety of reasonably priced, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, rare treasures, obscure trinkets and jewelry from local Bay Area designers such as 1228 and Metal Smith.
