It may seem early to start thinking about gifts, but is it really? This week brings us into November, and we’re accustomed to the weeks flying by after that. With that in mind, there’s no time like the present (sorry) to start collecting locally-made giftables for the special people on your list. A current fave: bath and body products from San Francisco’s Etta and Billie.

Along with the fun of Columbus Day sales from many local shops, the week ahead brings an assortment of trunk shows and shopping opps closely aligned with the indie fashion ethos. The lion’s share take place on Friday evening, when you’ll find the Calivintage Pop-Up at Pretty Penny in Oakland, as well as a fashion-filled birthday fete for Wonderland SF owner Irene Hernandez-Feiks, an Elizabeth Street Cosmetics & Honey Cooler Handmade Trunk Show and – also in Oakland – a Voce Keen Trunk Show at Hawthorn.
