Needles and Pens in San Francisco is a combination DIY Goods, Zine Shop and Art Gallery. I recently took a visit to the shop, located in the Mission district and had fun browsing the wide variety of handmade goods.
The store boasts the widest variety of zines anywhere which are also available online. In the back of the shop is an art gallery that showcases exhibitions from various artists and photographers. Check the events calendar to see all the happenings.
