Farewell Favorites: Planetweavers
Planetweavers was the import gift boutique with locations at 1573 Haight Street and 518A Castro Street. The "world goods" store was a popular depot for artisan candles, yoga mats, tranquility fountains, tiles, trays, toys, books, metal sculpture, and just about anything that might remind shoppers of the gifts they could get for pennies on the dollar while traveling abroad if they didn't mind schlepping the stuff home. Owner Andreas Blachian consolidate his two stores into the Castro location after 17 years, but sales continued a long decline. The Castro store closed on February 29, 2008.
