Best Gift Shop San Francisco 2004 - Kamei Restaurant Supply Co.
This store specializes in beautiful Asian ceramics at incredibly affordable prices. We've stocked our kitchen with its wares, but we're fondest of a set of pale blue-and-green shallow dishes, at $1.49 each, that we use as coasters or saucers for condiments, and a pale-green-pottery lidded canister, for $4.99. The stock is amazing; in addition to ceramics you'll find utensils, collapsing umbrellas, sleek wooden boxes, and handsome woven brooms. Kamei features teapots, boxed sake sets, bamboo steamers, rice cookers, knives, and fabric lengths. We bought beautiful red-and-black lacquer wonton spoons for 49 cents each. And we find this place ideal for picking up original items for last-minute house gifts.
