Best Place to Indulge a Skull Fetish San Francisco 2010 - Martin's 16th Street Emporium
Death's heads aren't just for Día de los Muertos. As well as the predictable array of skull-decorated lighters and jewelry, Martin's sells maracalike skull percussion sets and decorative bronze paperweights, plus hand-carved skulls made from real bone (relax, it's yak bone). But what is one's own private Golgotha without extras like wallets emblazoned with "Faster, Motherfucker" and a collection of vintage belt buckles, antique crucifixes, and some naughty art projects put together by the proprietor himself? Nothing, which is why the above share shelf space with the requisite skeletal sterling silver rings, earrings, pins, bracelets, and necklaces.
