Best hardware ++ shop in the Noe, Castro, Dolores neighbourhoods. Super friendly staff and old world courtesies. Always fun shopping for your next DIY project. Fun fact: Cliff’s annex has a fully loaded section for needle work including fabric and other fun stuff.

Amazon sent me a Sia bob wig for a Kurt Cobain Cobain costume and I had to find a new wig last minute for a party. Thank you so much to the fellas at Cliff's Variety that helped me decide which wig would be best for my costume, hope you see this because the costume turned out great! :)

I love this place. It’s like they went to the Big Internet Store, sorted through all of the garbage and picked the gems, and then still kept the good prices. And there are people who work there you can talk to! Who are helpful! And nice! We go here for everything—hardware, paint, decor, kids’ birthday presents, fabric for costumes, housewarming gifts, really just everything.
