Who We Are

We are an independent retail shop and artist studio featuring locally made goods (and plants!) for you and your home. We are a space for San Francisco to come together and support local art and crafts. Whether you are looking for a gift for a special someone or a place to learn a new skill in one of our workshops - Common Space is here for you!

Hi! I'm Anna

"Common Space provides an amazing venue to connect with others socially while learning new skills and crafts. It is particularly cool because the crafts are not old fashioned, but rather have a cool modern vibe that means you'll actually enjoy and use the items you make."

Preston Burnes


"So much fun!"

Our Mission

is to support local artist and makers & help everyone reconnect to the creative inside of them. We were all experts in play and imagination when we were children. Creating time and space to reconnect with that piece of us and play is what we are all about.

We are inviting our inner child out to play. If it is not fun, you are doing it wrong. 

Fun First

Creating is about the process, not the outcome. Don't be attached to the outcome - its not that important anyhow.

No Promises

Always and to everyone. To one another & the planet.

Be Kind

Workshops & Events

We host a wide range of events in our little shop. Everything from talks with local artists and makers to crafting workshops to 'Wine Wednesday' a free event hosted the fourth Wednesday of every month.

Some events are open to the public while others are just for Friends of Common Space - our membership program with perks like discounts on workshops + in-store as well as first access to artist talk tickets and more.
