Cliff's Variety *

Castro's hardware store and much more
Need a wig for Holloween? Rainbow flag for pride? Or simply a light fixture for your bathroom? Cliff's Variety, another Castro institution, stocks over 65,000 items, and is likely to have just what you are seeking, served up with the neighborhood vibe of a responsible independent store. Situated right in the middle of the key block of Castro Street, it could not be more convenient and instrumental.
