San Franpsycho–A Store For Your Inner Goth Child Vintage Look

San Franpsycho is the store for your unique make-over. It carries many hand designed items that have a twist & an edge that you won’t find in mainline stores–the very name of their business foretells a shopping experience going beyond a ‘one size fits all’ mode of thinking. You can get your skull poster right here.

Here is the address information for this store of unusual & fun merchandise.

Sometimes there is even a delivery truck emblazoned with their distinguished logo & branding parked in front. I don’t see it too frequently, so I am guessing that they keep busy delivering their products with the unique take on the Goth look.

Here are some point & click shots of the delivery truck.

This would be almost as much fun as driving a hearse.  The design is just plain crazy.  How could you not just love this?

They replaced eye candy with skull candy, well, sort of–another detail of the delivery truck.

Just bone up on your parking skills & you could be their delivery person!

They did a fine job in terms of their branding–the logo is simple, yet very identifiable as being ‘in The City.’ They find clever ways of repeating their logo on various products for the young & young at heart.

Well designed & used on many of their products.  "If you are going to San Franpsycho, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair..."

This skull poster was one of the first things I bought @ San Franpsycho.  It was just the perfect thing for Halloween & Dia de los Muertos. It will be back.

The fellows who worked in this store were quite nice & helpful. Never met a Goth I did not like. Not sure if they use this term for their products, but it seems to fit. They were friendly, let me browse the store without making me feel as if I were an intruder & I found some fun things that fit into my budget. So, if ever you are in a Gothic mode of dress, here is a good place to stimulate your energy & the economy.

Drink in the logo--if you are a vampire, you now have a place for your overflow on a good night.

If inclined, you may co-ordinate your shirts with your drinking glasses or vampire storage.  There are always lots of non-conformist possibilities @ San Franpsycho.

For petroleum-free transportation, check out their skateboards–They have retained the logo, but embellished the City with cursive calligraphy, straight from Charlemagne’s Era!

This is where they do a lot of their shirt artwork, right in the store.
