Well, Ciwt can officially retire her white gloves and gift closet. 150 years of San Francisco shopping history and specially selected, classy (and pricey!) gifts are going their way. Eg, away at a bankruptcy-going out of business sale. Once upon a time when she worked in San Francisco one college summer, Ciwt would drool over the exotic, 'tasteful' gifts at Gumps during her lunch hour (or was it half-hour) and imagine all the City swells who were presenting them to each other.

Looking today Ciwt had no drools, and it was clear to see Gumps was from a by-gone and kind of peculiar shopping era. But sad too...
