Upper Playground for Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Many of our friends and family have been effected by the incredible destruction Hurricane Sandy has placed on the East Coast. In support of the many people who have experienced loss of shelter and personal items, Upper Playground has teamed up once again with Fashion Delivers to send over $150,000 of UP clothing to families and residents in need. We couldn’t believe how much our contributions with Fashion Delivers helped make a difference during Katrina and the Haiti earthquake, and we wanted to help in any way we could with our friends on the East Coast.

We hope that everyone can take a chance to visit FashionDelivers.org to see what you can do to help.

Fashion Delivers battles the effects of poverty and natural disaster by supporting hundreds of community-based social service agencies throughout the U.S. and around the world. FD has distributed over $100 million of men’s and women’s clothing and home furnishings since founded in 2005, providing a vital service to agency partners and the people they support.

The SF Heritage Preservation Society "Barbary Coasters"

The San Francisco Heritage Preservation Society in conjunction with the California Historical Society presents the first edition of Barbary Coasters. Culled from a fine assortment of nineteenth century liquor and medicinal advertisements, the four-coaster set pays tribute to the debaucherous era of San Francisco’s Barbary Coast. During California’s Gold Rush, this notorious nine-block section of town was known for rowdy inebriates, shanghaiing criminals, snake oil salesmen, and scandalous ladies of the night.

The Barbary Coasters have been created in honor of CAHS’s annual Historic Libations Event, which celebrates turn of the century cocktail making in San Francisco. Each set is handmade in America and includes four antique-tile cork-backed coasters. Only 25 sets made.
