San Francisco, California
If you're looking for stocking stuffers for some of your retro-tech-loving friends and family, online and San Francisco-based store Gama-Go has everything from a measuring tape shaped like an old cassette to spatulas shaped like guitars. Chris Edmundson, Greg Long, and West Coast artist Tim Biskup started Gama-Go started in the early 2000s with T-shirt apparel, and the company's since made a name for itself in the giftware arena.
Although Biskup left in 2006, Gama-Go still sells his original Gama Goon character, and each season they produce a new collection of limited-edition T-shirts and novelty items for the home, office, and kitchen.
In 2009, they opened their first flagship store in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco, and they continue to sell their products through their website and through a network of 100-plus retail partners.
