At one time, Scotland Gifts USA had stores in the Crocker Galleria, San Francisco, and Jack London Square in Oakland. However, these stores were closed when the organisation opted to focus all its attention on online shopping channels of which ThistleFlowersUSA.com is one of the most popular.
Scotland Gifts USA is a sister company of Scottish Gifts UK - a long established family company committed to bringing you a superb range of beautiful Scottish gifts all the way from Aberdeen in Bonnie Scotland.
ThistleFlowersUSA.com is the first official online shopping channel of Scotland Gifts USA and other shopping channels will follow during 2010.
To give you a flavor of the goods which will be on offer, we recap (below) with pictures and text on the former stores in San Francisco and Oakland. Meanwhile, we explain here how Thistle Flowers USA. allows you to order directly from Aberdeen our magnificent and intriguing range of stunning multi-use handmade silk-like thistle flowers, corsages, tartan ribbons and bows via our online shopping channel, ThistleFlowersUSA.com., which provides deliveries throughout North America and Canada - supplied directly from our depot in Las Vegas, USA.
Scotland Gifts UK opened its first store in the USA in August, 2000 at Jack London Square, Oakland, California, followed by a second store at the Crocker Galleria in San Francisco
Named after the world-famous author, Jack London, who lived in the city of Oakland in the late 1800s, Jack London Square has become a well-loved and popular destination for both locals and visitors.
Jack London is best known for the novels he wrote about the Alaskan wilderness such as, The Call of the Wild, White Fang and The Son of the Wolf. If you are interested in the history of the region, the Jack London Museum, along with the Oakland Museum of California, Ebony Museum and the Museum of Children's Art, are all conveniently located in or around Jack London Square.
A unique National Historical Landmark, Roosevelt's USS Potomac or "The Floating White House" remains at the north end of Jack London Square.
Located in the heart of the financial district at 50 Post, San Francisco, the Crocker Galleria is located close to the Union Square area and is very much the place to eat shop and get things done.
