Mister SF best remembers this spot as the Headlines gift shop. There was one here and another at 557 Castro. In the early ’90s we all got our David Spada Freedom Rings at Headlines! Shoe Pavilion was a Sherman Oaks-based chain that operated from 1979-2008. As things change and remain the same, the location is once again a shoe store. “If you didn’t get it at Shoe Pavilion you paid too much” was the company’s advertising slogan. (I always preferred Payless, so I guess I overpaid.)
