What You'll Get

When you look at art, you expand your mind, but when you integrate art into your life, you distract those around you from noticing your mind's unusually expanded dimensions. Keep your giant mind from feeling self-conscious with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of progressively artistic merchandise from Upper Playground. Today's deal is only redeemable via Upper Playground's online store, and its value may be applied to shipping costs.

San Francisco-based Upper Playground gives customers an eclectic selection of artistically oriented apparel, housewares, prints, and more. Wrap your ribs in a T-shirt decked out in the surreal designs of artist Sam Flores ($24), or pick up a jet-black track jacket ($70) to complement your distinctive all-sprint walking style. Cicero fedoras ($48) provide a stylish way to hide bad haircuts and skull-top wine stains, while Dora Drimalas' butterfly shower curtains ($40) channel the ethos of nature's most sanitary aviator. Because walls, statistically speaking, are 10 times less likely to come tumbling down when tastefully decorated, Upper Playground also peddles a plethora of prints from artists including Carl Nyman and Herbert Baglione.

Upper Playground's easily navigable online marketplace lets shoppers comb through the extensive stock with ruthless efficiency and jovial good humor. A convenient magnification tool (available for most items) gives users a close-up view of every inch of their purchase, while a 14-day return policy allows them to place their order with the calm confidence of a psychic stockbroker.


Upper Playground has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, and nearly 200 Yelpers give it a 4.5-star average rating:

  • While these cats have posts in SF, Sac, Portland, Seattle and even Mexico City... wearing their threads makes me feel like a real local. Whether or not I actually look like a local sporting their wears is a whole other question... but at least I feel like I'm contributing a small slice of my expendable income to a solid local operation like Upper Playground. – ruggy j., Yelp

About Upper Playground

The sharp design and bold imagery of Upper Playground's online boutique speaks to the character of its inventory. The San Francisco Bay–based design house empowers progressive artists by emblazoning their works on urban-chic apparel and housewares. Functional artwork ranges from decorative shower curtains to wall graphics with hauntingly hip silhouette designs or brightly colored pixilated imagery. Artwork and prints primarily depict nature and Americana, distorting common imagery into minimalist interpretations or bizarrely complex motifs. In keeping with housewares, Upper Playground's apparel also depicts uncommon designs. The brand's walrus mascot appears repeatedly on articles for women and men, bearing its tusks on tees and wide-billed caps that shelter brilliant ideas until they grow to full development.
