We're Opening a Shop!

Big news!  We're finalizing the details to open a real storefront in Temescal Alley, Oakland.  

At the turn of the century our little (emphasis on little) shop was originally a stable.  Later the horse stalls were turned into carriage houses and most recently into tiny shops.

Here's what the inside looks like.

We love the exposed brick, the built-in rustic pipe shelving, and the concrete floors. And of course, we plan to do some work to make it our own.

We couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of this thriving community of small shops full of artisans and creatives. 

To read more about Temescal Alley, see The San Francisco Chronicle's recent article "Oakland's Hip and Vibrant Temescal Alley Takes Off.

One last thing, since our business is no longer located in the Claremont area of Oakland, we've decided to change our name.

Henceforth it will be "Walrus."

We have changed the blog title, and are working on changing our blog address to match.  Details to come!
