Oaklandish

Oaklandish finally opened a storefront for their goods in downtown Oakland.  Previously they sold out of a van, a bus parked in various places around town, and selected retail venues.  All goods are made in California and the t-shirts are printed in Oakland.
They design t-shirts and accessories that riff on Oakland's name.  They also provide the same services for other cities across the country.  This business contributes to artistic and community projects with the ethos of building "Local Love."

  3. Clever name but a limited market. What could we call a similar store - St. LOUdirous?

  4. Sales must have been good enough out of the mobiles to upgrade to more overhead. It's a clever brand. Wonder whether more is sold to locals or tourists. Local love is good.

  5. The name made me smile, though I thought at first that it was a restaurant.

    I apologize for disappearing yet again. My husband and went on a long road trip (I didn't have time to create scheduled posts) and when we got home a week ago, we discovered that we didn't have our land line or internet connection. Despite following up everyday (sometimes twice a day) no service crew has yet come to our house. I am getting serious internet withdrawal symptoms...

  6. Interesting post. I'm delighted to find another St. Louisan listed here. Love finding blogs by hometown folks.
