Re: “Stella Studio

A hidden gem. Such a great collection of designs. I would recommend highly. Don't forget the jewelry and handbags. All products are such high quality.

Re: “Acme House of Music

Excellent service, with a quirky vibe. The owner is a genuine entrepreneur who loves both people and music. The guitar section is by far my favorite selection in the shop. Stop by for a good convo and good music. I strongly recommend it.

Re: “Dharma Publishing Bookstore

This bookstore carries a lot more than Buddhist texts. They have a variety of books on meditation, yoga, healing, etc. Also, some wonderful children's books. They also have a selection of Tibetan art "thankas" on canvas and poster paper. There are numerous items from Nepal such as singing bowls, incense, and repousses. They also have many kinds & colors of meditation cushions. A wonderful trove of spiritual treasures.

Re: “Stella Studio

Stella's clothes are designed to make women look and feel beautiful. And shopping in the Stella Studio is a great experience! They'll help you put together outfits that will flatter you and express your individual style. I purchased a few versatile pieces that are perfect for business travel - and will be back for more to round out my wardrobe!

Re: “Stella Studio

Great clothes and really nice salespeople. The clothes are very versatile - can be worn to all types of occasions, casual or more dressy. They are flattering, comfortable, and unique. I recommend going to the store for style advice and taking advantage of the sale.

Re: “Sola Lucy Montclair

Fab store. I always love dropping by to see what they have. New stuff is always coming in and it's well curated. Friendly staff too. They don't have attitude. I'm always greeted with a smile. Even when they tell me they have to pass on something. I'd shop there regularly even if I didn't consign! So much of my wardrobe is from them now I rarely shop at big box stores. They have another store in Berkeley too, but I really love Montclair!

Re: “Bibliomania

This is an excellent bookstore. Jean and Daryl are very knowledgeable and helpful. I always find something at Bibliomania. Jean knows what I read and will e-mail me or tell me when we cross paths in the neighborhood about a book that might interest me. Bibliomania is conveniently located a block from the 19th Street BART station on Broadway, and there is plenty to do in the neighborhood, including the Fox Theater, Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, and Fox Square Park. I highly recommend Bibliomania.

Re: “Paco Collars

paco collars are the best collars I have seen, they will customise whatever you want, they are well made and long lasting, paco collars was a dream to work with. I look forward to ordering more stuff from them. I want new leashes and a belt to match my dogs collar.

Re: “Owl & Company Bookshop

The phone number is wrong, it is 510.788.5821. Also, it is NOT a "little" shop but the largest by space and titles on the Avenue and one of the largest used bookshops in the EAST BAY, COVERING ALL SUBJECTS. Also the web page is down now but will be back up soon.

You can see a short video of the shop at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EC_WdLmMbc

Re: “Mr. Mopps’ Children’s Books & Gifts

Perfect place for toys and books for all ages A great range of classic and new products that cover all interests and abilities. This is a treasure chest for playthings that are well worthwhile. Easy to find and park and browse to locate that special gift for every child (and adult) on your list. A great store.

Re: “EiWear

Friendly and chic... not often do those two qualities share common ground, but at E iWEAR, it's different. Jennifer and Ernst are super sweet and the selection of styles is amazing. Best of all, none of the frames come from the global eye-wear giant that dictates prices and puts small guys out of business. All the frames at E iWEAR come from small manufactures, with one of them being just a few miles away in Hayward, CA. I highly recommend them!

Re: “Tease Me Boutique

I took my boy friend and picked up some lingerie. They also have stockings and toys. It was such a refreshing experience, the store has a contempo style and everything they sale is current. They have lingerie that I haven't seen anywhere else.

Re: “Makin Endz Meet

I love this little store. When ever I am looking for that something to add that perfect touch to my fit I find it there. Most of the time I don't even know what exactly it is I am looking for until I see it. I have purchased three vintage clutches, a vintage black velvet dress, Crochet scarves, a fedora hot and a sweet leather jacket to name a few. The people there are down to earth and actually keep me in mind when they get things in I LOVE THAT!

Re: “Alameda Point Antiques Faire

This is so huge, you can't believe it! I don't think I've ever finished it due to its size and the number of vendors. There are probably over 1000, to be honest. And each one is very unique. You'll see everything from vintage clothing to tools, furniture jewelry, plants, European items, Asian items, Native American, Africa, textiles and beads from Eastern parts of the world, and so on. It's a tremendous place to shop. Just bring your walking shoes for sure. The one drawback is lack of seating for when you finally take a snack/lunch break! I suppose if I went before 9 a.m. when the entrance price is higher than $5, I'd see the whole thing, but my feet still wouldn't survive! It's still worth going to. Store up your money and have some fun. There's an ATM just outside the entrance gate too. Some vendors take credit cards. I typically pay with cash. Getting in on a nice sunny morning is a chore due to the traffic. Same thing for when you leave. It'll take what seems to be a lifetime just getting onto Webster Street in Alameda so you can get back onto 880 and head home. By then you're totally pooped! But you'll have so many neat goodies to enjoy once you get there!
