Re: “Pollinate Farm and Garden

Imagine not having to order backyard veggie / fruit growing supplies online--most likely they've got it! A dream-come-true for anybody who takes growing food in their yards seriously, or even semi-seriously. THE place to buy stone fruit trees grafted on rootstock that will survive oak root fungus (a huge problem in these parts) or not-so-common veggie and herb varieties. Super-knowledgeable owners; decent prices; airy, comfortable place for workshops as well as perusing. Best urban farming/food growing workshops around.

Re: “East Bay Nursery

Get your out-of-the-ordinary veggie and herb starts here! They also carry fruit trees from L.E. Cooke and Four Winds Nursery. They are also one of the only brick-and-mortar stores around here where you can buy the best, longest-lasting gardening gloves on the planet: Woman'swork High Performance Working Gloves.

Re: “Books Inc. Alameda

The Alameda shop on Park Street has a great selection of greeting cards as well as books and other intelligent amusements. Low-key, friendly, airy ambience.

Re: “Blick Art Materials

Simply put, this is where I can get everything I need--as a practicing artist--online or in the store, especially the University Avenue store in Berkeley. Always helpful staff, fun to trade technical tips with. My only complaint would have to involve Holbein oil pastels, as in: they don't carry them, either open stock or packaged sets.

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!
