Re: “Highest-Paying Clothing Buyers

The people that work at the Crossroads on Shattuck are so rude. I absolutely hate doing business with them. Why have an attitude when you work in a used clothing Berkeley? They act like they are working at Chanel on Rue Cambon! Enough with the sour attitude already. Next.

Re: “Best Chinese Sports Medicine

Don't ever go to him for injuries! My mom fell and dislocated her shoulder and goes to see this guy. She goes to see him continuously for 20+ days without any improvement, and Dr. Tang told her to go to the hospital. In hospital, we found out that my mom's shoulder is never put back in place, and because of the delay of proper treatment, she has to have a surgery to correct her shoulder.
This guy claims himself as a doctor and has a lot of licenses on the wall, but those are all fake licenses.

Re: “Most Community-Minded Sex Shop

I have had the priveledge to enter into this shop. I was suprised about the content of it because I was taken there as a suprise. I am not a stranger to "Toy Stores" but this place was wholly different. It was classy, tasteful, and intruiging. There were more than just sex toys and the owner is very nice. I was not nervous. I did not feel exposed. My shopping experience that day was relaxed and enjoyable. I even bought postcards!! If you haven't been to Feelmore510, stop by. You won't be sorry

Re: “Best Untapped, Warehouse-Size Thrift Store

As far as I know; and I love the thrift store, so if I'm wrong I would like to know, Thrift Town is the only good large thrift store left. Their prices are reasonable...who could afford to shop at Goodwill??!!!, and they always have some special discount going, whether coupons or color sale tags, or sale days, theres' always a way to spend/save. I love the one in El Sobrante!

Re: “Best Cheap Haircut

Hello, I have another "well-kept-secret-address" for cheap and high-quality haircuts. It is Ivania Salon, 1906 University Ave @ Martin Luther King. The lady who runs it has 25+ years of experience and used to work with Vidal Sassoon himself but she's very modest about it. She's very nice and takes great care of her clients in addition to being an expert in her field. Check out her raving reviews on yelp. Men haircuts start at $18 & up, Women haircuts start at $25 & up. She does hair cuts and coloring.

Re: “Best Hydroponics Store

Although I enjoyed reading your article, I found "gardenenthusiest"'s comment more interesting (sorry :) )

I knew about BIG's wide range of products and stuff (I too am a fan of hydroponics systems and the alikes) but I never met such "rude" people like gardenenthusiest mentions. Never mind anyway. Just keep posting the good stuff.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

I am so happy EBE finally found Wine Mine. A real Oakland Treasure.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

I'm a wine snob. Dave Sharp is knowledgable about his wines without being insufferable. The Wine Mine has a great selection of snob wines at reasonable prices. The best part.......Even though I may not spend a lot of money, Dave makes me feel like a special customer each time I go into his shop.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

The Wine Mine and Dave Sharp have changed my wine buying experience. I am a frugal, barbarian of a wine buyer. I mostly look for a good value with an occasional premium purchase. Dave will often "Downsell" me to a less expensive value. He will gleefully order a case or two of odd flavors that I think suit my taste and take a chance that some other wine barbarian may like them too. He cheerfully exchanges wine that just didn't suit my taste (not an empty bottle however.... he's not that cheerful) And he remembers enough about my past purchases (pretty smart guy) to steer me toward a new bottle in his ever changing inventory. The Wine Mine is just a HeckOfAWineStore.... cheers... DaveL.

Re: “Best Wine Guru

We stopped buying wine at BevMo etc.---not just because of price, but because David gets to know your likes very quickly, and then lets you know when something comes in that fits. Likewise, he will readily say "you won't like this wine." It's always an honest sale.
