Around Town with Christina // part 2

Field trip part deux brought me up to North Oakland and the Temescal neighborhood. My first stop was complete happenstance- I spotted this shop on the corner of 43rd and Telegraph on my way to another shop and knew I had to check it out. 

Dandelion Post is a dream, featuring an impressive roster of clothing designers and makers. Shop owner Jamie has created a space where you can browse and shop comfortably and find at least 1 treasure to snag.  Bonus, her shopdog Charlie is super sweet.

My final stop of the day was to Concept Forty-Seven  an amazing boutique in the Temescal Arts District. They feature local and indie artists and makers and is also the home base for the skin and hair care line Beija-Flor Naturals

There's a little bit of everything in this shop. Ceramics, jewelry, candles, terrariums, art, clothing, accessories, skin/body/hair care and more!

Shop gal Mercedes (IG @tresmercedes) uses African textiles on the baseball hats and creates some super snazzy shades.

Still thinking about this ceramic tumbler. Hopefully it's there the next time I go back!
