09/04/17 0 OAKLAND PLAID FRIDAY WEEKEND IS COMING
What? We are writing about shopping on Thanksgiving weekend already? Yes. Yes we are. Believe it or not, Oakland’s local retailers are already in the planning phases to deliver a dynamic shopping event on this most sacred shopping weekend. And we want to tell you about it!
06/26/17 0 THE THREE STORES
There are three stores that have greatly contributed to my love of local shopping and my localist mindset. I would even say that they are the inspirations for the development of LOCALMOTIV.
The first store, I won’t spend too much time on because it is a little clothing boutique in Toronto, Ontario Canada - where I had lived prior to moving to California in 2000. But, I started shopping at BodyBlue sometime around 1997.
