We’ve written on more than one occasion about how Downtown Oakland tends to be an ignored, perhaps misunderstood, neighborhood. It’s definitely an overlooked scene as far as we are concerned. But, there is excellent shopping, vibey local cafes, drinking holes, restaurants, and beautiful old architecture to absorb everywhere. It’s worth checking out this gritty, often forgotten but eclectic neighborhood.
Sadly, there aren’t many shop local reasons to visit Frank Ogawa Plaza. Even though it has so much indie merchant potential, it just doesn’t have an abundance of retail there. It’s a missed opportunity.
But the “Queen of Retail” is there. Yes, enter into Spoiled Boutique and find yourself feeling a little bit Royal yourself. Is it the cream colored throne with gold accents? Is it the inspired hot pink and gold decor? Or is it the daring clothing and accessories that say “I am a Royal trendsetter.” Happily, the prices are surprisingly unRoyal.
And about our Queen, Mika McCants. Go to her and get Spoiled! She will lead you to your statement outfit. Indeed, she has a bold creative vision and it’s expressed throughout Spoiled. She is dynamic, fun, and so very warm! So whether you want to dress up for a big event or dress down and hit some bars, Either way, you’ll look and feel like a celebrity.
If you have a chance, check out Temptation Tuesdays. It’s Mika’s weekly MUST SEE IGTV SALE. She “performs” on Tuesday afternoons around 2:30.
Long live the Queen!
