last week we were over in oakland doing a photo shoot for an upcoming project (more on that later), but specifically we were in old oakland, a sweet little neighborhood Between Broadway & Washington, and 8th & 10th streets with lots of great boutique shops and outdoor cafes. while there, we couldn’t resist the urge to do a little shopping, and popped into the very charming marion & rose’s workshop. established in 2011, marion & rose’s features american-made products — a well-edited collection of fine, handcrafted, heirloom quality goods made in the good old U.S.A., and supporting the American Makers movement.

many of the makers are local bay area artists as well — there was artwork by lisa congdon up on the walls from a recent show, kitchen linens from studio patro and jenny pennywood, and ceramics by whitney smith, just to name a few. marion & rose’s reminds me of an old fashioned general store, with a modern twist. and if you get hungry, just around the corner is a delicious little pop-up shop, natty’s cakes — local and organic treats made with love.
