If it’s a special place that’s not to be missed, and it’s in your neighborhood, we want to hear about it! Send us the details about the greatest local ___________ on the planet using the We Love Local form, and we’ll help you share your favorite find.
To kick things off, here’s a local bookshop near our Berkeley communities that we were told about:
Check out Book/Shop in Oakland, CA for rare books.
You won’t find run-of-the-mill books here, but you will find some rare gems, a collection of curated books chosen by owner Erik Heywood, because of their smell, weight, or the way they feel in your hands. He’s a true book connoisseur. If you’re looking for vintage books, art and small goods, this is the place.
They are passionate about books alright. From the Book/Shop website:
We’re committedÂ to the reading experience. The surprise of one page turning to the other. The little luxury of sitting in a great reading chair, inhaling the scent of a beautifully made book.
