We want to be more than just friends with: Urban Indigo

Urban Indigo-> 3339 Lakeshore Avenue Oakland, CA

Another profile for the special series dedicated to bringing our readers biased reviews of shops that carry our goods.

This will come as quite a surprise to many (none) of you: But I’m not the seasoned traveler I appear to be. What?? I’m not the gal that climbs confidently into a cab, casually relates Gate Info to the driver while applying a super-coat of lipgloss and checking her voicemail messages.

But this doesn’t stop Zeichen Press Goods from making their way around the globe! Thank God! 

I’m happy to say that Urban Indigo (Oakland, California)

has added our cards to their adorable shop. What can I say about a shop that I’ve never been to in a town I’ve never seen?? I’ll think of something: Owner, Cynthia Bragdon, has amassed a collection of swoon-worthy gifts for any occasion – from mini-terrariums

to pewter wishbones:

I need those things!

But it’s not a random collection of oddities, it’s a random collection of affordable design.

…It’s a gallery of useful art objects.

…It’s in California!!

What are you waiting for??
