Uptown’s OwlNWood may not be a big store, but it offers a diverse selection of products. Men’s and women’s clothing, eyewear, candles, incense, art, purses, and jewelry are among the many items lining the walls. Some of these items are vintage, some are from hard-to-find international brands, and others are designs by local Oakland artists.

Even with the wide diversity of the products, the store is not a disunified hodge-podge. OwlNWood’s products are carefully curated and share a beautiful, artful aesthetic. To quote the store’s website: “The concept for OwlNWood is influenced by owner Rachel Konte’s Afro-Scandinavian heritage. While blending Danish quality and aesthetics with American design, she fuses the decades of the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s.”

If you would like to give someone special a thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gift, this local Oaktown treasure may be just what you’re looking for. Stop by 45 Grand Ave Monday through Friday from 11am to 7pm, or Saturday from noon to 4pm.
