Popuphood Pops Up in Old Oakland
I love this idea. Two business owners in the great but not-well-frequented neighborhood in old Oakland arranged for retailers to temporarily set up retail space in unoccupied retail storefronts. The results? Popuphood, a chance for more development and foot traffic for Old Oakland and support for small, local business owners who don’t have to make a big commitment to a retail space when first starting out.
Retailers include a custom-made bicycle shop, vintage jewelery, an art gallery, and a furniture store housed in a shipping container. I’m not guaranteeing that these stores are cheap, but it does add more incentive to check out Old Oakland, which not only has great architecture, a great vibe and great places to check out like Endgame and The Trappist.
