For your Holiday Shopping, think local! Plaid Friday is a nice way to escape Black Friday craziness.


Plaid Friday takes actually place in Oakland. Conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric, it was created a few years ago to promote local and independant stores in Oakland. Besides promotion for shoppers wearing a plaid, the participating stores organize festive animations and food tastings. 


Take a walk Dowmtown Oakland and visit Dashe Cellars (renowned for their Tasteful Zinfandel!), Miette or Oaklandish, one of our favorite places in Oakland, among plenty of other businesses.





Some boutiques in San Francisco got inspired. 


Zinc Details organized a 3 Pop Up serie with local vendors. Take a walk on Fillmore on Saturday.
