It was over six years ago on August 3, 2012, we opened our doors in Old Oakland. We had no idea what we were doing – but we had a solid crew that contributed their blood, sweat, and tears to our DIY build out. We had no idea how Oakland would respond to a Japanese barware store. Holding our breaths, we swung the doors open.
For over six years, that door remains open and our community continues to grow. Take a look back at our build out for our original location in this montage by Anders:
We've made so many grand memories in the last 6+ years. Click through this photo album of some highlights of 815 Broadway - from the Grand Opening Party, our first shop photo shoot by Erin Gleeson, a Year 1, and Year 5 scrapbooks.
Thank you for all that you have given us, 815 Broadway! You will always be a part of our journey.
