Best Place for Locally Made Gifts

Bay-Made

Opened on Lakeshore Avenue last year, Bay-Made fits right into Oakland’s local ethos: The gift shop and gallery specializes in locally made craft goods and artwork, including chocolate bars from San Francisco “bean-to-bar” maker Dandelion Chocolate, organic coffee from Oakland’s Bicycle Coffee, hair- and skin-care products by Oakland’s Beija Flor Naturals, exquisitely packaged seaweed soap by San Francisco-based Samudra Skin & Sea, and fun prints by local artists. Owned and operated by Lake Merritt residents and makers Sarahjane Bernhisel and Schuler McAlister, the shop aims to be an accessible art space for local residents. To that end, Bay-Made also hosts regular workshops and carries a plethora of art supplies to inspire you to create something of your own. It’s difficult to walk out of this bright and airy shop without picking up some little treasure.
