Why isn't there an easy way to shop online and find Oakland artists, makers and

Wild, right? There should be!

To answer that question we've gathered a small (but mighty) crew of skilled folks who care about their local community and have gone on to  create this valuable resource.

Now it's time to launch the pilot program and watch it grow.

We are a team that's located right here in Oakland and we have a passion for shopping local online retailers. We value working at a project that is forging a path forward for local online retailers and a project that is committed to effecting positive climate change. What's good for our local economies is also good for the planet, and we believe that there are software solutions which can help level the playing field for local businesses to serve both and thrive!

If you're curious about our project and motivated to help in your own community please contact us. We are looking for partners that can help us build great software to reach our goals.
Passion, Loyalty and Dedication
