Strolling Down Piedmont

Polish Spa is the place to go on Piedmont for facials and other luxurious beauty treatments. But where do you go to stock up on product? The Beauty Center! They carry everything from nail polish, to hair treatments, to beauty tools. And they have many organic and vegan beauty product options like Alba paraben free body lotions. They also carry fabulous O.P.I nail colors and Dermalogica sunscreen.

Beauty Center Located at:
3976 Piedmont Ave
Oakland, CA 94611
(510) 653-7837

So, after a manicure at Polish and stopping in to check out the latest from the Rag & Bone fall collection at McMullen, a stop at the Beauty Center, and a stop to get a Bubble Tea at Lamyx - no stroll down Piedmont Ave. is complete with out turning down Glen Ave. to check out Issues to pick up some great mags. for wardrobe inspiration.

Issues also carries jewelry by Brooklyn based designer Erica Weiner.

"Erica works closely with her good friend, Lindsay Salmon, whose impeccable sense of style deeply influences the ever-evolving collection. They travel around the country searching out interesting materials and buying up peculiar jewelry closeout lots. Because they make use of limited and vintage materials, there are no seasonal, set collections."

"By incorporating natural objects with mass-produced, vintage-style metal pieces, mixing in antique pieces and focusing on non-precious metals, Erica can produce inexpensive jewelry that doesn't look cheap."

Issues Located at:
20 Glen Ave
