When I was thirteen, I took the bus to the Julia Morgan Center for my bi-weekly dance classes. If I had the chance, I would stop by Sweet Dreams and spend a dollar of my allowance on super sour gummy candies. The Elmwood was always an idyllic neighborhood to me. Even at age 13 I loved the charm of the early 1900's homes. The location couldn't and still can't be beat, close to everything! UC Campus, Rockridge, BART, WholeFoods and the Claremont district of Oakland/Berkeley.
At one time the shops of the Elmwood were sparse, but within the last few years new life has created a rebirth.
Today, Labels had their grand opening, showcasing two stories of gently used and some new designer accessories, handbags, shoes and jewelery.
