Fairyland for Grownups FAQ 2019

Oaklandish and Fairyland are teaming up once again to host a night of pure imagination — for grownups only! Children’s Fairyland in Oakland – the midcentury storybook theme park on the shores of Lake Merritt – is a magical family destination that stimulates a young child’s creativity, imagination, and desire to learn. Famous for its storybook sets, puppet shows, gardens, and animals, Fairyland provides free admission and educational programs for thousands of children from underserved communities every year. And yet for many Oaklanders, Fairyland is shrouded in mystery. Most of the time, Fairyland is off-limits to adults unless they’re accompanied by...

Finale at Oracle

Finale at Oracle

We're honored that the Golden State Warriors chose Oaklandish as their design partner for the Fan Night tees for the last regular season game at Oracle.

Keak da Sneak March 21, 2019

Keak blessed us last night with honesty, humility, wisdom and humor. We had a great turnout the downtown shop for this intimate Q&A with a local legend. Keak spoke about getting shot, having a gun, and trying to stay out of jail. Tyranny of Marketing Kings led the conversation, delving into Keak's influences and the huge body of work Keak has already amassed, and work he has already finished, just waiting to be set out into the world. We are all looking forward to a bright future of triumphs for Keak. And... FREE KEAK! Video recap coming soon! In the meantime,...

54ghosts x Oaklandish: East Oakland

We're stoked to present another collection with 54ghosts! This series celebrates East Oakland. Shop the collection. Artist statement by Alex Hernandez aka 54ghosts: this collaboration is inspired and made up of three shirts depicting what I grew up seeing during my childhood in East Oakland. The first photo entitled “Power” is a literal take on the electrical poles that a lot of us grew up with and attempted climbing. “Kick Up Dust” is a metaphorical take on my Oakland childhood, with the image of some young ones shutting down the 580 freeway on their bikes not giving a f@*k. The final...

Holiday Gift Boxes benefitting Alameda County Community Food Bank

Holiday Gift Boxes benefitting Alameda County Community Food Bank

We're not very good at gift wrapping. But we do love gift boxes! And we love the Alameda County Community Food Bank (ACCFB). Did you know that a whopping 1 in 5 Alameda County residents uses the food pantry? And that ACCFB purchases 80% of the food they provide. Plus, most of the food they distribute is fresh produce? So while the bins all around town to donate food are great and provide variety to food pantry clients, monetary donations keep ACCFB moving. This holiday season, purchase a gift box at Oaklandish stores or online, complete with gold ribbon and tissue...
