Atomic Garden: A One Stop Shop in Oakland, CA

October 25, 2012

We first posted about Atomic Garden after it opened in 2008; today the Oakland store is a regular haunt for those seeking well-crafted children's goods, time-honored products like Reiss enamelware, Redecker brushes, Fog Linen Work fabrics, and wares from Dosa.

Co-owners Adrienne Armstrong (she's married to Billy Joe of Green Day) and Jamie Kidson met on the soccer field sidelines while their children played a match. After a few games, the two struck up a friendship that would later turn into a business partnership with the opening of Atomic Garden. For more, visit Atomic Garden online.
