Magical Realism in Berkeley

August 9, 2012

When we dropped in at Berkeley's Tail of the Yak recently (see Berkeley's Best Under-the-Radar Shop), we admired the mix of high style bohemia. In particular, we liked the shop's art pieces and tableware inspired by and imported from Central and South America.
