Tail of the Yak

My favorite store ever is Tail of the Yak in Berkeley. When people ask me to describe it I have a hard time because it is so different than any store I’ve been to. They don’t let you take pictures {trust me I’ve asked} but occasionally some make it out, like these from flickr. I saw these on the RubyPR blog and thought they deserved their own post, they capture a little bit of how amazing this store is.

    The look sort of reminds me of ‘Nest’ which I think is on Filmore. Very pretty.
    I always enjoy your posts.

    i’ve shopped there before – it feels like you’ve stepped into a different era when you’re in there.

    How is it that I’ve never seen this store before?! Next time I’m in Berkeley I’ll have to visit.

    Have you ever been to “Castle in the Air” in Berkeley on 4th street? It’s one of my favorites.

    This is one of my favorite places. When we got married, my husband and I registered here. One of my favorite aspects of the store are the women who run it–always dressed as though from a different era, with a bit of a snooty attitude that is well deserved.
