Oakland Supply Co. in Oakland’s Waterfront Warehouse District

The other day I was visiting a friend in Oakland’s Waterfront Warehouse district and I noticed this cool shop in the neighborhood. This was my first time at Oakland Supply Co. and I really dug the aesthetic of the place. Lots of stuff that T&P readers would be interested in. Especially those readers that are concerned with the quality of goods such as tools, bags and jewelry.

The great thing about this store is that everything is made in America.  Oakland Supply Co. is an Oaklandish retail concept store – the concept being “an homage to American Made”. The purpose of the store is to stock quality products that are meant to be long-lasting and in the case of the jewelry and tools, to be passed down to future generations. Like the old days, when things were made to last. The really cool part about this company is that they support makers.  I asked how they select products. There is a long and selective process of finding makers. They scout online and at trade shows and craft fairs. Besides quality in the craftmanship, they make sure that source materials are from the U.S.

If supporting American makers and labels are important to you, this is the store for you. They carry such items as wallets, fragrance, candles, and home goods. I found the most beautiful work tools there. It’s just nice to admire the quality that goes into these products.


If you are planning to head over to Jack London Square or happen to be in the neighborhood getting your coffee fix at Bicycle Coffee or Blue Bottle (wherever your loyalty lies), I suggest walking over to 3rd and Harrison and checking out this cool shop.

They carry such labels as:

Not to mention, the decor is fun to pop in for. Also, the neighborhood itself is fun to check out if you are into historical buildings. There is signage on the corner with a map showing which buildings are historical. Oakland Supply Co. is even housed in the American Bag Company building.

If you do check it out, please tell them that Trig & Polished sent you!
