The Laurel Cyclery is a startup bicycle repair shop, retail store, and social enterprise in the Laurel District of East Oakland. Launched in August 2014, the shop sells quality new and used bikes, new bike parts, accessories, specialty apparel, books, and maps to residents of Oakland’s Upper Fruitvale and Lower Hills Districts.
Owner Jason Wallach combines 25 years as a professionally trained mechanic with keen management experience to ensure a strong, sustainable future for the shop. From 2011-2014, Jason ran a successful weekly pop-up bicycle repair clinic in Temescal and has contributed dozens of volunteer hours to community-based events that put quality refurbished bikes in the hands of Bay Area youth. The Laurel Cyclery adds to Jason’s existing reputation as a quality mechanic and cycling community leader.

Welcome to HOMESTEAD APOTHECARY, our storefront is located in Temescal Alley in Oakland CA. If you’re local or visiting the area, stop by the shop and explore our wall of herbs for just the right ingredient for your home brew, culinary masterpiece, relaxing bath balm or the perfect remedy for your mid winter blues. Our shop is a homage to the plants. In addition to dry herbs we offer handcrafted tinctures made in small batches using local plants as well as other goods including candles, body care, books, flower essences, handmade tea sets, living plants, botanical and nature inspired prints and local honey, all made, collected or grown by folks who are passionate about their craft. We also have a fantastic herb related zine collection and many of our offerings are so local they are delivered here by bike! We always have a trained herbalist on staff that is extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all of your questions.
Mischief is all about color, creativity, and fun! We offer a curated selection of jewelry, paper goods, art, gifts, and more. Our focus is fresh, colorful and modern designs from local artists.
We’ll be hosting rotating monthly pop-ups to highlight our designers even more, and you’ll be able to get your hands dirty at one of our workshops, or join us for one of our free events: we’ll be organizing book swaps, parties, and more. Our vision is to create a vibrant store that would be a creative cornerstone for our community.
