One of the most inspiring shops in the San Francisco Bay Area is Tail of the Yak, known for its eclectic array of delights from all over the world.
The inventory includes a little bit of everything…gorgeous French ribbons, handmade paper boxes, exquisite antique Italian jewelry, glassware, fine writing instruments, and imported paper goods.
If you are in the area, this amazing shop is a must-see. But, if you don’t have the opportunity to visit in person, I hope these photos will allow you to feel as if you were able to make a very quick stop anyway. Here are a few of the highlights:
A fabulous bouquet of handmade paper flowers greets visitors as they enter the store.
Festive paper garland made of crepe paper medallions. The silver balls are made of thin metallic paper.
More garlands intertwined with a fabulous Murano glass chandelier. The white globes at top left have been dipped in watercolor.
Hand-made shelf paper featuring silkscreened patterns.
These exquisite gold garlands are made of lightweight wood.
A wonderful selection of postcards and greeting cards I have not seen elsewhere.
These silkscreened calendars are free with purchase. I like to recycle them as giftwrap
I hope you enjoyed the tour! Tail of the Yak, 2632 Ashby Avenue, Berkeley, California.
