Where is this in Oakland? Challenge 8

on August 17, 2012

It’s that time again. The seven images above have been carefully shot, giving you just enough information to try to guess where and what this is. It’s your job to figure it out.

Aside from the photos, here are three clues that will help you wrack your brain:

1. Every day’s a sale.

2. “Why would anyone need this many feather boas?”

3. It’s about awareness.

If you know the answer, be sure to comment below. And be on the lookout for additional guessing games as part of our “Where is this in Oakland?” series.

Good luck!

    Looks like the second hand store next to Market Hall on College.

    Looks like the Out of the Closet store on E. 18th Street, down the block from Anh Dao and Baggy’s, across the street from Lucky and the Merritt Bakery.

      I think you’re right. I’m always 6 hours too late with these.
