LuckyLo is a unique destination that is equal parts art gallery and boutique. Our mission is to promote the creative endeavors of people we believe in and encourage the arts in our community. Our art gallery specializes in visually fascinating and thought-provoking artworks that push boundaries. There is a new exhibition every month, with the opening reception on the first Friday of every month. Our boutique specializes in handmade goods by independent designers -- from the quirky and interesting to the practical. This includes fine art books and prints, home decor items, screen-printed t-shirts, jewelry and more. We view ourselves as an arts-focused company and the goods we carry have an artistic sensibility that reflects the dynamism of the gallery.
Established in 2014.Loakal was founded by the Oakland fashion label fiftyseven-thirtythree and the East Bay Express in the fall of 2012. We began as a pop-up shop but quickly grew in popularity as the scope of our business widened. With our ties to the local art scene, we converted half of our space into an art gallery that is adjacent to the boutique. Now, we are in a permanent location just next door to where we originally started. We have grown to carry the work of 100+ independent designers and have established ourselves as a stronghold in the Oakland gallery scene and host art openings once a month with a big crowd and party vibe. We continue to look for ways to get involved in community events and encourage people to engage with art and local artists.
