Umami Mart, our go-to Oakland shop for Japanese knickknacks, is having us kick our heels in excitement with its latest announcement! It’s infiltrating the 7x7 with a pop-up at The Perish Trust, starting November 1. The shop will stay nestled there throughout the holiday season, so score that coveted pressie (and have it gift-wrapped for free) while you can. (Umami Mart)
