Greetings from Jingletown!

Sunset over the Estuary, Jingletown, Oakland California

Inspired by Spike's This Isn't Sydney CafePress.com shop, I've put my own Greetings from Jingletown! shop up at CafePress (under my real name), based (to some extent) on the original Jingletown article I did here last year. There's a bunch of slightly oddball and off-kilter postcards, greeting cards, coffee mugs, etc., for sale with themes mostly from the whole Jingletown neighbourhood thing (it's about bloody time someone gave Oaktown and the surrounding areas the recognition they deserve…).

So take a look… and note that while it's still a bit of a work in progress, you can probably see where it's going (there are also a couple of other shops in store, so to speak, for my other ventures), and there's likely to be a few more images and products added over the next few months. And if you have any requests (fridge magnets or dog shirts or whatever), let me know. And yes, there'll be a Jingletown 2008 calendar available later this year.

Just surfed in, Thanks for writing about Jingletown. As a child growing up in Oakland I heard the phrase often. Now I can put it together. Love the photos. My 40 year absence makes me nostaglic for my hometown. Can't wait to visit.

Anonymous -- thanks! Your hometown has both changed completely and not changed much at all... depending on where you look.
