samples, samples everywhere

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

Thanks again to everyone who came out to our sample sale last weekend – what a whirlwind of a Saturday! If you didn’t make it out {or you just want to shop some more V&I deals} please do join us this weekend, 12/15 and 12/16, for the final weekend of our sale! We will be adding more styles that will all be up to 50% off! That means two presents for yourself for every one you find for someone else {or is our math wrong}?

To boot, we’ll also be hosting a Maison Bouche chocolate tasting this Saturday, 12/15! All purchases from our favorite Oakland-based chocolatier will be 10% off and we have stocked up on all of her signature holiday creations. Trust us when we say that her milk chocolate Mint Candy Cane bar makes up for the hassle of finding a parking space in downtown Berkeley {and, coincidentally, you can finish the whole bar in the time is takes you to walk back to said car read: it’s up and down delicious}.

See you there!

Hi Everyone!

Happy pinning!

All available in Oxford Hall.

the cookies are coming!

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Just call us the Paul Revere of cookies.

But seriously now, these delicious little bites are worth the fuss. And a few squeals of delight. Not to mention a frantic midnight horseride. But, as is the case when any baked good is involved, we digress. All we really wanted to tell you was that we couldn’t be more excited to welcome emmacakes to Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall! Oh yes, and their cookies.

Helmed by locals {and cousins} Jennifer and Michelle, emmacakes is small, custom bakeshop located right here in the Bay Area. They specialize in artisanal cakes and cookies for every special occasion, from the bittiest of the bitty birthdays to your biggest of big days. And when they found Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall, it was love at first sight. A leisurely Friday afternoon meeting and some cookie samples later, the feeling was entirely mutual.

So, if you’re still in the market for a Mother’s Day present, or if you just like delicious cookies {everyone better be raising their hands here} then we highly suggest a visit to Oxford Hall. Starting tomorrow, we will be carrying all manner of their delectable shortbreads, the likes of which include lemon creme “sandwiches” and chai spice-infused cookies. But enough from us – we’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
