Hidden gem on Newbury Street relishes in exclusively handmade items, from quirky homegoods to an endless array of gifts and accessories..
Whatever stigma or halo of glory the signifier "handmade" has in our viva-green modern lifestyles, Oak takes a completely novel take on anyone's expectations. Owner Keara Sexton curates a lively collection that run the creative gamut, from handsewn one-of-a-kind skirts to Scrabble tile pendants and cufflinks. Kids can roam in pro-environmental adorableness with minature apparel and hipster-friendly stuffed toys. The trove of buttery leather bags or locally letterpressed stationery pushes handmade's boundaries to downright luxe. For the curious, a bookshelf of DIY how-to books can further inspire.
