If you live near Berkley California, there is a new locally owned, "Ma & Pa" owned small business that sells all vegan goods:

Republic Of Vegan

The used to be neighbors of mine back East, they are good people

Please peruse their store if you live in the area.

Thanks

I will definitely check it out!

U GUIZE.

This place is so much more amazing than I had ever hoped! I was prepared for it to be a rinky-dink little store but it is like having our very own Food Fight in the Bay Area! Except a little bit bigger, even!

There are tons of things in stock (and they will be getting more as they haven't had their 'grand opening' yet), including things that I have trouble finding around here and things that outright weren't available here until now. They've got plenty of gummies, rescue chocolates, all the Go Max Go stuff, OCD sweets (which is amazing/terrible news for me), Tofurkey pockets (YAY), teese, daiya brand pizza, a pet section, a cosmetics section, some tees and bags, and tons more. I am so freakin impressed and glad this is open now!

I am definitely going to be giving this place a ton of business. It's going to be really nice to go to one spot to get all my vegan stuff, instead of patching it up between Whole Foods, Rainbow, etc.

ETA: beforewisdom's friends were really friendly and awesome, and very open to new product suggestions.

Bonus - it's down the street from Pizza Moda - <3 that place! Been there the last 2 Saturday nights!

Everyone's favorite vegan presidential candidate and magical wood elf Dennis Kucinich stopped by!

Image

I was just in this weekend and they have SO MUCH MORE new stuff! They've got that magic vegan bacon grease everyone's raving about and a bunch more cosmetics! They're also testing new doggie treats to carry in the store, Pepper got to try a quinoa one which she loved, and she can be quite picky! They love having four-legged testers, so bring yours by.

I cannot express enough how happy I am that Republic of V exists. My tum tum is very happy, my wallet less so.

Went back yesterday to spend 10% of my paycheck! Vegan tithings, people.

They have the EB brand cheeze-its everyone's been raving about, which are good but not really that much of an improvement on the eco-brand or whatever they're called that you can get at Rainbow and WF. But they also have Tartex now! It's not too bad, just under $6 a can. And of course, gotta load up on OCD sweets. Big-a** Burtles flicks the weasel.
