Featured Shop: Modern Mouse
by Tawny Reynolds on May 15, 2018
This week's featured shop is Modern Mouse, in Alameda, California - fairly close to Sundrop Jewelry's home base in Berkeley, as a matter of fact!
Why did you start your shop?
Modern Mouse opened its doors in 2009 under the watchful eye of OG owner, Eleen Hsu. She wanted to create and cultivate a more community-oriented and intimate retail space, showcasing all handmade, locally-made, and/or independently designed goods. Since Matt and I, Mynt, became the new Head Mice, we've only sought to perpetuate that vision.
What types of products do you carry?
We carry a little something for everyone! From apparel and jewelry to home goods and body products - we have a little bit of everything for him, her, them, and home! Feel free to visit modernmousegifts.com for a tip of the iceberg glance of what we carry.
What do your customers love?
Our best-loved items are those that appeal to the Alameda island-pride! Besides that, anything with a personal story is appreciated in our space - which is great, because 99% of our items have a super interesting back story.
Why did you pick Sundrop Jewelry for your store?
Sundrop Jewelry is a great, eco-friendly and high-quality source for beautiful adornments. Her one-of-a-kind pieces speak to the tastes of many, and we're extremely fortunate to work with her. :)

Our business is well documented on our website (modernmousegifts.com), on Facebook (/ModernMouse), and on Instagram (@modernmousegifts)! Should anyone have any further questions, you're more than welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
