Mischief is a locally-owned, family-friendly gift shop and creative hub located in the heart of Oakland’s Laurel District. We’re all about color, creativity, and community! We offer a curated selection of locally made jewelry, paper goods, art, gifts, and more, as well as a variety of creative classes and events.

Our story

We are Laura and Julien Shields, a husband-and-wife team, and along with our “assistants” –  our son and our dog, we are the folks behind Mischief. We live just blocks away from the shop, and love our neighborhood so much- we’re so excited to create a welcoming space for community and creativity, and we especially love to share our favorite local makers (many of whom also live in the Laurel/Allendale/Redwood Heights area). As artists and makers ourselves, you might see us working on our own creative projects in the shop or teaching one of our many workshops!
