I have loved this store's shoes for over 7 years. I can always find my favorite brand, Indigo by Clark's, here. I have bought 3 pairs of shoes at this store within the last year alone. I was browsing boots online--checking out styles that I might like to go and buy LOCALLY. I found a pair of Indigo boots that were fabulous and thought instantly of Ideas for Elements, I was sure they would have them. They did not have them, they only had a pair of Indigo booties, I asked if I could try them on for size and comfort. Figuring if that brand of boot didn't feel right on my foot I might find something else in the store that I liked, because as I said I prefer to buy LOCALLY. The sales woman told me, "We only bring out shoes to people who are going buy them, the owner doesn't want this be a place where people try-on things to buy on http://Zappos.com". I told them I would go somewhere else where I could get better service. They have lost a customer for life and I am telling everyone I know NOT to shop there. They could have had a sale that day, or at least a return customer, now they will have nothing from me ever again. I see their point, but if you are shoe store you should be able to deal with people trying on shoes without buying them. It happens everyday.

I always find clothes I like at this store. They specialize in natural fiber clothing, and sell a wide variety of merchandise including outfits, jackets, coats, handbags, and scarves. Their prices are reasonable considering the quality and the fact that many of them are made in the USA. Love the service! II would highly recommend this store! Check it out!

I frequently stop by just to see what's new and I'm never disappointed- the selection is always varied and I can always find something interesting in my size, XL, which is sometimes difficult at other boutiques on Solano. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I don't find the prices expensive at all compared with other shops in the area. I've gotten some great values and I always get compliments on the stuff I get there. Quality can vary a little by brand, but almost everything I've bought has lasted and lasted. It's worth checking out this store.

I occasionally passed by this shop in Berkeley and would be drawn inside by the dresses they often display in the windows. While looking good from afar, they often appear on closer inspection to be not that well made, and a little expensive for what they're charging (Rampage quality). Some good selection of shoes but a little too "earthy" for me.

This store is inviting and nice, but I have never bought anything there, in part because it is too expensive. I also found that they don't have a large range of sizes, and most of what I remember seeing in there was coats and jackets, even when the weather was warm. The shoes are nice, but they don't have the kind of stock, selection, or expertise that you'd get at a shoe store. If you happen to be looking for a coat or jacket, you don't mind spending a lot of money, and you have 'mature' tastes (i.e. you are in your forties or older, or like to dress like you are), then maybe you'd like this place. I'm not crazy about it myself.

This store has a lot of great well made, appealing women's clothes. Dressy, casual, and mix and match items as well.

They have some accessories such as purses, jewelry and a small selection of shoes that match a lot of the clothing they carry.

The prices in this store are a bit high, even for the sale items, but as I mentioned the clothes are well made and you will be satisfied with any purchase you make.
