Inspired by their twin boys, the family behind Green Heat Services decided to create a company that would improve the energy efficiency and health of their home. They had been in the indoor-heating-and-cooling business for more than a quarter century, and so applied their knowledge toward rounding up a capable crew and streamlining the experience for their patrons. A licensed HVAC technician oversees each team during installations and commands the use of portable negative pressure vacuums. In addition to helping families breathe easier via cleaner indoor air, the business lowers blood pressure by scheduling their visits in three-hour increments, rather than having clients wait all day for crews to arrive.
Moe's Books tempts readers with a massive selection of more than 200,000 used, new, and rare books . Named for the firebrand founder Moe Moskowitz, the four-story space sits blocks from the Berkeley campus, a location that's played a significant role in shaping the store's vibe. The shop has sheltered anti-war protestors, hosted readings, and put on events such as midnight Pynchon releases with Pynchon-themed snacks, drinks, and anti-interview shrouds. Today, the spot continues to attract book lovers, who remain free to peruse the ever-changing stock or sell back their own books in order to even out collections or wobbling tables.
Housed in a historical turn-of-the-century storefront, Home 101’s airy shop is brimming with carefully curated vintage items and eclectic gifts. In the penthouse portion of a weathered wooden cabinet, a flock of Stonehouse olive oils and vinegars ($14–$24) preens in preparation for its yearly migration to local kitchens, and a bevy of June Taylor preserves and syrups ($12–$18) sits patiently on the floor below. At the same time on a nearby table, a menagerie of Soap and Paper Factory hand creams, candles, perfume solids and soaps ($8–$28) struts brightly patterned packaging plumage in a futile attempt to impress the stony faces of David Dexter’s pastel-colored wood-panel portraits ($16–$24).
