Peruse some of the shop’s magazines and gifts.
From its quaint, unassuming storefront in Oakland, Issues stocks a staggering 3,000+ American and international magazines. Visitors thumb through hard-to-find, rare, or current editions of magazines covering all manner of topic, including science, current events, film, and local culture.
Named Best Newstand of 2015 by East Bay Express, Issues has in eight years become a staple of the East Bay community. In addition to the astounding collection of periodicals, locally made art and jewelry are showcased, as well as books by local authors. The shop even finds time to amass a selection of letterpress paper goods, Issues T-shirts, and other gifts.
