Molly B’s is a shop in North Berkeley’s Walnut Square with great window displays. They were closed but the window was lit up when I was there sketching. I think they sell ladies clothes and underwear. According to one Yelp reviewer, the store has “Beautiful fabrics, witty designs, and some amusingly bizarre skirts and trousers.”

After I finished my sketch at Molly B’s we met upstairs at the Imperial Tea Court for a little more sketching and sharing. These were a couple of large containers on the counter (and a guy sitting at a table).

And if I’m ever going to get caught up on my blog posting (I’m not even out of September yet!), I am going to have to learn to keep it short. So that’s it for this post.

The Yelp description makes Molly B sound a tad bit like J. Peterman. They certainly have an interesting window display. I like your use of strong colors in this!


Thanks Jana. I’m not familiar with J. Peterman but then I’m not much of a clothes shopper, preferring comfort and function over fancy. But I do like a nicely dressed window! Jana


Thanks Judy–I like your choice of words: Lively–because that is just how my drawing felt that night. It’s a tiny little shop, but looks like it would be fun to shop there if you have the budget. Jana
