Who We Are

About Our Shop

Long before starting her children’s clothing company, Nohi Kids, Janel Andersen had dreams of one day opening her own brick and mortar shop. She envisioned a well-curated space for littles and their favorite grown-ups that was also a place to connect with the community. In 2016, after more than a decade as the founder & designer of children’s apparel brand Nohi Kids and following the births of her two kids, she decided to explore the other side of retail and Bird & Bean was born. Located on the Oakland/Berkeley border in the heart of the Rockridge and Elmwood shopping districts, you will find lots of her own brand (now called Bird & Bean!) as well as many other gorgeous, unique collections and essentials for new parents and gift-givers! (Don't forget to pop into our sister store, Stitch + Sparrow, to find apparel, accessories, jewelry and gifts for grown-ups!) Inspired by her own bird (daughter) and bean (son), Janel’s hope is to provide you with impeccable customer service and share her years of baby/kid product expertise to help you find exactly what you are looking for! Come visit our shops at 3212 College Ave and 3210 College Ave, Berkeley, CA.
