About Us

Our Mission

 We love our community and delight in offering our customers unique, quality products. Many

of our products are made in the USA, some right here in California, and we strive to support

small manufacturers that use organic, fair-trade, or handmade materials. A few carefully

selected imports are always fair-trade and sustainably produced. Having met these criteria,

we aim to help you find a perfect gift at a great value. Enjoy browsing our cozy El Cerrito

shop, and be sure to stop in next-door at Well Grounded Tea & Coffee Bar for a latte or a bagel sandwich.

 

Who We Are

Jen Komaromi and Kevin O'Neal are a husband-and-wife team. We started our side-by-side

shops in 2005 on the Stockton Avenue corridor, where our block features easy parking and a

view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Jenny K. and Well Grounded Tea & Coffee

Bar has become a neighborhood favorite. The cafe offers customers bistro-style outdoor

seating and the chance to enjoy dining alfresco. In 2012, Jenny K. expanded and quadrupled in size allowing

us to expand our offerings to include a large kids department as well as an increased size of gifts, accessories

and kitchen goods.

 

Jen was raised in a family business and has been working in the gift industry since 1997. She

knows that a small business can thrive wherever people love finding gifts that are unique,

whimsical and, whenever possible, sustainably sourced. Jen started Jenny K with the desire

to highlight small manufacturers and bring independent artisans to the fore. She offers a few

select high-end products that capture the imagination—one of her favorites is Fire & Light

Glass, an elegant line made from recycled glass, handmade in the USA.

 

Our Commitment to the Community

Jenny K and Well Grounded frequently participate in community events, donating to local

schools and the arts and hosting special events featuring the work of local artists and

craftspeople whenever possible. We are committed to green business principles and are a

Certified Bay Area Green Business.
