LOOT is a small shop filled with an eclectic mix of antiques, home furnishings and one of a kind treasures located in the heart of Rockridge in Oakland. Ron Morgan offers floral arranging classes on select Mondays.
Rhonda C. says on Yelp: "I had walked by this shop several times, but this particular day Kingsley (the owner) was outside tending to a newly acquired piece of furniture in need of a little TLC. His gentle demeanor and genuine love for fine craftmanship reeled me in. I couldn't resist buying a few of the pieces, because I had never seen anything like them and I was worried that I might not again. A Rockridge gem!"

A long-standing love affair with design has been the driving force behind many of Nathan’s creative and career exploits. As a boy, it was not uncommon for Nathan to spend hours dreaming of someday owning his own “perfect little store.” Even when his mother sent him about his household chores, Nathan would imagine himself in his very own retail utopia, sweeping or dusting or straightening things. The store of his imagination was beautiful and innovative. It was a place where the shopping experience was just as lovely as the loot you left with, where your name was remembered and the gift-wrapping was always free. It was decidedly modern and chic but never highfalutin’, and forever fun.
