“A second-generation shoe designer, Yosi Samra grew up in his father’s factory in New York City and spent countless hours absorbing the fine art of shoemaking. So when it came time for him to create his own eponymous footwear line in 2008, he was more than prepared.

Samra was a pioneer designer of what would become the popular fold-up ballet flat movement, elevating the style into one that was just as superior in structure and design as it was comfortable and convenient. Thanks to the premium he placed on high-quality genuine leathers, unique details, and cutting-edge fashion, the Yosi Samra brand quickly eclipsed its competitors and expanded to include matching children’s ballet flats,

The brand is youthful, trendy and fun – and the Yosi Samra headquarters are certainly a reflection of that.

“There’s always a furry dog in the lobby eager to greet visitors to the showroom,” says Samra. “Everyone loves the relaxed, less-corporate environment, and it’s reflected in the level of enthusiasm people have for their work. They’re motivated to succeed because they genuinely like the atmosphere and the people here.”

Yosi Samra’s runway-inspired styles have been featured in Vogue, InStyle and Glamour Magazines and spotted on some of fashion’s most trend-setting celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway, and Halle Berry.

The Yosi Samra brand is available in over 1000 boutiques across the US and in 85 other countries, including 15 brand shops in Asia and the Middle East.”

The Cleveland Heights native lingered in Oxford after graduating from Miami University, taking classes and building a new business. This eclectic gift store started out as a leather shop specializing in Biales’ hand made belts, bracelets, sandals, purses and incense. Gradually, Biales incorporated items from around the world with a focus on handcrafts.

Today, The Wild Berry maintains a long-standing tradition of finding specialty items that are interesting and unique, featuring wacky and unusual gifts. The store is a nostalgic blast from the past for many who bring their kids in to shop for bulk candy, sterling silver jewelry, clothing from around the world, posters, greeting cards, and t-shirts. You can also find imported cigars, tapestries, wind chimes, novelties and many assorted pleasures. Wild Berry customers appreciate our dedication to service.
The moment you walk through the door, our aromatic and sensual Wild Berry Incense greets you as a fine bouquet. We have perfected our special blend of incense since the beginning and currently manufacture over 90 delightful fragrances. Wild Berry Incense is sold in stores all over the world and is the leading quality incense made in the United States. Wild Berry uses only the highest quality fragrances and a secret ingredient insures the fragrance stays fresh and smells the same on the stick as it does when it burns.

We work hard to maintain a consistent quality hand dipped item for your olfactory pleasure. Discerning people from around the globe agree that Wild Berry Incense is the best!

The Wild Berry is located in the heart of the entertainment district in Oxford, Ohio. Our store is open daily from 10:00am until 9:00pm and Sunday from 12:00pm until 6:00pm. Stop in or give us a call at (513) 523-4345. Our friendly people are waiting to serve you.”
