About the Founder

Julie Harleman has lived in Oakland since 1997 after moving from her childhood home in St. Louis, Missouri.  She is obsessed with dogs, has an affinity for the Boss, and could subsist on a steady diet of tacos.  About creating Maple Street Denim, Julie says, "When I had the opportunity to open my own store, I knew wanted to create a place where people would really like to be. I chose to name it after the street that my late father grew up on as an homage to him and because it has a familiar and comfortable feel. I am unbelievably lucky that I get to have a job where I can talk to people and connect with my customers every day.  I truly love helping people feel good about themselves."
