venice

Just a few snippets from an afternoon along Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, the self-proclaimed “coolest block in America.”

I’d say more “quirky” than “cool,” but tomato-tomahto. In any case, it’s a a fabulous place to people watch (duuuude) and waste money on the very greatest of non-essential essentials.

It’s home to one of my favorite stationary shops, Urbanic Paper Boutique.

They recently opened a Salt & Straw too, which is an artisanal ice cream shop out of Portland. I wasn’t in the mood for frosty treats this time around (I know, who am I?) so I know I’ll be back soon to give the avocado (!!!) sherbet a try.
