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.
…so much more.
It also has a pretty awesome Scandinavian store.
Serving up some legit Shopping in Sweden vibes!
And also making me miss Copenhagen.
Another one of my fav shops is Burro.
Filled with all the ridiculous things you never knew you needed.
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.
