Los Angeles is a great place for all things shopping. Finding previously loved fashion is quit an easy stop to make here.

Artsist & Fleas 

Venice has always been known for its artsy crowd. Artist, designers, and vintage is what you will find here among other great finds. You will discover talented local designers, organic soy candles and more. Food trucks are big here, and are worth a bite or two in between booths.
