Shop The Street: Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice

Written by on April 4, 2012 in Shop The Street, Shopping - 21 Comments
Bountiful (1335 Abbot Kinney Blvd): This eccentric, jam-packed store is how we’d imagine the house of the coolest, craziest grandma in the world to look. The store feels magical, with chairs and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, lavender-scented toiletries from Europe spilling out of glass tubs, and fluorescent cake stands stacked sky-high. We wouldn’t be surprised to find unicorns and fairies living in the back room.

Kid Firefly (1405 Abbot Kinney Blvd): This modern baby store is adorable, but never saccharine. It makes us want to adopt a dozen kids and lavish them with stylish mini outfits, classic books, and handmade toys! We’ll never be able to afford to send them to college because this store is so pricey, but…gosh darn it if their baby pictures will be cute!!

A. Kinney Court (1423 Abbot Kinney): Owned by the son of the founder of Oliver Peoples, this Venice institution is stocked with both vintage glasses and modern, locally-made specs. We could (and often do) play around here for hours.

    I love this article!  It makes me want to do a ton of shopping on Abbot Kinney!  I love the Broke Girls.  

  • Deborah

    No offense, but Local 1205 and Intelligentsia are two of the MOST overpriced spots for what they’re selling. How do those qualify for the Broke Girls??

      The article states in the beginning that they are not doing a “Broke Girls” adventure for this particular task…

  • Sethrin

    love the pics!

  • Ashley

    I’m a huge fan of Broke Girls and this is amazing!  These girls know what they’re talking about.  Gjelina Take Away is one of my faves too.  And what adorable pics.  I want to see more!

    If these places are fit for “broke” then this guide is plain stupid. 

    • Jennifer

       Relax, this isn’t like a guide to finances — it’s just a fun look around at all the cool places and inspiring fashion to be found on Abbot Kinney!

      Yes, this isn’t about ‘affordable’ places. We just asked the girls behind BGG to share cool spots to check out on Abbot Kinney (near their office). To see affordable places and things in LA –check out their site. :)

    every one needs inspiration… and some times inspiring things may be a bit outside of “normal” budgets…
