They have NOTHING. They put a "black hair" section in the way back of the sparse section of the store. The salesgirl (I had to go up to the counter to get help) didn't even know what the product I was asking for was, she had to ask someone else. They didn't know either, we still had to go look for it.
Given the population of Los Angeles, you'd think they'd be more diverse. They cater to white people only. I've never seen a beauty supply in LA like this.
The parking is awful, too. If you don't get a space in the back that they share withthe other businesses, you might have to park in the metered parking in front If you can find a space.).
I used to walk past this store a lot figuring I would never need to go in since I have a full set of luggage. But I ended up going in one day and I am glad I did. They dont' have just luggage. They have some great handbags and briefcases as well. Since I'm a working mom, I need my purses to be durable yet look great. Nice to know I can get durability with style.
If you are so inclined, they also personalize and/or monogram the item for you.
CONS: can be a bit pricey
My ex is a runner. He did it in high school and college. So to be the best gift giver ever, give your gift recipient something from this store. You cant' go wrong.
This is not like those big chains that are filled with people that dont' know the sport of running and even teach the intricacies of running at local colleges. The people here run marathons, they've run for years. They will assist you in picking out the best sneakers and running gear.
PROS: You can go running in a group after the store closes
CONS: Closed Sunday and Monday
It's rare to see so many disparate pieces fit together so well. From the handbags to the jewelry to the vases and bowls, everything in here is simply beautiful. You want to pick it up, but then you dont'. You just look at it. Definitely things that you want in your closet or on your table...
Forget Ross, Marshalls, etc. Go here. You get great clothes for not a lot of money. Brand clothes, too. So you can look like a million bucks, say you spent a million bucks but still be able to afford the club. I goto a lot of places that SAY they are designer and discount at the same time, but this place actually is.
PROS: Beverly Hills clothes at Slauson prices
I love looking at the jewelry that walks around int his town. Who doesn't? But if you want your dollars to go far around here, you need a place like this. It reminds me of hte Diamond District in NYC. There are many little shops all put together. You can bargain your way to a fabulous deal.
The one thing is does have over New York is the parking. There is a parking structure on Broadway and if you buy something you get free validation.
PROS: Save a LOT on jewelry
I am from the East Coast and loved to shop in NYC. This place reminds me of that. Not only are there retail stores, but you can pick up flowers, fabrics, etc. They also have many art events and trade shows (you have to be in the business, however).
CONS: Don't go on Sundays
then this is your place. The furniture is very modern, sleek, clubby. And when I say clubby, I mean in the VERY Hollywood way. It's fine if you're single, but not if you've got children. The prices aren't bad, either.
then head down here. They have that thick, heavy, dark, handmade furniture with posts and places to put candles and such. Fairy tale type stuff. Their chaise lounges are great too, very innovative designs. There are things from every continent here.
this is the place to go. I made the sad mistake of having my ex's name put on me after having my child (post partum). Bad mistake. Most places tried to hornswoggle me out of money to have it removed. It wasn't that big and the colors weren't that bad to deal with. They helped me out a great deal here and you can't even see it now.
PROS: Good work
