NEW BOUTIQUES Food and Hip Design on Hollywood Blvd.

December 10, 2008

It’s unbelievable how quickly the face of Hollywood Blvd from Vermont to Hilhurst is changing. Basically until very recently it was the forgotten child of Los Feliz. But,that is definitely not so anymore. So, in order to help you navigate this new territory of eclectic shops and fine design I’ve posted a list of some of the new businesses.

Oh, and did I mention that “Confederacy”is opening a coffeehouse on their patio after the holidays. Great idea you can shop, sit and relax

Run don’t walk to my posts and click on Great Design in Silver Lake-surrounding areas. The list keeps on growing so check it out often. Please let me know of any businesses in this area that you recommend.
