When the rain cleared for a couple of hours, I got out before cabin fever set in and walked around Abbot Kinney in Venice. I found a nice eclectic shop (is there any other kind on this street?) called Ananda at 1354 Abbot Kinney, Venice, CA 90291 Tel 310-450-2607.
The store motto of "Follow Your Bliss" speaks volumes about the vibe of the shop; from the eco friendly Sigg water bottles, to the natural and organic fiber clothes, and the decorative Buddhas and jewelry, this is the store for anyone who loves boho international style.
Most of the clothes are for women, but they do have a nice selection of Tshirts for men and the store is definitely comfortable for either gender, with neutral tones and open areas. I found some nice items on their 40% off sales rack, like designer named tops for $20, and quality material boutique names for under $10.
The owners clearly love finding unique items to stock, and finding nice items that are neither $$$$, nor fit to be trashed thrift store on this street is a noteworthy find. I'm glad I ventured out after the rains today and found something nice at the end of the rainbow.
