More LA Last Minute Holiday Home Gift Shops: Westside

Hate to admit it but I still have a lot of shopping left to do. Lots. And the last thing I want is to find myself battling it out on the promenade. Yesterday's Best LA Last Minute Gift post inspired me to roundup my favorite home related stores on Abbott Kinney, because as great as the stores are, I can't face driving out to the eastside.

A+R: Yes the westside finally got an A+R, filled with plenty of impressively stylish gifts under $50. They carry items for the table, for the walls, for kids, for grown up kids.

Tortoise: A store that I personally cannot get enough of. It's a Japanese home goods store with the most delicate glasses, amazing cloth ornaments, stone vases, calendars, paper lanterns, notecards, dishes, stools, trashcans. It's small and I still end up in there for a minimum of a half hour just touching everything.

Firefly: never dissapoints. Great candles, soaps, and a great pared down selection of coffee table books. If you hurry you'll even catch the Lisa Congdon show.

Colcha Home: homewares from around the world, a great kids section, jonathan adler, ornaments, vases, platters, mirrors, doo dads.

Turquoise: Turquoise is moving her showroom in the new year so take advantage of her 40% off EVERYTHING until then: custom vintage, mid century furnishings and accessories.

Urbanic Paper Boutique: This is by far my favorite store. Audrey carries the best letterpress notecards, snow and graham calendars, dwell baby products and candles.
