Silver Lake , CA and online
($) Budget - ($$$) High-End
Concealed by a lace canopy of trees on a busy street connecting tony Los Feliz with the quieter residential end of Silver Lake, Broome St. General Store is easy to pass by. Except for the noticeable foot traffic of finely (yet casually) attired Angelenos ant lining in and out of the dark blue bungalow, one wouldn't immediately expect the house-turned-store to be stocked to the rafters with a fine mix of LA x NYC wares for the home, appetite, and closet...
