I took a letterpress workshop
when I was in school, and I remember thinking, "Damn, I need to hit the gym! Who would have thought it takes so much brute strength to make a 3-color 5x7 print on a letterpress?" Needless to say, I've left the letterpressing to the professionals. With having that said, I've always been a bit curious about Soolip
, a paperie boutique in West Hollywood run by Wanda Wen that has evolved to include a floral shop (Floracopia
), an annual wedding exhibition (A Soolip Wedding
--including the socially aware Green Wedding
!), and finally: a home furnishings boutique called Soolip Bungalow.
Soolip Bungalow is described as "lifestyle" boutique: dinnerware, tabletop accessories, French soaps and bath products, candles, and unique throws and scarves to lounge in. It's a wee bit like a heavily edited Anthropologie home section...But with a heftier price tag plus more unique and obscure offerings that range from New York, Paris, Japan, London, and of course, Los Angeles.
