Silver Lake Shops

Establishment neighborhood
Oficine
2912 Rowena Ave., Silver Lake
True to its name, Broome Street General Store is as much a place to get goods as it is a place to get goodies (coffee, flaky pastry, sweets). But back to the goods: perfumes, Tata Harper skin-care products, leather-bound journals, made-in-LA ceramics, olive oil from Spain, Italian Arborio rice. It was only a matter of time before the café began to overflow. And this overflow has encouraged the opening of Broome Street’s extension, Oficine. It’s a treasure trove of waxy Barbour jackets (for looking chic the three days a year it rains in LA), Staub kitchenware, exquisitely scented Fornasetti candles—the things you didn’t realize you wanted and won’t want to leave without. Next time you find yourself on this somewhat random stretch of Rowena Avenue, go in; you can’t miss the distinct emerald storefront.
The ODells Shop
3906 Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake
Hip husband and wife duo Laura and Jason O’Dell are the masterminds behind this Silver Lake boutique–which showcases their eponymous label, as well as an eclectic mix of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, accessories, vintage, shoes, and apothecary goods. Located within a walk of some of our favorite Silver Lake haunts (Intelligentsia, Undefeated, to name a few) it's a convenient, fun spot for weekend browsing. And reason enough to visit: There's a chic yurt in the back.
Undefeated
3827 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake
The limited edition sneaker world is a strange one (long, break of dawn lines, huge markups on eBay), but while Undefeated gets plenty of notable exclusives from brands like Nike, you don't feel like you've stepped into another (albeit intimidating) world when you shop here. Most of the shoes are for men though there's a healthy selection of women's options and the kid collection is pretty adorable, too. There are also locations in Santa Monica and on La Brea.
