Max & Moritz (Closed)
This excellent general store is situated on a stretch of Santa Monica that’s decidedly out-of-the-way (particularly during daylight hours), but it’s inarguably one of our favorite new shopping destinations. Styled in a way that will make you want to buy everything, they’re offering everything from earthquake emergency kits (housed in a stylish leather tote) to paper-thin Mud ceramics, to Delfonics pens and Postalco stationery, to ombre dog collars, to the most ideal German broom and dustpan. Yes, we’re that excited about a broom and dustpan. It’s owned by the mother and son team behind Food+Lab.
