Big Daddy’s Antiques
3334 La Cienega Pl., West Adams
For 20 odd years, Big Daddy has been filling a corner on La Brea with pieces sourced from around the world—and by pieces, we don't mean straightforward couches and case goods. This is the sort of place where you go for something significant and statement making, whether it's a vintage dental case, an antique birdcage, or a seasoned Louis Vuitton trunk. You can also find them at the Rosebowl Flea, or at their warehouse in San Francisco.

Bird
8870 Washington Blvd., Culver City
Owner and buyer Jen Mankins has built a bit of an empire out in Brooklyn, drawing Manhattanites out to shop in the process. Now, you can peruse the same edit in Culver City, where you’re greeted by an entrance courtyard replete with its own native plant garden. Within: Mankins’s eye for both quirky and cool, meaning that you’ll find a pretty irreverent (and bright) mix here, along with picks from Ulla Johnson, Apiece Apart, Mansur Gavriel, and A Détacher.

Calder Blake
11708 Washington Pl., Culver City
Tucked away on Washington Place near the Mar Vista/Culver City border, Calder Blake is an oasis of timeless basics that are intended to last, from simple made-in-the-States cotton jersey tees to solid tank dresses, ribbed bodysuits, and simple cotton pants. All of owner Amanda Blake’s designs channel a minimalist, utility-driven elegance, complemented by a small selection of accessories and home goods, like jewelry from artist Erin Considine and pottery from LA native Victoria Morris.

HD Buttercup
3225 Helms Ave., Culver City
Occupying the former Helms Bakery building, this department store-like store sits in a complex that also plays host to Room & Board, and a handful of rug and lighting boutiques. It's divided into shop-in-shops for various vendors, which means that you'll find vintage collectibles arranged next to fancy furniture lines and bedding companies. They have two other LA locations (a store downtown and a pop-up in Santa Monica), as well as one in SF and one in Orange County.
Culver City
Janessa Leoné
8840 Washington Blvd., Ste. 106
California-based designer Janessa Leoné finally has a brick-and-mortar space where you can peruse her line of structured, beautifully made hats, which manage to be minimalist while still making a statement. The same can be said of her line of leather accessories, which are also fashioned in her signature neutral color palette. The other side of the brightly-lit space is home to footwear brand Freda Salvador, whose quirky brogues and stacked-heel boots are a fitting complement to Leoné’s wares.

Midland Shop
8634 Washington Blvd., Culver City
Started by Paige Appel & Kelly Harris (founders of the much-loved event design business Bash, Please) opened their long-awaited shop on Washington boulevard in Culver City, within easy striking distance of nearby Platform, where there's also some excellent shopping to be had. The buy is a mix of one-off items like West African woven fans and Zuni stones along with pieces from up-and-coming designers, like Beatrice Valenzuela slides, Cinq jewelry, and Sara Barner bags. The apothecary has great body oils and some Shiva Rose creams, as well.
