In a dream world (or Hollywood film) these would be the places you would want to work. A candy shop, a castle full of magicians, a time travel store, the zoo, and an observatory above Los Angeles, just to name a few. These are the places where you could work every day with a smile on your face.
The shows here are awesome. The windy hallways and little secrets definitely play with your imagination. Looks like it could be haunted.
Honey - peanut butter - sea salt and mango truffles are some favorites. New line of bars make great gifts.
There aren't that many smaller neighborhood toy stores anymore. Toy Crazy is special because it is small and has a lot of educational toys.
One of LA's best secrets. Vidiots has so many films. Love that they are organized by director. Their classes are also very cool for cinephiles.
Sweet and savory pies in the arts district downtown. A real hidden gem of LA. Love the Early grey pie.
International and vintage (looking) candy. So cute and bright. Beware: children will love it.
