Silver Lake Shops


ReForm School

3902 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

ReForm School rules! And now there's an extension called "Home Ec," devoted to--you guessed it--crafts. It's genius, really. Those who can't craft will just go back to the OG shop and buy everything from stationery to home decor.


Bar Keeper

3910 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

Hey, barkeep! Where'd you get all your cool glassware and cocktail accoutrements? Sunset Junction, of course. This stylish Eastside shop definitely fills a niche better than any of the larger lifestyle shops around town.


Silverlake Wine Co

2395 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Pour on the praise: Serious oenophiles and casual sippers alike agree that this Glendale Boulevard shop has got it going on--from stocking rarely unearthed bottles to lively, social gatherings. The weekly tastings are full-fledged parties, especially Thursday Night Flights.


Clover

2756 Rowena Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039

It's like the A&P, only much hipper: Lucky residents frequent this imaginative general store/boutique on Rowena Avenue for everything from gifts and furniture to designer denim.


Yolk

1626 Silver Lake Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

They've cracked it. Just west of the reservoir is home to one of LA's most successful and useful one-stop shops for home decor, gifts and pretty much every life occasion. One quick stroll through this Spaceland-adjacent joint, and you'll see why.


Bittersweet Butterfly

1406 Micheltorena St, Silver Lake, CA 90026

Lingerie and flowers all under one hot pink roof? Guys, are you paying attention? This friendly combination boutique may just save your life (or at least your relationship) some day.


Kellygreen Design

4008 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

This is where Silver Lakers go so they can walk the walk. Kelly Van Patter's eco-conscious Sunset Junction design and gift store gives shoppers all the tools for a truly chic, low-impact homestead. Word.


Matrushka Construction

3822 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Eastside resident and designer Laura Howe's shop housing her handmade clothing line is another one of Silver Lake's shining stars. From her use of what are essentially "found" materials for her pretty, and sometimes punk, frocks to in-house alterations, her shop is made for women with an independent sense of style.


Le Pink

3820 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Locals definitely look pretty in pink inside this girly apothecary and specialty beauty shop at Sunset Junction. Shoppers will uncover hard-to-find products, in addition to receiving traditional spa/salon services like facials and lash tinting. Some might call it "le solution."


Say Cheese

2800 Hyperion Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Part cafe, part gourmet market, all charming. Lovers of cheese will be able to take their passion to new levels at Hyperion's adorable and delicious mainstay. Warning: An innocent, dairy-related quest may turn into a tasty, on-site lunch.
