While on our recent trip to LA, we stayed in lovely Venice Beach, and of course that means we took a bike ride over to Abbot-Kinney, one of the main shopping streets there. Surfing Cowboys was far and away the most amazing spot along that drag. Truly to die for vintage furniture, and -- sparking my interest, of course -- an exceptional collection of vintage Native American jewelry. So exceptional, mind you, that I had to be dragged away and am still thinking about the pieces, most too small for my larger-than-average wrists and fingers. I was informed by the staff that Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's daughter is the one who selects and brings in their incredible Native American pieces. Like her parents, gal's got taste for days!
All these pics are from Surfing Cowboys' website -- I didn't take any pics inside myself...too shy!
Their stuff is the real deal, folks.
