The smallest gift shop in Los Angeles, Pygmy Hippo Shoppe.
Right across the street from Erewhon, tucked into a teeny (and I mean tiny) space off Beverly on Stanley Avenue, is the cuuuuuuuutest shop. Pygmy Hippo Shoppe is recommended to me by Abe. He tells me if I ever need a place to get a cool gift, this is it.
I needed something for Leslie’s birthday, so I wound up picking up a necklace (that you can also buy in their online store)…
…and a vintage tea bag holder (<—I wish there was another word for that).
All beautifully wrapped up…
…by the store’s super cool proprietor, Emi.
As if it couldn’t get any more awesome, the day I stopped in, there were puppies.
More info on adopting them at Mae Day Rescue, right up the street!
