Pygmy Hippo Shoppe

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…

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!
