Mazes and Surprises on La Brea

As an Angelino,  have you ever driven by that place on the corner of La Brea and 1st street and said, "what the heck is that?!"  Well, after asking myself that for the last 10 years, I finally decided to stop in and see what exactly the place is about.

As it turns out, its kind of a neat place.  It is called Metropolis Nick Collectible Furniture.  As soon as we walked in we were greeted by an interesting fellow with purple hair (possibly Metropolis Nick).  We walked through the place, which was like walking through a colorful maze. There are a lot of large vintage and antique pieces of furniture, paintings, and signage.  But, there are small things that catch your eye too.  It is definitely a fun place to check out if you are in the area.

On a side note, if you are a man on a mission in search of fashionable items, this is the area for you. Right next door to Metropolis Nicks there are several men's fashion boutiques.  (Sorry, that doesn't sound very manly).  They all are a bit different and all have great style (Union, Stussy, Undefeated, Black Scale, And Still).  We went in store after store and it seemed to be never ending!  There are also a couple of cute looking restaurants nearby, so you don't have to shop till you drop.

Here's a pic of a dressing room in one of the men's clothing stores. Unfortunately I forget the name of this one.  But if you ever end up in it, say hi to buff Alf for me. 

Romper + Lulu*s
Sunglasses + Desert Daze find
