Looking for something Australian and manly? This new Silver Lake shop might be for you

Hemingway & Pickett shop under construction.

Musician Toby Burke has taken over a Sunset Boulevard storefront – the former Mesh & Lace space – and plans to sell gifts, housewares and art, with many of the items made and designed in his native featuring Australia. Hemingway & Pickett – named after the Melbourne barber shop owned by Burke’s grandfather – is scheduled to open in May in the 3200 block of Sunset Boulevard near Descanso Drive. The shop, which features a ceiling and walls paneled with wood from shipping palettes, will carry everything from hand-crafted pottery and art to small furnishings and kitchenware but “with a slightly more masculine sensibility than most Los Angeles home, gift and design stores,” said spokesman O’Ryan McKinney.  Said Burke, in a press release:

This is chance for me to share my love for the beauty and ingenuity of Australian art and design, as well as locally-sourced finds.
