Signs of change in Echo Park

Workers begin removing La Popular sign

"La" for sale

La Popular, a long time Echo Park furniture store formerly known as Stone Bros., closed up last year. But the  large turquoise and lavendar La Popular sign remained above the Sunset Boulevard store front—until Tuesday. That’s when a crew of workers dismantled the metal sign – backlit with neon – and installed a new sign with the names of the new tenants: Wells Tile & Antiques and Eric Architectural Salvage, which moved into the space in June. If anyone is nostalgic for the sign and has room for approximately five-foot high letters,  Eric Ramos  already has the “La” on display inside the store and plans to sell off the letters – light bulb and wiring not included.

While the big La Popular sign came down, the building still bears a small reminder of its previous tenant.  A few steps outside the front door, the words “Stone Bros.” are inscribed on the floor.

  1. Take down that whole metal sheet while you’re at it.

    Let the brick shine.

  2. I drove by today. It looks like they did take the metal sheet down.

    • Metal siding still on. The new sign is basically a huge banner strung over the entire area.

      Would love to see what’s underneath. Maybe they’ll restore it someday?
