Silver Lake Gift shop heads to Echo Park

Storefront ReportECHO PARK — Gift shop Hemingway & Pickett has landed in Echo Park after spending five years in Silver Lake, reports Racked LA.

The shop, which hosted a reopening party earlier this month, at the corner of Echo Park Avenue and Duane Street replaced Otherwild, which itself moved to Los Feliz (a bit of gift shop-musical-chairs going on here).  Hemingway & Picket’s new storefront shares the building a Shepard Fairey mural that was recently returned to public view. In fact, shop owner Toby Hemingway played a role in the mural’s return.

The store offers accessories, home goods, designer handbags and stationery. In celebration of its five-year anniversary and new location, H&P is hosting a reopening party on Saturday, May 7 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

  1. That’s awesome ….no really it is

  2. Ah, baloney. Another store of useless overprices gimcracks and geegaws, How about a bank, (just a small one, with an ATM) a hardware store closer than Home Depot,, a laundrymat,a petstore closer than Blue Collar, a nursery (RIP Echo Gardens, who got so fked over at Avalon/EP,) a drugstore thats not a chain nightmare…theres more to a community than coffee, overpriced fashion, and ridiculous crapola like this place. And tho I wish them well, I really don’t get it. At all.

  3. grouchy old person

    The person in the stupid Shepard Fairey mural (Darby Crash) was a big Hitler fan. Hate speech – what a great contribution to the neighborhood.

  4. Is the date for the party listed correct here? It says it will be on May 7 which was a week ago.

  5. One of the best signs I’ve seen in a while. What was the store originally?

  6. What this side of town is really crying out for is our own Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. I imagine Silver Lake is a more likely location and would be closer to me but even if they located in Echo Park I would make the trip there with gratitude . With traffic what it is these days the trek to Melrose Place takes at minimum half of a day.
