Silver Lake Holiday Shopping Guide

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday… They all came and went. Holiday shopping accomplished? Zero. Yes, I admit it. I’m a procrastinator. And if you’re like me, you know how brutal holiday slacker-shopping can be. As December chugs to it’s wrapping paper covered conclusion, frenzied shoppers hit the mall in a panicked wave, grabbing whatever is left, not pausing to contemplate: Will my dad appreciate this Old Navy Trapper Hat? … Whatever! Put it in the cart! Mark it off the list!

This year, make life easier and shop your neighborhood instead. And (note to self) maybe try to do it before the bitter end. Check out some of Take Sunset’s favorite spots in Silver Lake for gift giving…


Lawson Fenning – There are tons of great gifts at my all-time favorite Silver Lake furniture store, from glassware to hanging terrariums, slate cheese boards, rugs, books and a tons of other tasteful and stylish gifts. 1618 Silver Lake Blvd.

Hemingway And Pickett – This shop offers off-beat housewares like Realax Stools by Cloud that have axe handle legs (perfect for subtly passive aggressive gift giving!) and Rorschach inkblot pillows and tea towels. They also carry art, accessories ornaments and cards. 3208 W Sunset Blvd.

OK – A one-stop-shop for specialty housewares, including dinnerware from Heath and an assortment of ceramics, glass, sculpture, books, jewelry and even kid’s stuff. 1724 1/2 Silverlake Blvd.

Kellygreen Home – The perfect spot to grab eco-friendly items for the home that are still incredibly stylish. 4008 Santa Monica Blvd.


Mohawk General Store – They have scarves and (swoon) shoes from Rachel Comey, A.P.C. and Comme Des Garcons leather bags, jewelry by Samma and so much other brilliant stuff you’ll have a hard time not shopping for yourself. 4011 W Sunset Blvd.

Vivier and Bentley – If you’re shopping for a stylish woman, all you have to do is walk in this handbag and jewelry shop and grab the first thing that catches your eye. Trust me, she’ll love it. 1404 Micheltorena St.

Painted Bird In Silver Lake

I love it when new stores open in the neighborhood, especially places where I can shop without maxing out my credit card! Back in April, Husband and wife team Nate Archer and Sunny Walker open Painted Bird in Silver Lake, just a few blocks from Sunset Junction. This is the shop’s second location. The original Painted Bird in San Francisco has been around since 2005.

Painted Bird carries a mix of vintage fashions for men and women, including layering basics, printed sundresses, denim, knits, silk pieces, handbags and jewelry. There are also new pieces from brands like Them Jeans and Alternative Apparel. Everything in the shop is marked at an affordable level, with most price tags under $80.

You can also find Painted Bird’s own line of handmade shoes, including oxfords, lace ups, buckle boots and sandals, all priced under $90! They sell out quickly when in stock, but they’re definitely worth checking out. Plus, you can buy, sell or trade your unwanted clothes for 35% in cash or 55% in trade for new (to you) merchandise. With all the affordability, Painted Bird doesn’t have that disorganized everything must go! Urban Outfitters sale section vibe. Rather, it feels like the ultra-cool closet of a vintage shopping pro. And lucky us–we get to raid it.

Mohawk General Store Re-Launches Online

Mohawk General Store just re-launch their online shop. It features an expanding selection of designers, and brand-new picks for spring are being added daily. It’s always worth stopping by Mohawk General’s brick and mortar store–I usually want to transport the entire shop back to my living room–but browsing their online selection is great too. Here are some of my current favorites…

1.) FLUO Leather Colors from Comme Des Garcons Pulling out this ultra-bright leather wallet would make paying bleak things, like your taxes, seem more cheerful.

2.) Wood Wood Adelaide Dress The rest of the country is optimistically saying, “spring is right around the corner!” while mentally preparing for the possibility of another full month of bad weather. Here in LA, it’s sunny & 70 degrees. Celebrate your choice of location! Buy a dress.

3.) Costalots 83’s in Rose Or shades! These Costalots 83’s have a classic shape, a double bridge, a logo engraved Carl Zeiss lens, and a warm rose shade.

4.) Serge Gainsbourg Aux Armes Et CaeteraRelax and be cool while listening to Serge…

Mohawk General Store


I’ve been eyeing Mohawk General Store since it recently moved to Sunset Junction. Mohawk, the clothing and accessories store, joined forces with Amsterdam Modern, the by-appointment-only Van Nuys warehouse filled with mid-century furniture and 20th-century Dutch designs. And now they’re in one convenient location where you can get everything from cute new shoes, like these Rachel Comey booties in black leather that I am drooling over. (Hurry up and re-stock, MGS!)


Or housewears, like this Small Hanging Geo Planter in White by the always-awesome Kelly Lamb!


You can also pick up contemporary housewares, as well as American, Dutch, and Danish vintage furniture.
