  • Part of the bestselling 111 Places/111 Shops series with over 150 titles and 1 million copies in print worldwide

Beyond the crowded star-paved boulevards of Hollywood and famously posh boutiques of Rodeo Drive, is another Los Angeles; a hidden shopper's paradise, brimming with hundreds of charming, eclectic, curious, nostalgic, glamorous and quirky neighborhood stores, restaurants, and bars that are practically unknown to tourists. From Pasadena to the Pacific Coast Highway, discover the secret haunts and favorite local specialty shops of starlets and mere mortals alike. Wear the hottest designers before they get famous; get your knit on at a yarn-filled emporium; satisfy your sweet tooth at the world's first "cupcake ATM;" indulge your devotion to handmade American craftsmanship with a pair of custom-designed kicks; score some cast-off celebrity bling at a Beverly Hills pawn shop; navigate a two-block alley crammed with 150 discount shops. It's all yours for the taking in the City of Angels.
