If you find yourself having an iced coffee with some babes at Intelligentsia, don’t forget to go next door to check out Driftwood. It is a very well curated vintage and designer store, filled with little treasures and trinkets. Although when I say “filled”, please take this in a minimal sort of way.
The shop also carries a line of furniture made out of reclaimed wood. Each piece of furniture is stamped and numbered, and part of the profits go to Tree People, the nature Conservancy. Pretty sweet, non? I would happily furnish my house solely with reclaimed timber.
The vintage pieces are a little pricey, but they are all in super mint condition and carefully selected, so it is worth paying a premium. When I was there, they had a whole range of Rachel Antonoff for Bass saddle shoes but also clothes from Vessels, American Vintage & Saint James.
I didn’t buy any clothes when I was there, but I found some cute notebooks and hesitated a while about a book I really wanted, but would have been waaaay to heavy to bring back to the U.K. Sad.
I was in L.A. as a guest of QSW.
