Shopping In Long Beach

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Today was shopping day on E. 4th St. in Long Beach. With Luke gone back to Palm Springs to finish up the latest issue of Kustoms Illustrated magazine, I hooked up with fellow Tikiphile, Liz, for a trip to Long Beach. What a great bunch of stores. There's nothing like this back home! Unfortunately, by now, my budget had been shot, because my flight home was postponed for 2 days, due to an ice storm back home. The good news was that I got to stay in SoCal for 2 more days, the bad news was I really had to pinch pennies. This amazing store is called Meow. It's a veritable vintage department store with some of the best vintage clothes I've ever seen. There were 3 or 4 items I couldn't live without, but had to leave behind, due to finances! Here's some shots of this amazing store & their awesome collection of vintage displays.

Another great store on E. 4th Street is Liberty. More great vintage clothes & the largest selection of Rockabilly music I've seen in one store. Alas, due to lack of funds, I only purchased one G0-Getters CD.

Sneaky Tiki, another cool store.

Hawleywood's Barber Shop. Next trip, I'm gonna get my hair cut here.


  1. Fourth Street, or "Retro Row" is my favorite place to shop in Socal.

  2. Honestly, Kim. I think I could live in Meow! Next trip I'm going with a pocketful of cash.
