For those of us familiar with Abbott Kinney, Bountiful is sort of an, 'of course' place you need to stick your head into every so often just to wander in amazement at the magnitude of inventory they have. It's been here as long as I can remember and never changes accept they always seem to have more 'stuff' piled on to the piles. Where do I start... This place is curiosity shop meets, french atelier meets....hoarder with a wad of cash and good taste.
Need some antique shells? bleached star fish? An enormous clam shell (are we still working this trend?.... Ya, I think I'm still in to it. ) a lovely triple milled soap or a venetian glass to stick your toothbrushes, a vintage tin toy telephone, vintage rusting garden furnishings.... you get the idea.
Making your way to the back of the store you squeeze your way through a narrow passage of stacked mirrors and vintage cupboards
love the floors.
into the back section which only yields more.
I guess there's an upstairs too. I've never found a staircase and on this day, my meter was running out, so I snapped a few photos and called it a day.
Bountiful is a bit of a crazy house of beautiful treasures. If you're in Venice Beach, you really should stop in. You'll be amazed if nothing else at the endless amounts of incredible vintage finds.
