Your furniture sounds fun and funky. Have you tried the Rose Bowl Swap meet? Ebay? Craigs List?
There used to be a ton of consignment shops in LA. None anymore. What I recommend doing is taking photos of your furniture and go in to the shios on La Brea, Melrose, Silverlake, La Cienega and Vence and see if any of those place just want to buy your furnuture. I know they do buy stuff this way as a client of mine just sold his living room set just this way to a show on Melrose.
This is a question that confuses many people.. There is the Manhattan Village Mall which is a great shopping center on Rosecrans and Sepulveda featuring lovely stores and restaurants along with a Ralph's Market and CVS pharmacy.
Directly behind the Mall is the gated community of Manhattan Village . This is the only gated community in Manhattan Beach and consists of single family homes and patio and court homes. The entry to the residential community is off Marine Avenue.... more
Twenty-five years ago if you lived in the South Bay your only choice for shopping was Fashion Square in Del Amo or going up the Hill to the Peninsula Shopping Center in Palos Verdes. My how the times have changed! While Fashion square is bigger and better then ever and the Peninsula Shopping center has had a major upgrade there are new choices where you can shop 'til you drop. The Galleria in Redondo features Nordstrom's. Macy's and Mervyn's plus other shops including Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Sharper Image and Abercrombie & Fitch to name a few. In Manhattan Beach you will find the Manhattan Beach Mall with Macy's for Men and Macy's for Women plus a Pottery Barn, Williams and Sonoma and the Gap. A block away Plaza El Segundo is nearing completion and features a Cost Plus World market, Whole Foods, Best Buy, Sur la Mer and some exciting new restaurants.
Try downtown Manhattan and Hermosa for some cute boutiques and Riviera Village where Jonathan's still reigns supreme.... more
Not at all. The Aquarium of the Pacific has its own multi structure parking lot. If full, the convention center and The Pike are right across the street and Rainbow Harbor is right next door, all of which have plenty of available parking. Or if you want to go completely stress free, just valet your car.... more
Shopping in Los Angeles is divine! One can find anything they want in this city. There are numerous streets with miles of boutiques as well as wonderful indoor and outdoor shopping centers, farmers markets in every neighborhood, exotic imports, plus very high end shopping in areas such as Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive.

St. Promenade in Santa Monica, West 3rd. St. in the Miracle Mile area, The Grove in the Miracle Mile area, the Malibu Country Mart in Malibu, Topanga Canyon shops in Topanga Canyon, Abbot Kinney and Main Street in Venice Beach, and the Beverly Center and Rodeo Drive and Beverly Drive areas in Beverly Hills. Luxury and natural grocery stores such as Trader Joes, Bristol Farms, Whole Foods, Wild Oats, etc. are all over town and one never has to look far to find organic foods--especially at the local farmers' markets.... more
Long Beach is a wonderful diverse city with many different stores to offer.
