wacko squirrel

Wacko is the funky epicenter of Los Angeles shopping in the Los Feliz district. It's a toy store, a book store, a treasure trove of quirky Americana and an emporium of kitsch art. For shoppers who appreciate both a Santeria altar and cat butt-shaped refrigerator magnets. Great selection of LA-centric books and calendars, plus scented soaps and oils from around the world.

skylight books

One of the last independent bookstores in LA, Skylight has survived competition from mega chain stores and Amazon by specializing in poetry, political literature, sub-culture magazines and hard to find novels. A well-read staff always helps to raise the intellectual bar for Los Angeles shopping. Skylight also hosts frequent readings by local authors.
