I live in Atwater near The Flashdance headquarters. This location offers some benefits, such as: Tacos Villa Corona, Proof Bakery, The Juice LA, and a rad retail shop called Individual Medley. Shortly after I moved here, I became incapable of walking by this shop without staring awkwardly through the window, bombarding the register and leaving an hour later with a huge bag.
In short, this store rules.
There are many reasons for this. For example, Monica and Justin (the owners) are possibly the most mellow and friendly people who have ever owned a retail business. Check out this great interview they gave on Kinfolk. And they work with great artists. From clothing and accessories to beauty products to books and home stuff, Individual Medley has rallied some of the most talented and respected makers in LA and across the country.
We invited Individual Medley and their contributors over to our studio, The Social for a day. It created an opportunity for some of the artists to meet for the first time. What resulted was some good memories, some new friendships, and this video, where you’ll see a handful of talents showing off the products they make.
Individual Medley is located at 3176 Glendale Blvd. Go there.
