One of my favorite stops for shopping local is The Golden State
in Venice, California. Owner Stephanie Addis curates the most gorgeous collection of designed-in-California goods—of which many are made right in Los Angeles.
On my last visit I had to have this Alyson Wilson apron patched together from reclaimed denim—I love how even a jean pocket is salvaged for reuse! See Wilson's exclusives with The Golden State here (that quilt!) and for her full line, visit her Etsy shop.
