Friday Faves | Favorite Long Beach Spots
It's been exactly a year since we moved to Long Beach + within this year I feel so lucky to have met so many wonderful people! Long Beach has become our home. From the beautiful community that makes up this town to the local minded shops, to the beach scene, Long Beach is our perfect spot.
I've gone around town + rounded up my favorite spots in Long Beach to shop, eat + drink! By no means are these the only good places, there are too many, just the top favorites from my list!
If you're not from Long beach but make your way over here be sure to refer back to this!
Favorite Long Beach Spots
6th + Detroit holds a very special place in my heart. It's my fave home decor shop in town + sells some of the best plants! The crew that works there is also some of the best people around.

The quintessential Long Beach spot for new + vintage clothes, home goods, funny cards + vinyls.

There is no where else where you can find cool, minimalist clothes + accessories for a killer price. I love everything about this shop + they just so happen to split their shop with my favorite plant queen!
Peacock + Co is run by the plant queen I mentioned above. The shop is a magical little plant store that bursts with greenery, pots, + candles! Whenever I need a new green, this is the first place I go.

Urban Americana was actually my first Long Beach Maker of the Month! You can't even call this place a shop, it's a colorful + quirky vintage mecca. The warehouse is chic on it's on, + you'll need a good 3-4 hours to browse.
A short walk down the street from my pad is the perfect neighborhood vintage shop. Vintage home decor, clothes + tones of treasures are what you'll find.
Wild Child is beyond what any party store attempts to be. From birthdays to weddings there are so many great finds, it is definitely worth a trip, even if you're not party planning.

I found Ay, qué Vintage by spending a lot of time over at 6th + Detroit : ) they're neighbors + curate some of the best vintage clothing I've ever seen + have beyond reasonable prices.
