So on Tuesday I went to Long Beach to visit my cousin, he came in for work. While down there we explored the area next to the convention center since thats where he was working. There were so many adorable small shops and restaurants that made me feel like I wasn't in California. One of my favorite shops was one that was owned by another FIDM Alumni Kat. The Shop is called Make Collectives, and it has a little of fashion, home decor and beauty. Here are a few photos from that day.
My cousin Doug, he's a wedding Photographer from Pennsylvania but he's slowly expanding so if you would like to see his work here's his website.
Here's one of the mugs that Make Collectives have in the shop. I thought it was great for me but I didn't get it. :(
We than meet up with his boss, at Berlin Bistro for brunch.
And than right next to the restaurant was this record shop called Finger Prints. I feel like if you go to Long Beach you should definitely visit these three places. But I really feel like you should visit MADE in Long Beach. The owner of the shop seriously helped us find some amazing stores and told us about some events that were happening this week.
