an Abbot Kinney adventure

Now that you've seen the handmade invitation for an amazing 30th birthday brunch and shopping excursion on Abbot Kinney in Venice, California, I thought I'd share the places we'll stop along our way. Here is the breakdown of the street map as it was sent to the girls who were invited. This way, each girl was able to plan out where she might go depending on the people on her holiday shopping list. Enjoy!


We'll sip mimosas and devour brunch at one of the best restaurants around!


One of V's favorite shops! Books, jewelry, women's clothes and gifts all for that person on your list who already has everything.

Killer kids clothes, toys, and the cuddliest stuffed dolls and animals.

Grab a cozy hoodie for your honey! (The kind you like to steal and wear yourself). Perfect plain tees and basics for him or her. 

The gracious owner will have everything 50% off (excluding jewelry and bath products). Just try to walk past without dreaming of owning one of the beautiful cake stands! Plus, they will have the place ready for us to toast with champagne!

Run on in and grab one of the BEST lattes in Los Angeles. Don't be scared of the hipsters. Go decaf if you must...this is a DON'T MISS.

If you want a signature scent for someone you LOVE, this is the place!

Trendy clothes and accessories. 

Pick up the perfect gadget gear for any techie dude in your world. 

A Scandinavian lifestyle gift shop with adorable kids' stuff, modern home accessories and more. 

If you are looking for a lifelong perfect leather and/or canvas piece (dopp kit, computer bag, etc.) for a special guy in your life; this is the place.

Talk about inspiration for everything home...pricey but worth the look. (You might even end up taking something home for yourself.)

The perfect last stop! Candles, stationery, and home office for gifts and the perfect to have some of your best presents wrapped.
