4th Street District. Long Beach, CA
Jack & I cruised on over to the 4th Street shopping district in Long Beach today.
4th street district is merely a block long (located between Cherry & Junipero), but it is jam packed with vintage furniture stores, collectible thrift shops, and unique used clothing stores themed by era.
Particularly, vintage furniture aficionados will love stores like Xcape, Deja Vu, and Ruum. These small shops feel less like a retail experience and more like a well curated gallery of design.
American modern, Danish modern, and Heywood Wakefield - go to Xcape
Art-Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavia - go to Deja Vu
20th century decorative arts - go to Ruum
If you got the time and you love design, I think you'll really enjoy a day trip to the 4th street district. A wonderful secret, uncovered.
