So finally went in

don_socalJune 5, 2012

There is an old Spanish type building downtown with a center courtyard and three stories of shops and apartments around the outside. I have been in there many years ago but not in maybe twenty years or more. Missy used to rep and sell baskets and stuff to many shops in the LA basin and always raved about how nice it was.

There is a store of English imports there and we went in yesterday. Found Taylor's of Harcourt Yorkshire Gold and Typhoo teas there. Had the Taylor's this morning and enjoyed it's smoothness. Nice find.

Sounds like the kind of place I would like to go to, but nothing like this around here.

It's always fun to wander into a place like that not knowing what to expect.I would really enjoy going through some of those shops.

Cudos to Missy to get you in there and I'm glad you found it rewarding.
