The Golden Egg Has Cracked

When did it happen?

It started quietly, slowly. Just a fine crack. First signs? Was it when we happily waited in a long line to order a cup of coffee off a menu of rare coffee choices.  That’s when a cup of coffee became precious.

Take a look. We’re not us. We left funky, unique and fun. We are now shiny, slick, fabulous — and ordinary. The ship sailed.

Our edginess is gone.  It sold for $17.

Shops we have lost on Abbot Kinney. We miss them.
