Our Favorite Shops on Abbot Kinney
The next time you find yourself strolling along Abbot Kinney in Venice, make sure you visit two of our favorite stores, Tortoise and Chariots on Fire.
Tortoise is a Japanese dry goods store featuring everything from cooking utensils to bonsai shears. Don’t forget the store behind the store - you will find unique Japanese decorative ceramics, unusual jewelry and textiles.
Chariots on Fire is part gallery, part gift store. They are best known for finding unique artists such as Matoko Kagoshima. His playful ceramics have gained a cult-like status amongst so many of our friends. No wonder why Matoko’s works are so limited.
