One of the original stores in LA's Chinatown this mainstay, with its iconic neon storefront, remains center court at Old Chinatown Central Plaza. Opened in 1938 by K.G. Louie, the traditional Chinese gifts, art and crockery store is still owned and operated by three generations of the Louie family. Browse through the rather dusty store for treasures such as Chinese cookbooks, traditional jewelry and furniture as well as vintage goods such as Chinese tea sets, silverware and porcelain wares.
