Gotta love Abbot Kinney!  On the 4th Sunday of every month you can also check out Topanga Vintage Market at Pierce College, Woodland Hills.  It's considered one of LA's best sources for vintage (CBSLocal, Angeleno, CA Home+Design ...) Over here by Topanga Mall and The Village.  Come through Topanga canyon on the way over and check out lots of great vintage shops including Hidden Treasures and Hill Billy Hip!
