Peeking into the left window of LSTORE, you’d almost be certain that the space was a gallery or showroom. You would only be half wrong, as part of the space is used as LART N PUBLIC where young, up-and-coming artists exhibit their work. Renovated in 2011from what as once a residential home, the rest of the space is an arts and crafts store with items for purchase.With everything from beautifully carved cherry wood stools to elegant ceramic vases and ostentatious accessories, the store boasts “edginess” with everything that they sell (we even spied a Barbie doll stuck inside a seashell) and all of the products are from promising young Korean artists. “There was nothing here when we opened. It was just a street that was easy to walk on,” explains Director Lee Jung-eun. “And we figured we didn’t need to be in a busy neighborhood because this isn’t the kind of place where people just walk in – customers seek us out and come here to come here.”
