OK, so that's an item only a few of us will be excited to find, but I'm very happy to pay a few cents more to buy them right down the street instead of national chain stores. (Though I still do love thee, Target.) Locali "Conscious Convenience" is now open on Franklin just east of Mayfair in the standard issue La Mancha-esque early 80s strip mall that also houses the mediocre-but-much-improved Pimai, and I expect to pop in there a lot. I hope the Bronson/Beachwood Canyon folks show support for a new local venture trying to service our little everyday needs and conduct business on a better, more responsible eco and social level. I'll definitely go back for more of that cabbage soup I tried today, and encourage my neighbors and other parents at the park to check it out, and hope that James doesn't get too used to having such easy access to Carmela ice cream. (Check out my LA Weekly newsletter this week for a bit more info.)
