Located on the famous street Abbot Kinney in Venice, Bohemian Exchange is a flamboyant Parisian style oasis. Like stepping onto the set of the movie Moulin Rouge, one is transported into another era. This bawdy boutique screams 1920’s Paris in a big way, yet offers sassy edgy designs at amazing prices for the young hipsters who flock to this whimsical boutique.
Feathers, vintage furniture, bodacious fashions, even bohemian style paintings adorn the walls. Beautiful flowing dresses, skirts and flamboyant jackets draw in excited customers that have stumbled upon this wonderful find. It is a treasure box filled with brilliant art pieces. This sexy “wearable art” definitely makes a statement.
Accessories line the store such as feather earrings and hair clips, even carnival type masks, sporty hats and unique leather bags. Two gorgeous Rubenesque cats, Truffles and Kallisti watch over the store, usually from high on a shelf nestled beside a barrage of feathered hats.
Make sure to visit the famous Princess Dress-Up Room, which feels like being invited into a sexy boudoir of an audacious renowned Femme Fatale.
Bohemian Exchange is a “green business” and offers something different than most stores in LA. Deborah Lashever, owner, finds incredible merchandise which is a mixture of vintage resale, along with designer and fair trade items.
She also supports local artists and world travelers by selling their beautiful clothing and gift items on consignment. The motto of Bohemian Exchange is, “Be the change you wish to see in the World,” and Lashever insists the time to give back is now.
Stop in this lavish bodacious boutique. Bohemian Exchange is located at 1358 Abbot Kinney right off California, 90291. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bohemian-Exchange/71345516381.
