|AND IF YOU believe that, you might also believe Silver Lake is an "artistic enclave." From a Wisebread article on strategic thriftstore shopping:|
"My best friend Lysa is coocoo for expensive art books and cookbooks. Her number one thriftstore? A branch of Out of the Closet in out of the way Atwater village in Los Angeles. Because it's out of the way and because the people donating are largely from nearby Silverlake (an artistic enclave). Books that would cost up to $100 she winds up getting for $1. Her best find? A $7 cursive typewriter."
