We went to Atwater Village this weekend for brunch and with the intention on wandering around the main Glendale Blvd strip to grab holiday gifts. Surprise: we sadly didn’t have that many options. We had built up the area in our head to be cutesy and homey but we realized walking around that there were a lot more food storefronts than we thought and way too practical spaces that don’t lend themselves to be casual gift shops. We founds some drinkable goodies at 55 Degrees and, as we strolled North on Glendale, we noticed a peculiar store that was what we imagined to be all of Atwater Village: Individual Medley.
Individual Medley is your standard “cool” retail store. Their emphasis is on clothes and small lifestyle items like TW Workshop pots and Juniper Ridge goods. The store is divided into men’s goods on the left side of the store (lots of flannels and t-shirts) and women’s goods on the right side (some flannels too and lots of comfy sweaters). The middle of the room has various home goods which, for December, have a special holiday slant. As you approach the front counter, you notice that they have a generous amount of children’s goods. This isn’t just toys but cute baby clothes that I wanted in my size and little toys that I could have purchased for myself.
The store is very homey and feels like you are inside an indoor campsite. The interior of the store is super understated and the window dressing they made for the holiday are totally precious. The store excels in that it is very affordable and does a good job of celebrating local makers without putting you in a coma from knocking you on the head with locality. The service is nice and this was certainly the most populated store we popped into this weekend. You’ll want to stop by.
Individual Medley is located on 3176 Glendale Blvd and is open Monday through Saturdays from 10AM to 7PM and Sundays from 10AM to 5PM. According to the nice sales guy, they frequently have events and they would always love for you to stop in and hang with them. Check out more on the store here.
