hot day. cool stuff...


It has been unseasonably hot in Los Angeles.  I am not a fan of the heat.  I know, it's a "dry heat" though I do believe it has become much more humid over the years.  Granted, it is not the hot, sticky and gross summers of Chicago & NYC where I spend many years trying to cool off anyway I could.  What was really enjoyable were the very defined change of Seasons.  I am one of the weirdos that enjoys Fall & Winter.  

So, as I was driving from one meeting to another my mind raced (it could have been my third iced Americano) to all the places I would miss if I moved from Los Angeles.  I have been giving this thought much attention as of late due to some new and exciting developments (will speak of these at a later date when appropriate).  There are other cities I would like to work & live. 

One of those places is DEAN.  A very small but perfectly situated leather goods & acceessories store in the Silver Lake section of L.A.  It's next to all sorts of great little shops, restaurants, coffee houses and a fantastic gelato place across the street.  A wonderful, eclectic mix.  If you're ever is L.A., check that area out.  Cafe Stella, almost next door to Dean, is a wonderful little place to have dinner as well.  

My leather satchel that I carry on "Rate My Space" is from there as is my green wallet.  

I would miss DEAN.  I could always visit, or shop on line.
