Echo Park newest – and perhaps temporary – boutique opened its doors shortly before Thanksgiving in a Sunset Boulevard storefront the size of a living room. Blood is the New Black Market, featuring an assortment of clothing, gifts and accessories, in the 1800 block of Sunset Boulevard next to one of Echo Park’s longtime businesses, Herb’s Key Shop. The Eastsider has contacted the owners for more information but the website said the shop is open through Dec. 30.
* Update: The pop-up store – all 175-square-feet of it – will feature items priced no higher than $50, according to a store press release. The store hours, from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m., and location are geared to capture some of the crowd attending shows at The Echo across the street.
