It's deja vu all over again on Vermont in Los Feliz Village: first, quirky vintage/new sellers Oou left and were replaced by quirky vintage/new sellers Weltenbuerger. Then Pinkberry was replaced by Paradis, another purveyor of frosty treats. Next week, the former Atmosphere space will open as Co-op 28 Handmade and Indie Designs. Like its predecessor, Co-op 28 will put cool local and indie designers in the spotlight. But the new boutique will offer a much broader array of merchandise -- everything from wall art, rock posters, leather goods and pottery to baby stuff, bath and body, clothing and more. Talk about a quick change: we keep peeping in the window every time we walk by, and it looks like it's really happening. The big grand opening party is June 10.
