If you had out-of-town guests you asked you to direct them to some of the better indie shopping spots in LA, what would you tell them? You'd tell them to check out Gridskipper's list of the Top 10 indie boutiques , that's what. They've included newbies like Zimmermann, and entries as far-flung as Optx in the 818. It's a good list to help us natives, bust out of our normal shopping ruts, too. [Gridskipper]
