More details are emerging about the big TOMS compound coming to Abbot Kinney. Yesterday, WWD reported that the store would have a cafe and space for film screenings and workshops; today, neighborhood blogger Yo! Venice chimes in with a photo of the space, a street address (no 1344) and a few more tidbits.
It seems that Blake Mycoskie has a fondness for fresh juices: He's enlisted Pressed Juicery to provide the beverages, while Valerie Confections will offer its LA-made sweets and artisan coffee will be brewed from Cafécito Organico beans. The store opens next Saturday.
