Los Angeles has more stores than anyone could physically tackle, but somehow we always keep returning to the usual suspects. To break out of the rut, we've asked some local shopping and fashion gurus to provide their hidden retail gems—those unique stores around LA that we might not all know about. Cue the Beatles: We're about to get a little help from our friends.

Chris Horan is a Los Angeles-based stylist and creative consultant. After interning and assisting a handful of West Coast fashion directors, he ventured out on his own. Horan has launched a fashion licensing agency called Creative Management Collective, styles Disney star Debby Ryan and is a regular contributor to Hello Giggles. His favorite place for knick-knacks? Inheritance on Beverly.
"My partner and I had driven past Inheritance a couple times and finally stopped to check it out one day. Safe to say it wasn't the last. We regularly pop by to pick up unique pieces for our home or just to gather inspiration. This place is stocked with a great assortment of eclectic art, pillows, accessories and other knick knacks. They have a mix of new and vintage, but with reasonable prices. There is always an item I pick up and smile when I realize it isn't incredibly expensive and I will actually be able to leave with it in my arms. If nothing else, check it out for the atmosphere...small, charming and with a rustic staircase leading to a loft filled with more goodies."
