A new vintage boutique has opened in Echo Park. The owner of Bear Cat told Eastsider LA that she plans to stand out from all of the neighborhood's other vintage stores "with a combination of affordably priced vintage and new apparel and accessories created by indie designers." The shop will also offer records and tapes. [Eastsider LA]
