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.

Tamara Jacobs runs the LA beauty division at Atelier Management, working as an agent for hairstylists, makeup artists, wardrobe stylists and set designers. Her client list includes the likes of Taylor Jacobson, Chris Campbell and Laurie Trott. Here, she fills us in on her favorite gift shop in Silver Lake.
"I came across Hemingway and Pickett while helping a friend pick out sunglasses at Gogosha Optique in Silver Lake and I just fell in love. It's a great gift spot as well as a place to find something unique for yourself. I can't get enough of all the little trinkets in the store and the prints they carry. I recently bought an adorable brass feather ring by VeraMeat and I get compliments all the time! The mix and price range is eclectic but always curated impeccably. Every time I go in there I'll find a new treasure. Some days I just go to look at the new merchandise."
