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.

At 27, Kyle Schuneman is already ranked as one of House Beautiful's "Next Wave of Top 20 Designers," a "Tastemaker" by Los Angeles Magazine and on Refinery29's "30 Under 30" list. His company, Live Well Designs, is a threefold venture consisting of interior design, art direction and prop styling and his colorful, classic style is already making a mark in numerous private residences and advertising campaigns for Target, CB2, Martha Stewart and Cost Plus World Market. Here, the talented interior designer points us towards Sunset Bazaar, his favorite spot for affordable finds with a Danish feel.
My go-to spot for vintage finds in LA for your house is Sunset Bazaar on the edge of Silverlake and Echo Park on Sunset. They have a lot of mid-century and Danish pieces mixed in with some random finds. They have really great prices for LA and are negotiable! I have bought pieces for clients and myself from this spot and I even had them build me a piece to match something they already have. So many stores in LA are overpriced and intimidating but these guys are approachable, cheap and have quality stuff.
