Although this much-needed rain is offering LA a taste of what it's like in colder climates, let's face it: it's never not sandal season. For those yearning for a perpetual summer, you'll be pleased to know that The Original Farmers Market has just scored a colorful Havaianas store that's here to stay.
Located across next door to Dylan's Candy Bar and across from The Grove's Topshop, the Brazilian flip-flop company's new home is the first on the West Coast to integrate their new global format of the modern Brazilian Marketplace where you can make/embellish your own sandals and shop rain boots. Offering styles for women, men, and kids, the space also is the first to stock the brand's 2015 collection and accessories.
Havaianas at The Grove is open Monday through Thursday from 10am to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 10pm, and Sunday from 10am to 8pm.
