The tides have changed for made-in-America marketplace Shelter Half, which once hosted homegrown brands at its former outpost in District La Brea (now occupied by one-time tenant Aether Apparel) and now hosts people at its cool AirBNB-like space. Following antique Americana-inspired brand Saint Rita Parlor, the hospitable brand is the next to take up residency at Liberty Fairs's Concept 8366 & 1/2 Space on West Third Street.
Open now through Sunday, March 1st, the space offers a range of apparel, adventure gear, art, music, and more. Expect to find menswear from Freenote, stylish cycling apparel by swrve, fashionable outdoorwear by Battenwear, handmade backpacks by Kletterwerks, small-batch scents by DASEIN Fragrance, restored vintage eyewear from RetroSpecs, Polaroid film by the Impossible Project, vinyl by Analog Record Shop, and much more.
Shelter Half at Concept 8366 & 1/2 is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12am to 7pm; closed Monday.
