Groove

Feb 9, 2015

DSC_0118It’s on the boulevard, Eagle Rock Boulevard, which has corners of interest, spots of attraction, but is no Old Pasadena or South Lake Avenue, which can name drop and present a thriving front. But Eagle Rock seems to breathe easier, be casual and intriguing without trying. It’s a place to find hidden treasures and favorite haunts.

Groove, or more formally Groove Tree L.A., is a small store on the Boulevard that’s just celebrated its first anniversary, which says a lot in this economic era. Leigh, the owner, searches high and low, here and everywhere to find eclectic, beautiful, useful, fun, and unique items, emphasizing local artists.

“For the past twenty years, I’ve been prepping for this,” Leigh says. Groove is a gift store, first and foremost, she continues, with unique, affordable gifts (many items are in the $20-$40 range) that combine art and function.

Leigh carries glassware, handmade bags and purses, journals and notebooks, handmade jewelry, costume jewelry, stuffed animals, serving platters, hats and scarves, card pockets made from recycled books, and coasters made from reclaimed record labels. There’s a kids corner, handmade aprons, little vases, frames, tape dispensers, serving plates, serving spoons, bowls, and decorative pillows and sculptures. Stock changes regularly, which makes every visit a new adventure.

    What I love about Eagle Rock is that it is filled with the kind of independent shops that long ago thrived in Old Pasadena
