The Tortoise General Store is one my favorite haunts on Abbot Kinney.  It’s a great collection of Japanese housewares, gift objects, accessories etc.  The pricing is reasonable and the owners have a great tounge in cheek sensibility with the items they select.  I specifically love the Ny Chair. 

My parents had one of these back in the 70’s and 80’s and I learned to stand up by pulling myself up on their Ny Chair.  If only they had known back then that you can purchase the replaceable covers through Tortoise General Store.
