while i still think it's hard to find great eats in long beach there is one thing i know you can find in lb and that's unique vintage and retro items. blu button boutique is a women's fashion and accessories shop on 4th street. they carries an assortment of retro inspired clothing with a mix of vintage goods. if you could imagine modcloth.com's brick and mortar store this would be it. the owner esther kim is one of the friendliest and warmest shop owners i've met. every time i am in there she's always helpful and striking up a conversation. if you're ever in the area please do stop by and say hello!
are there any other shops you love to visit in long beach? i'd love to hear about them! i think i've covered my favorites.
