I love Hermosa Beach for about a thousand different reasons- #3 (trumped only by the beach and the people) is because of the amazing, unique shops that you can find all over the town. One of my favorites is a little place on Pier Avenue called Wicked +. They’re great for about a million more reasons… but one of them is that they give back to the community.
A program they’re currently a part of the Apolis Bangladesh Project, an awesome corporation that gives back to the artisans who make the bags- and also the local Hermosa Beach school district! They’re $68– and 10% of those proceeds go directly to the Hermosa Beach Education Foundation. How cool is that? Also, I heard a rumor that only 31 cities have their own personalized bag, and Hermosa Beach was lucky enough to be one of them! Rock on Hermosa Beach…
