The Kids Are Alright Moving Online!

After 6 1/2 years we are closing our brick & mortar and moving online! We have been fortunate enough to do what we love and share it with you in Echo Park & Long Beach.

We're not leaving, just downsizing a little. You can still visit us at for all your jewelry, clothing & gift needs and wants. The online store will still have a great selection of unique and independant lines. We will also be adding an Art section and offer great pieces from some of our favorite local artists.

With change comes growth and The Kids... are definitely growing.
Thank you to all our friends, customers, family and designers who have been a part of this journey so far.

The Kids Are Alright

DIY Workshops in Long Beach

We've taken a break from the workshops lately, but if you are feeling crafty our friend Kim Kessler is having "DIY Workshops" every Thursday at The Artisan's Lair right here in lovely Long Beach. Kim has led quite a few workshops at "The Kids..." Just to name a few, the Apron Workshop, Leather Cuff and Make a Tote using Your Fav Tee.

She will be at The Artisan's Lair every Thursday from 5pm-8pm leading "Make & Take" workshops and giving sewing lessons. With the holidays coming up this is the time to get crafty & make some great gifts. I hear the cost for most workshops is only $25.

Hello Kitty!

We're so excited about Hello Kitty coming to Royal T in Culver City. This is going to be amazing. The show opens today, but tomorrow they're having a day full of festivities. Check the link down below for times and activities going on. One of our favorite artists, Melissa Contreras has contributed a piece to this show. I have a feeling it's going to be packed, after all Hello Kitty is making an appearance as well. It's HELLO KITTY!

Artist Reception & Jewelry Trunk Show This Saturday!

This Saturday we are excited to welcome back Lisa Faye Dawson & her new mixed media series "The Seattle Project". We just hung her work yesterday & let me tell ya, it's amazing. There are at least 3 pieces I'm obsessed with. The last show we had with Lisa practically sold out. Don't miss this one.

Also joining us is jewelry designer Leisa Johnson with her latest collection "Soul to Silver". Unique, one of a kind pieces created in sterling silver, copper and semi-precious stones. Each custom organic design is handmade and uniquely fabricated. I just got a sneak peak today. Her collection is beautiful and powerful.

So come on by Saturday from 5pm-8pm. Art, jewelry, wine & 20% off selected items in the store!
