I hope everyone is doing well & had a good weekend!😁 I wanted to share our mini day trip to Los Angeles, CA. We had so much fun & I highly recommend going to check out the Funko Hollywood store if you haven’t yet. 🙌🏽
I would suggest you get there early possibly before they open , we arrived at 10:20 am & they opened at 10:00 am & the line was already wrapped around the side of the street. We waited about 2 hours so that is why I say to show up early. You have to wear your masks at all times inside, but to be honest the wait was definitely worth it my son loved it & so did his friend! We had so much fun, & took so many pictures. It was like a museum! They have everything sectioned off in a great way so its easy to find what your looking for & each regular Funko pop is $11.00 & the movie edition ones were $30, I believe they also have some other special edition one’s which I think were $15.00, so prices are fair.
My favorite sections would have to be the horror section ; I am a HUGE horror movie fan, so I thought this section was super cool & actually really cute 😆 and the old school section ( not sure if that is what you would call it) it had a lot of old school looking McDonald’s toys (not sure if anyone remembers those chicken nugget toys or the hamburglar? Lol) the Flintstones, Gumby, just so many of those old school characters! I also thought it was cool that they had a little Stranger Things section . who else loves this show? I thought the Dustin Funko was so adorable ! 🥰 They also sell other little accessories; Pez, Wallets, Backpacks, etc. Next time my oldest isn’t with his dad we might have to take another trip and go back, I think he would also like it a lot.
I would definitely take sunscreen & put some on before you go just in case your waiting a long time, I ended up burnt on my chest. It did not feel too hot but the sun was hitting us & I did not notice until after the fact.
We ended up eating at this Mexican flea market, I believe its off of Olympic, but I am not 100% sure since I was not driving. I think my friend’s were looking for a food truck they saw on Tik Tok but those trucks usually start selling at night. This flea market was cool it reminded me of Tijuana, Mexico if you have been there then you know what I’m talking about. The only thing I noticed that things were expensive , the food was very pricey for what it was. I don’t like to be super picky with food, but the only thing we ordered that I thought was good were the quesadillas & the Agua Fresca’s. So I would go back to shop & look around, but probably not to eat. I found these super adorable Cantarito’s with the Loteria images painted on them , they were so well made! I wanted to buy a good amount of them, but I only ended up getting one 😐 they were $7 but she sold them to us for $6. She had most of the images from the card game, they were all different colors and as you can see they are very good quality. I will definitely be making some Margaritas or drinking some wine with ice 😋
We also visited The Grove , there isn’t too many stores to shop at but I do like that they have a grass area, live music & a trolley. Its been a long while since I have been there, the kids played we grabbed some coffee and just enjoyed the rest of the afternoon before we headed home. Seeing my son’s happy face, being able to spend time with people we care about & making memories honestly makes me feel complete.
I appreciate you reading & visiting my page. 🤍
