We are the purveyor of stylish, sexy, suspiciously addictive sunnies, inspiring your creativity since 2016. Our story starts in Los Angeles amidst a sizzling Fall heatwave. Creating new ways to style one pair of sunglasses was making us a little hot tempered. We craved a plethora of crazy-sexy-cool sunnies in crush-worthy colors that would up our outfit game without breaking the bank. We sketched. We shaped. We modeled. We tweaked. Approval hinged on 3 prerogatives: sunnies must be synonymous with style and sexy on any gender without the shocking price point. The collection grew and the antidote to status quo sunglasses was born. PERVERSE was its name, and the game would never be the same. Classic, edgy, and ambiguously sexy. PERVERSE sunglasses are designed with style and substance in mind. Frame your face – not your gender – with a plethora of unisex sunglasses that match your lippy and your unique personality.

The Last Bookstore
The Last Bookstore is California’s largest used and new book and record store. Currently in our third incarnation, we began in 2005 in a downtown Los Angeles loft. That’s when owner Josh Spencer took his decade of experience selling everything from cars to clothes online and focused instead on his first love: books. During the revitalization of downtown LA, we grew quickly to our current 20,000 sq. ft. space in the Spring Arts Tower at 5th & Spring.More Information
The name was chosen with irony, but seems more appropriate with each passing day as physical bookstores die out like dinosaurs from the meteoric impact of Amazon and e-books. We continue to BUY, SELL, and TRADE like we have from day one. In addition to over 250,000 NEW and USED books on two floors, including our new Arts & Rare Book Annex, our shared space includes tens of thousands of VINYL RECORDS and GRAPHIC NOVELS, a huge mezzanine level that includes the Labyrinth Above the Last Bookstore (with a back room of 100,000 books for $1 each!), Gather Yarn Shop, and the Spring Arts Collective gallery shops. Truly something for everyone.
Somehow we became one of the largest independent bookstores in the world still standing. We continue to be amazed at how we got here. It’s ALL thanks to people like you who want to keep actual books and records existing in the world. Join the cause — visit us soon!
