Wee Three Children’s Store's fall event rolls out an expansive collection of kids' apparel, toys, and gifts with discounts of up to 90 percent off normal prices. Clothing lines from across the globe volunteer to abandon cozy racks and bedeck tots in natural, cotton fibers that are both comfortable and safe for baby's tender skin. Shoppers can snag Babysoy kimono bodysuits (regularly $16), which wrap around infant torsos with easy-to-snap buttons, or adorn little legs in the soft threads of slip-on pants (regularly $12), ideal for shaky first steps and riding the neighbor's cat. A cavalcade of accessories adds stylish splashes to growing wardrobes with vibrant bibs (regularly $5+), hats (regularly $7), and sets of socks (regularly $22+).
Since 1961, Bamboo Reef has been unlocking the depths of the ocean by training scuba adventurers, outfitting them with gear and repairing equipment on the fritz. Skilled instructors guide swimmers during diving classes that range from paddling in an 82-degree pool to advanced night navigation in the Pacific's dunk tank. Refresher and specialty courses continue students’ aquatic education after they’ve mastered the basics of gliding through the deep blue. Bamboo Reef also coordinates dives off the shores of Monterey, Carmel, and international coasts that count toward specialty, advanced, and master diver ratings as well as black belts in underwater kickboxing.
The water wizards also rent and sell gear from brands such as Aqua Lung and Mares. Professional technicians—who maintain more than $10,000 in parts inventory—stand at the ready to repair all major brands of scuba equipment.
The affable and capable instructors at Baubles and Beads expertly guide students along the path of successful stringmanship in three-hour classes. Students in the Basic Stringing class acquire the introductory skills of bead stringing, learning material selection, design basics, and finishing techniques, and leaving the course with a newly-fashioned bracelet and a firmer understanding of string theory. The Basic Wire Work class imparts the fundamentals of wire wielding with lessons in loop-making techniques such as earring construction, simple loops, and wire-wrapped loops. All necessary materials, including beads, wires, strings, and ornament-ready floss, are included in both classes.
Kool Kids Boutique was just a twinkle in Pamela Randall’s eye when she founded her own clothing line, P & T Designs, in 2001, but her store now serves as home to her own line and to a voluminous selection of custom-designed children’s merchandise. Formal and casual duds for little ones bear brands including Le Top, Biscotti, and Nicole Miller. Toys and accessories, ranging from hand-sewn stuffed animals to colorful lunch boxes, dot the aisles alongside hand-painted rocking chairs and bedding for babies, toddlers, and sleep-deprived storks.
The brand American Apparel, which recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, conjures up images of stylish and well-fitting fashion basics. It also likely brings to mind sassy advertisements featuring long-haired beauties in natural makeup posing in skin-bearing bodysuits and loungewear.
But what many don't know about the brand—despite its name and the slice of apple pie that comes with every purchase—is that all of its clothes are made in America. Everything from sewing and cutting to accounting and marketing happens in one building in downtown Los Angeles, and the rest occurs within a 30-mile radius. Not only that, every slim-fitting pair of pants, spandex bodysuit, and v-neck T-shirt is made in a sweatshop-free environment.
Plus, keeping everything in house means the company eliminates unnecessary and wasteful factors, such as shipping fuel and packing materials, as well as provides jobs to Angelenos, instead of outsourcing them.
