The Sunset Strip may draw the crowds west at night, but the eastern end of Sunset -- the part that runs through Silver Lake and Echo Park -- is where the skinny-jeans crowd shops by day, earning the area favorable comparisons to hip Williamsburg area of Brooklyn and the Mission District of San Francisco. Indie-label fashion and vinyl records mix with Midcentury Modern furniture and crafty handmade goods by local artisans. You'll find lots of décor geared to small-space and earth-friendly living. Writer David A. Keeps sequenced his tour as a one-way journey from east to west, starting with a place that embodies the neighborhood's boho mix.
