Best Well-Edited Boutique Kids' Section - 2011
In a charming single-story building with Streamline Moderne touches on Silver Lake Boulevard next to LA Mill, Yolk manages to stock an impeccably edited yet relatively comprehensive assortment of clothes, toys, gear, books, and tools for kids, mostly with a chic eco-bent and an emphasis on Scandinavian design. Peruse books, women's clothing and housewares up front, then make your way to the back of the sunny store if you're in search of anything from wooden play food, Danish melamine containers, kids' books, Plan Toys, indie kids' threads from local designers such as Peas and Queues, plus plenty of European clothing imports. Or get a Bugaboo stroller and other gear on special order. For new parents who need to register for baby goods from A to Z, Yolk isn't your best bet. But you can be sure that everything is chosen with a keen eye, and your choices won't be limited to pink and blue. 1626 Silver Lake Blvd., Silver Lake; (323) 660-4315, shopyolk.com.
