Warmly lit like a sleek living room from a swank 1950s pad in the Hollywood Hills, Sunset Bazaar vintage furniture in Echo Park specializes in beautiful woods and 1950s through ’70s furniture crafted from strong, beautiful woods. The place is stuffed with period lamps, chandeliers, art and décor. Original art on the walls includes oils, acrylics and some watercolors, ranging in price from about $50 to usually no higher than $400. The shop includes a downstairs annex that most people don’t know is there, with even more furniture and art. Most items are in excellent condition and sometimes pricey. But if a piece has not sold in a while, give negotiating a try. It’s worked for us. Don’t redo your cave’s look without thoroughly checking out Sunset Bazaar once or twice first, because it gets new arrivals every week and sometimes every few days. 2506 W. Sunset Blvd., Echo Park. (213) 413-4556. —N. Jenssen
