Through Hollywood’s urban jungle roam packs of nightlife-loving cougars, wallet-snatching snakes, and creatures who are just plain batty.
But it takes a sharp eye to glimpse Otherwild Goods & Services, a rad new boutique inconspicuously tucked away on Hollywood Boulevard.
Graphic designers Rachel Berks and Marisa Suárez-Orozco reign over the pocket-size oasis of indie delights (which doubles as their studio) and stock it to the brim with housewares, zines, apothecary concoctions, and more.
Poach all-natural skin care from Roots Rose Radish, unique fragrances (Olo’s Dark Wave), handmade tarot cards, and tinctures like healer Dori Midnight’s protection elixir called Witches, Bitches, and Hos.
Exotic jewelry (Michelle Rodriguez’s crocheted metal harnesses, I Be Design’s lunar-inspired necklaces) and sultry clothing by off-the-beaten-path labels (James Kidd, 69) are sure to tempt your Tarzan.
Otherwild, we think we love you.
Otherwild Goods & Services, 6727 7/8 Hollywood Boulevard, between North McCadden Place and North Las Palmas Avenue, Hollywood (323-546-8437 or otherwild.com).
