Chariots on Fire Opens

The beloved SF boutique relocates to L.A.

chariots on fire!

In the race for retail domination, the little guy often gets lost in the shuffle.

But one Abbot Kinney shop is in it to win it.

A former darling of San Francisco’s indie boutique circuit, Chariots on Fire recently relocated to L.A. when owner Ritz Yagi decided she needed a change of scenery.

With an increased emphasis on housewares and apothecary products, Yagi and her team scour the globe for unique and hard-to-find items like Llane Alexis custom dolls and In Fiore solid perfumes. Also up for grabs: a selection of vintage furniture curated by Yagi’s father, graphic design whiz Tamotsu Yagi.

Then, of course, there’s the store’s main thrill (or rather, frill): new and vintage jewelry like Jacqueline Cullen’s Whitby jet earrings, Marion Vidal’s ceramic necklaces, and Ruth Tomlinson’s gold electroformed rings.

This place is a real prize.
