DCA - Los Feliz Five & Dime
« on: October 14, 2018, 03:22 PM »
Los Feliz Five & Dime



The Los Feliz Five & Dime is a large shop featuring a variety of Disney merchandise.



Walt and Roy Disney once lived and worked in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, thus the tie-in to the shop's name.



Decorating the exterior are signs with clever references to Walt's past.



This is a reference to the Holly Vermont Realty Company with whom the Disneys shared an office with in the Kingswell Building.



A clever play on words, this sign refers to Ub Iwerks, who worked with Walt in the very early days and was responsible for designing Mickey Mouse.



Nothing clever about this sign. It's just the name of the street.:P



Los Feliz is themed as a vintage five and dime store.



Vintage displays can be seen all throughout the store, typical of what you'd find in a dime store circa 1920.



























The shop carries a large assortment of Disney-themed merchandise.



A large section of the shop is devoted to hats and caps, and offers custom embroidery.






Embroidery machines.









Also on hand are mugs,



key chains,



trading pins,



and pet supplies. Don't you want to dress up your dog like Minnie Mouse?

Very nice, I love to see those detailed photos from you.

One funny thing I would like to add:
Eyeworks is also a Dutch movie production company which is (I thought) sold to WB a few years ago.
That way this sign makes me giggle, cause it's the name of the competitor :P

Thank you. I wasn't sure if people wanted such detailed shots of shops and such, but as long as you guys enjoy them, I'll keep them coming.

I didn't know that. Disney just might have to change that. ;)

Ooh! I really like the Art Deco 'Hollymont' font on that sign. I'm sort of a font freak. I'll have to try making that font, or find it already made. ;)

You're not Brick from "The Middle", are you?

Afraid not. That little geeky kid was born half a century later than me. But I think I'll take it as a compliment. :D
