“We wanted to create a place of permanence that allowed for a slower life and …

a place we could showcase artisans, craftsmen and designers we have met through the years of event planning,” says Paige Appel, co-founder of the new Midland boutique and one half of the creative duo behind styling and event-production team Bash, Please. Housed in Culver City, the shop stocks everything from vintage Navajo turquoise to imported African baskets and clothing from up-and-coming and established brands alike. “Come in and hang out,” encourages co-founder Kelly Harris, “and maybe leave with a vintage Carly Simon record or some cool sunglasses.” 8634 Washington Blvd., C.C.; shop-midland.com.
