Silver Lake's oddball emporium Coco's Variety Store is a not so general neighborhood market that's actually a bike shop.

Buy, sell, and repair your new and used wheels and maybe pick up an early edition Little Golden while you're there. Friendly folks, free stickers, reverse osmosis water, Mexican medicines, bike parts/baskets/bags, vintage tools and toolboxes, occasionally pizza, Japanese figural pencil erasers, toys, cast iron frying pans and a thoughtfully curated used book selection await your arrival.
