Bigger isn't necessarily better, as Echo Park's newest shopping addition shows. Hecho en Echo Gallery took over a 215-square-foot neighborhood shop last week, bringing a mix of luxe and local labels to a low-key corner on Echo Park Avenue.

"The previous owner, a beautifully free-spirited and inspiring woman, had a lot of stuff in the store and on the sidewalk," says shopkeep Sarah VanderLaan. "You couldn't miss it if you were walking through the neighborhood."

VanderLaan — a Midwest transplant who previously worked in the corporate fashion world at Forever 21 and Juicy Couture — gave the tiny space a major makeover, adding custom fixtures, new lighting, and a turn table. Originally slated to open as a vintage and consignment shop, the boutique offers a mostly LA-based roster of artists, designers, and vendors.

Expect to shop minimalist-cool clothing by Objects Without Meaning, edgy basics by Echo and Air, vintage-inspired womenswear by Lykke Wullf, celeb-faved hats by Gladys Tamez Millinery, handmade crystal candles by Isabel Theselius, and accessories from international designers curated by Ryze Showroom, to name a few.

Hecho en Echo Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 6pm and by appointment.
