Shop 1021 | The Lifestyle

Life is full of distractions that fit in the palm of your hand, but really living is everything else. At Shop 1021, we believe that the life lived authentically is more important than the life portrayed on-screen, that Facebook is a highlight reel, that a text is no substitute for a 'thank you' card, that time is a gift in its own right, and that small gestures make a big difference. We believe that it is more important to be present than to be perfect. And we are here to help you get there...to help you live a Shop Life.

Shop 1021 | The Inspiration

The first apartment that was really yours, that you felt proud to show off, that expressed your unique style. The moment when you grew past expectations and constraints and encountered your true self. The period of time when the internet was a thing, but not the thing; when you threw parties - great parties - for the experience, not for the pictures; when a phone was just a phone; and when the holidays were more than an exchange of gift cards.

It doesn't have to feel like a lost civilization. We're here to help you live in the moment, to help you live a Shop Life.

Their first apartment.
The one with the most charm.
Where you threw your best parties.
When you came into your own.
Mine was in West Hollywood. In 2001.
1021 Sweetzer Avenue.
The inspiration for Shop 1021.
