About

FOLD sells and celebrates the local Los Angeles artist and the local Los Angeles Artisan. You can also find an ever changing selection of vintage and antiques in the shop.

FOLD is no run of the mill gallery. FOLD Gallery is about community. We love that our city is so diverse and full of wonderful creatives that have a strong voice and amazing artwork. Our gallery is dedicated to the Los Angeles artist. All of our artists are home grown right here in LA or have struck deep roots in the city.

FOLD also has an entire section of the shop devoted to “Handmade in LA”. This space honors the Los Angeles artisan. Those single person or small team businesses that pour their heart into their unique, handcrafted work. We carry a wide array of candles, wood crafted items, handbags, pipes, leather goods, soaps & lotions, journals and more.

FOLD is also vintage and antique. We specialize in vintage cameras, books, typewriters, maps, barware, nautical and radios. In our shop, you will find interesting and unique items that are the perfect gift or addition to your home or office. We will even go on the hunt for you if you have a special order!

It’s hypnotizing watching this 8mm camera run. I just love the mechanics of it. #dtla #vintagemoviecamera #mechanics

This year, I had made it my goal to travel 🧳 as much as I possibly could without the shop falling into ruin and my marriage suffering from neglect. I’m happy to report both are in good standing and I have been so very fortunate to see and do so many AMAZING things this last year. This pin by @maidenvoyageco is a lucky traveler pin and the perfect gift for anyone like me who have been bitten by the travel bug and can’t stop movin and groovin! We only have a few left in stock! ✈️ 🚞 🚗

I don’t know about you, but as a kid I coveted pop-up books. I was obsessed with how they worked and enamored with their delicate, engineered structure. I was crushed when they tore or folded incorrectly and always hid them from my brothers who pretty much destroyed everything they touched. So when we got in these pop up cards, I was like a tiny human again, opening each one, watching them unfold, trying to figure out their structures by peeping in the crack and opening them super slowly. #paperfolds #popup

This is what I think of cyber Monday. Small businesses like ours just can’t compete with big box companies and today I’m feeling a little discouraged about it. We will always support fellow small businesses first and give you the best of our local makers and that means we can’t give you the crazy discounts or choose to make our staff work on Thanksgiving so that they can get trampled at the door for big discount, made-somewhere-else BS. We offer quality products made right here in the USA by working artists, designers, moms and pops that probably already have a full-time job but want to do what they love so just pull 100-hour weeks just to make it happen and create something unique and thoughtful. #supportsmallbusiness

Patrick Haemmerlein is back! All new artworks in our gallery. We love his artwork and we also think he is just the bees knees. #laartist #dtla #galleryrow #heART

We are so fortunate to be near JPL and CalTech because we always find the coolest vintage NASA and space memorabilia. I often find declassified NASA manuals on avionics or random photo slides. It’s so amazing and I find such inspiration in these objects! It’s such a vast universe we live in and we’ve just scratched the surface on our exploration of it. In this photo we have vintage patches, a rocket bank, a collectible from the original Sputnik mission, space shuttle pin and cast rockets from artist Scott Nelles. #nasa #sputnik #rocket #vintage #dtla

If you’re a small business owner I think you can agree that sometimes you just have one of those days. Everything seems to go wrong where you just want to dig a little hole and go lay down and hide in it. Today was one of those days for me. And then.... our @chris_thomas_pottery order came in the mail and this little guy got unwrapped and his little side smile attacked my sad heart with his cuteness and I honestly feel a bit better. It’s amazing that such a little, handmade cutie could affect me so and I’m just over the moon that we get to have these in our shop where they will potentially make a whole bunch of peoples day better just by being here. Thank-you so much Chris, you made my day. 💕🤸🏼‍♀️💯 #handmade #feels #pottery #dtla #baddaymadebetter

Swipe ➡️ Vintage cameras 📸 are a borderline obsession with me. I search for them endlessly. They need to be perfect or very near. When you purchase a camera from us, you can be assured that it’s been thoroughly cleaned and tested before your paws ever get near it. I take great pride in resurrecting these beauties for your analog delight. Currently we have so many awesome cameras in stock it’s hard even for me to believe. Nikon, Canon, Minolta, Kodak, Pentax, Rolleicord, Leica, Polaroid, Voigtlander, Black body, folding, box!!! The list goes on. 📷 #cameraporn #analog #dtla

We have so many beautiful vintage typewriters in the shop right now. This Art Deco 1930s Remington Remette Portable Typewriter is a favorite of mine. Many well known writers loved using this portable typewriter like Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, George Bernard Shaw & George Orwell. It comes with its own case and is in good working order. 📇
