L.A. Tigers Store

L.A. Tigers was in business at the corner of Venice and LaBrea in Los Angeles for only a short while.  The building is still there baring it’s sign.  Only serving the public’s stuffed animal tiger needs, it’s obscure location among auto parts stores, storage facilities, and manufacturing buildings was what one neighboring business mate said led to its demise.

When it was open, I loved seeing the various types of tigers and a lion laid out on tables like an outdoor sidewalk sale.

Currently, on some days and nights, the man who is behind the L.A. Tigers franchise, has his tigers and a lion out for sale at the Shell Station on Melrose Ave, in Hollywood.

More on tigers later…
