The Canyon Country Store, as in Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills!

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices 01238708


The Canyon Country Store as in Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles, CA.

One of the historic landmarks of Los Angeles, CA is the “Canyon Country Store” the owner has been there as long as the store has been there and we are talking the 1960’s. Laurel Canyon was the campground for the “Hippy Movement” Now with that said, times have changed, many of the famous Rock & Folk Musician either passed away or moved away. Never the less the store remained and continues to be a magnet for the entertainment industry as well as future “stars”.

The barista knows everyone by their first name, which is impressive by itself. She recognizes the ones that seldom stop in like me, but knows, that I am one of those intermittent visitors and always get a latte. We have a nice chat and off I go meet my clients. Today was no different, well not quite.

As I went in the parking lot I had to take a picture. I had to smile and laugh and scratch my head at the same time. For those who do not remember That was a campaign Sticker from 1972 and you know when the first Prius was made😊.

Clearly Laurel Canyon has not changed too much there is still an eclectic or should I say eccentricity to it.

Good morning Endre.  I wonder how many miles that vehicle has on it?  Got to be up there wouldn't you think?

Good morning Endre.  Now that's a real oxymoron, a Nixon sticker on a Prius.

Endre Barath, Jr. - I admire the person who can take a look back in history and find something interesting to share. You're very resourceful and funny too! But when it comes to business, you really are top notch and the best at what you do.

Good morning Endre. This place is very appealing. I have a country store in my town but I live in the country. How neat.

Hi Endre --- As far as the photograph...nice capture and while I try to steer clear of political talk here....there is talk about some recent tapings....just sayin'.

Hi Endre - Laurel Canyon was one canyon over from where I lived in '66 - '68, and I remember the store - as well as the hippies, since I could have been described that way based on hair length, politics and a couple of other, best-left-unmentioned behaviors. Nice to see that it's still around.

Love the sticker but on a Prius??? I guess this person is feeling nostalgic about Nixon now that we have something quite worse it the WH!

Endre the “Canyon Country Store” sounds like a special place with its own special character.

Thanks for sharing this important piece of local lore. I remember the hippy movement and was a modified hippy.

Back when I was a hippie, and maybe I haven't grown out of that era, I stayed for a while in Laurel Canyon. It was the first place I stopped in California. Hey, it beat the Valley, LOL.

Hi Endre, 

What a great local feature to highlight Laurel Canyon. There has always been a certain mystique about Laurel Canyon and I think your post captures some of that!

Well it doesn't look like much of a store but it must cover a lot of bases if they are still in business.  It actually looks like something you'd see around my neck of the woods.
