You were the sweetest thing that I ever knew
but I don't care for sugar honey if I can't have you

Where can I easily kill a few hours? Surfas of course. I had some time, so I wandered the store. It's September you see, and I need to grab all I can before the birthdays/holidays approach.

I steathily took this picture (I don't believe pictures are allowed there) but for all of you - who have never experienced - the most magical place on earth - I give you...the wall of sprinkles.
Makes you want to cry, doesn't it? I love this place. I could live here. Amongst the sprinkles. Next to the wall of ladles. Between the row of baking boxes. If you ever are in Los Angeles and want to go there, I will take you and be your tour guide. I don't care if I just went yesterday, I am willing to go back.

In any case, everything I bought was of absolute importance. Those straws with pinwheels? Totally a necessity, of course. Don't start with the cocktail monkeys. I have plans, yo.

Every time you post about this place I think 'Oh yeah! I've been meaning to go..." Maybe this time I actually will. Looks amazing.

I feel like I remember having a pinwheel straw. Sweet.

I lived in West LA for years and have never heard of this place. Now I live in San Diego. I need to find a place like this down here. I've been to Surfas once since I read about it on your blog. I wanted to buy everything when I was there. I'll definately be going there again.

I feel like I missed out on it when I was in Culver City a month ago. The guy on the phone gave me crappy directions. Two blocks south of downtown??? Downtown Culver?? Where's that?? Wha???

Whatever. I'd only go if it was in The Valley. Or Hollywood. Kidding of course. I probably won't go since I don't cook!

fainted at the wall of Sprinkles.

I need to visit this store ASAP even though I don't have anything really to buy. But I'm sure I'll find something. Dapotato has been mentioning this place for ages. Will you please be my tour guide?
