Map
1714 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States

Designed to resemble a 1970's 7-Eleven, the store sells dinosaur eggs, robot milk, and "leeches - nature's tiny doctors." It may take a minute, but then the visitor gets it. This is a put-on - an art installation: a convenience store stocked for a road trip through time. But the merchandise sells, and almost as soon as the store opened last spirng, it earned enough to pay rent for the nonprofit walk-in tutoring center for neighborhood kids, called 826LA, that occupies the rest of the building.
