Written by

Here are three things DnA recommends you check out this weekend.

Muji envelope1 . Muji Pop-up Shop

Muji fans — you no longer need to leave LA to get your fix. As a teaser for their permanent store that is set to open on December 14, this weekend Muji is opening a pop-up store on Hollywood Boulevard, near Graumann’s Chinese Theater.  Muji Hollywood will be the 8th Muji store in the U.S. and its largest, at  8,600 square feet.

Mercury free and no after taste that some products have. Viagra buy? This website provides highest quality generic medicines, which are shipped directly from India.

Why did Muji, sometimes referred to as the “Japanese Ikea,” known for its exquisitely modest clothing, stationery and toys in shades of beige, black, white and gray, pick Hollywood to put down its LA anchor? Find out on an upcoming DnA.
