DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - It’s getting so you can’t swing a $250 handcrafted item at Ninth Street and Broadway without hitting another $250 handcrafted item.

New York-based specialty retailer Oak has signed a deal to move into the ground-floor space of the Sparkle Factory, at 908 S. Broadway, across the street from the Ace Hotel, on Feb. 1. Landlord Alfonso Campos, the husband and business partner of Sparkle Factory head and jewelry designer Tarina Tarantino, described the store as offering “edgy avant garde brands for men and women.” Merchandise on the Oak website is on the high end, with items including $82 T-shirts, $200 platform shoes, $265 sweaters and $300 leather backpacks. It is not the only new upscale addition coming to the street: Portland-based leather purveyor Tanner Goods will soon move into a ground-floor space at 860 S. Broadway (formerly occupied by Downtown News photographer Gary Leonard’s gallery). The company bills itself as a group of designers, craftspeople and skilled laborers who “strive to create modern products that respect the past.” The store specializes in belts, bags and wallets, with prices ranging from $80 for a luggage tag to $250 for a portfolio. Coming to the northeast corner of Ninth Street and Broadway in about a month is a permanent space for Aesop, a high-end beauty and skin care store. Aesop had been in a temporary pop-up space.
