For ten years, Merry's has been SoCal's very own sweatshop-free multicultural bazaar: from the life-sized rusty camel outside to the lush, 12-foot-tall boho-Bedouin dressing tents in the back, we're overflowing with men's and women's "fashion with passion", bohemian accessories, and exotic treasures-- all from faraway lands including Morocco, India, Egypt, Nepal, and beyond! From the flowing, haute-hippie chic of our Laise Adzer-inspired Moroccan cotton collection to authentic tribal jewelry handmade by the nomads of Afghanistan, from funky festival fashions from Nepal to basalt statuary from Egypt, from Indian hippie tapestries to belly dance basics, we've got a world of harem pants, kaftans, kurtas, gypsy skirts, tunics, men's ethnic shirts, and so much more, all at prices you don't need to be a sultan to afford. It's the merriest casbah in California!
