Brooke Rodd shops on Ocean Park Blvd in Santa Monica
Fun by Brooke Rodd
If you need to find the perfect gift for your friend who has everything (or thought she did anyway) then Fun by Brooke Rodd is the place to go.  Brooke has been honing her effortless style since she was a young girl scouring the Chelsea flea markets for good deals and hip hidden treasures, not necessarily in that order. A native New Yorker, Brooke spent her youth in downtown Manhattan and the fashionable enclaves of the East End of Long Island. These days, she shares her keen eye for style and affordability with her customers on a daily basis. Her aesthetic lies at the intersection of lazy August days in the Hamptons, crisp autumn evenings in Central Park, and the BoHo block party vibe of Venice, California, where she currently resides. The Brooke Rodd style embodies them all and leaves you with plenty of super cool options to choose from. You are guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face!  1740 Ocean Park Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405  |  310-664-1991
