On my “best of” list for 2010 is the discovery of baby pygmy hippos.

I am adding this store to my list of places to go when I’m in LA (which will hopefully be in a few months WHAT).

I took a trip to Pygmy Hippo before I even found this website & I’ve been raving about it to my friends! Let me tell you I fell in love with this shoppe! The owner is amazing & the trinkets she carries are so unique! I wanted to buy everything she had! I had a very limited budget, but Emi had so many wonderful gift options in every price range! I hope I can one day open a beautiful, unique shoppe like Emi has! Pygmy Hippo & Emi have inspired me!
