Holiday Gift Guide

Daily Updates on Facebook and Instagram


Brat has been a family owned store in Santa Monica since 2000. In the past 18 years, I have gotten to know your kids, seen them grow up, and in some cases meet their kids. This is maybe my favorite part of running my own small store. I am sure you are aware that one-by-one the small independent stores in our community are disappearing fast.

It is hard, almost impossible, to compete with online shopping, and yet, I feel there is still such a need to have a few small stores around. Here is where you get to explore, touch, and try things on. You may come in for one thing and walk away with another. It’s a fun adventure!  And spending in Santa Monica directly supports Santa Monica, local stays local. It’s a great partnership.

We hope that this holiday season you will shop with us. And if you can’t, we hope that you will tell your friends about us. We always try to carry unique and hard to find things that you and your friends and family will love! I will be at the Brat store almost all the days leading up to Christmas and will be honored to personally help you out with your shopping and styling needs.

Here is a sampling of what we have for you! Seeing is believing, so come check us out....
