When Elise went to Bali a couple of months ago, we were jealous. And when she came back bearing hand-painted coin purses as a return-travel gift (thanks, E!), I knew that I had to get my hands on some more indigenous Balinese goods. Enter Agabhumi, a brick & mortar on Santa Monica’s boutique-heavy Main Street that stocks crazy-good fringed bags and intricate jewelry. Everything here is hand-crafted in Bali, sourced, packed, and shipped by owners Regina and Michael in order to pass on the savings, so though it all looks exceedingly precious, their prices are really good (and way cheaper than getting on a flight).
