Ampersand mixes retro and unique
Ampersand, opened by mother-daughter team Marlyse Henderson and Taylor Urban in March 2012, sits between a liquor store and a gas station on Sunset Drive across from a supermarket. With two very different tastes and styles, the store has become a little all-natural ‘70s bohemian mixed with modern, vibrant eclectic cheer. In addition to women’s apparel, candles and fashion jewelry, Ampersand has home decor, baby gifts, market coffees, organic gourmet salts and pure cane sugars.

WHAT YOU’LL FIND: Best-sellers such as Capri Blue Volcano candles and Free People tops can be found throughout this eclectic store. Other brands include Natural Life, Voluspa and Niven Morgan, plus interesting and unique items that other stores don’t carry.
WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: “Most people don’t know that (ampersand) was originally the 27th letter to the alphabet. But to us, it just means that we carry this & this & that!” --Marlyse Henderson, co-owner
