The Huron Substation is a trolley power station located just above downtown Los Angeles and a federal historic monument (built in 1906). The building has hosted numerous feature films shoots, commercials, photo shoots, and is just beginning to host intimate weddings again. Passionate about historical preservation and the local artistic community, the Huron SubStation has begun to curate events such as Station Market, The Hunger (comedy), and Literary Dinners in order to bring a sense of community in the area and find opportunities to open the space to the public.
Featuring a Curated Selection of Luxury Home Goods & Apparel
Station Market is a pop-up boutique hosted at the historic Huron Substation in Los Angeles. This two day shopping experience is an open-to-the-public, free-to-attend shopping boutique featuring high quality luxury and designer brands and locally made goods.
The Station Market shopping experience will be presented as a series of vignettes within a unique historical environment. Each vignette will incorporate elements of home decor (rugs, furniture, textiles, large scale paintings, fiber art, ceramics, candles, fine art books, etc.) in addition to unique products such as jewelry, apparel and niche fragrance products.
Not normally open to the public, the Huron SubStation, an historic trolley substation (built in 1906) is host to many feature films, commercials and catalog shoots. Most recently, Amy Poehler, in her directorial debut, filmed scenes of Netflix’s “Wine Country” onsite. Listed as Historic Cultural Monument #404 by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission as the Los Angeles Railway Huron Substation, the building was built in 1906 from a design by engineer Edward S. Cobb. It is the second oldest surviving substation in the city which housed equipment to convert high-voltage electricity supplied by the Edison Company to the 600 volts current used by the L.A. Railways “Yellow Cars,” providing urban transportation for many years.
Of special note, the market will also include 3 large scale paintings from the recent show The Lost Art of Lance Gravett (see press kit link below) and the courtyard will “hold court” to a vintage red Cadillac convertible filled with books for sale – A.G. Geiger books version of a bookmobile.
