Remember when you wanted to go there to get a Kabbalah red string bracelet and a Mrs. Kutcher T-shirt?

If you flipped through an Us Weekly or read a celeb gossip blog in the 2000s, then you probably remember the oh-so-trendy shop and celeb hangout spot called Kitson.

The store was located on L.A.'s Robertson Blvd. across from another favorite celeb hangout, The Ivy.

The store was located on L.A.'s Robertson Blvd. across from another favorite celeb hangout, The Ivy.

1. First and foremost the store is probably most synonymous with Paris Hilton, who practically lived there.

Maybe she owned stock in it? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

2. She'd even bring everyone's favorite Hilton, Tinker Bell, with her on shopping sprees.

3. And of course, Kitson also sold lots of Paris related stuff, like her book Confessions of An Heiress.

Sadly (maybe?), Kitson went the way of Juicy Couture track suits and Von Dutch trucker hats, and closed its doors earlier this year after 15 years of business.

The end of an era. At least we'll always have the thousands of photos of Paris shopping there!
