How it Works

Our Location

Where are you located?

We are conveniently located off the 10 freeway in the iconic Los Angeles Arts District at 1210 Mateo St, Los Angeles, CA 90021. Click here for directions. Please enter via the alley behind the building.

Are you open all the time?

We only open to the public when drops occur. We are not open during regular business hours.

Do you sell online?

We do not currently sell online or offer virtual shopping. However we do offer local and long-distance delivery options for items purchased in-person. Learn more here.

Shopping the Drop

What is a Drop?

We drop unique releases of imported & curated inventory on a first come, first served basis. Drops take place in-person at our Los Angeles based Atelier. Our drops are announced to our community via Instagram, email, and text message, and our website. We only open to the public when drops occur. Our next drop date can be found here.

How does the line work?

Customers line up as early as 3 hours before each drop. The line forms in our secure lot accessible via the alley behind our building at 1210 Mateo St. If it rains, the line will form inside under cover. Doors open at 10am sharp. If capacity is reached we employ a one-in, one-out system as needed to ensure a manageable shopping experience. No holding the line for others.

Where do I park?

Abundant street parking is available on Mateo Street, 8th Street and surrounding streets. Additional overflow parking is available at Perfect parking lots located at 826 Mateo St and 1250 S Santa Fe Ave.

What are your prices?

We offer fairly priced objects. "Fair (adj): without cheating or trying to achieve unjust advantage." Put simply, we're striving to offer access to one-of-a-kind, special, and 'of age' objects, without the inflated markups. For examples of our price ranges, visit our “Pricing” highlight on Instagram.

How do I reserve items?

Tape, hold tags, and markers are available upon entry. Label any large/heavy items with your name to secure them as your own. Carry any smaller items with you while shopping. There is no need to mark items in your immediate possession.

Do you offer shipping or delivery?

For local deliveries of heavy and large items, a third party delivery professional is available on-site to provide quotes on request. Please connect with any of our team members to be directed to receive a quote.

Nationwide* freight can now also be quoted for orders exceeding $5,000. As always, shopping must take place in-person and all sales are final. Quotes will be provided within 3-5 working days of your purchase. Freight, materials, and handling costs are the customer’s responsibility. *Nationwide freight excludes HI, AK, PR, GU

If you have any questions please email us losangeles@oliveateliers.com.

Do you offer returns or exchanges?

We do not offer returns or exchanges at this time. All sales are final and all items are sold as-is. Most of our objects have lived many lives and therefore come with patina, age and wear. Please inspect your items before leaving the Atelier. If you have any questions please email us losangeles@oliveateliers.com.

Do you offer private appointments?

We offer limited private appointments via our Early Access program. Click here to learn more about Early Access.

Additionally, we offer private appointments to approved brand, trade, or wholesale partners. If you are a designer or retailer and would like to apply for our trade program please click here or email trade@oliveateliers.com. If you are interested in partnerships please email losangeles@oliveateliers.com.

What is Early Access?

We release limited appointments before each Drop, creating the opportunity to gain Early Access to Shop the Drop.

Early Access appointments receive complimentary one-on-one design guidance by our talented showroom team. And should you require, we facilitate quotes for local and nationwide delivery, making Early Access a great option for those traveling from out-of-state.

Early Access appointments are limited. Appointments are released via an online booking portal and announced via Email and Instagram. A $500 deposit is required to secure your appointment, and your deposit will be credited towards your final purchase. Appointments are valid for one person and are non-transferable. Cancellations or no-shows will be subject to a cancellation fee.

If you have any questions, please email losangeles@oliveateliers.com.
