It sold a "unique selection of music and books — a mix of everything from classic literature to pulp",. The store was also described as "one of Topanga’s unfortunately best-kept secrets". The store was run by rock musician Justin Chancellor of the band Tool, and his wife Shelee Dykman, who coined the phrase "lobal orning" which meant "to decorate the mind". The word "lobal" is a reference to the lobes of the brain and ears. The word "orning" is a reference to the word "ornament", in its verb form. The store closed March 1, 2008.
