Lobal Orning was a record and book store located in the mountains north of the Pacific Coast Highway in the small community of Topanga, California, United States.[1][2]

It sold a "unique selection,.[3] of music and books — a mix of everything from classic literature to pulp",.[4] The store was also described as "one of Topanga’s unfortunately best-kept secrets".[4] The store was run by rock musician Justin Chancellor of the band Tool, and his wife Shelee Dykman,[5] 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.[5] The store closed March 1, 2008.
