A lot of people know The Stockroom mainly for the stuff that we sell online. That’s not unfair; since one of our biggest claims to fame is that when Joel Tucker started the company in 1988, he broke new ground by taking his business online. The Stockroom was the first sex toy company on the Internet, and 28 years later, we’re still here.
But we do a lot of great stuff in the real world, too, and if you’re in the Los Angeles Area, this weekend is a great opportunity to come and see us doing our best work in the latex-and-leather-clad-flesh. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re having our first rummage sale of 2016 today and tomorrow.
Our rummage sales have become legendary among Los Angeles kinksters. When most people have a rummage sale, they bring out obsolete stereo and video equipment, old board games, and that ugly piece of china that some distant relative gave as a present three or four holidays ago. When we do it, it’s a prime opportunity to find some of the sexiest, most imaginative toys and BDSM gear around for amazing prices.
If you love latex and leather, this is the perfect time for you to come out and look at clothes from Syren and Stormy Leather that are in perfect shape and sexy as hell, but for some reason just didn’t find a home before now. And on these two days, the deals on that stuff and various toys and accessories will be so good that you’ll feel like you’re stealing them away.
There’s something for every kink, fetish, and sensual desire, so you’re sure to find something that will make this Valentine’s Day memorable.
So come down to the store between 11 AM and 7PM anytime this weekend. If you’ve never met our staff in person before, this is the perfect chance to introduce yourself.
[Note: We’ve been informed that the 101 and our nearby freeways may have closures due to construction over the weekend. Please check the traffic reports and use alternate routes.]
When: Saturday, February 6 and Sunday, February 7.
11 AM – 7 PM both days.
Where: Stockroom Hall: 2809 1/2 W. Sunset Blvd. Located next to our retail store.
Happy post-Thanksgiving day to everyone. We hope that you spent the holiday safe, warm, and well-fed with your families (biological, leather, or otherwise), and that today the tryptophan coma has worn off into a pleasant, satisfied afterglow.
Most of us at The Stockroom had great times with our loved ones, but there’s no time to bask in that afterglow; the passing of Thanksgiving means that we’re now entering the final stages of our Black/Cyber Sale, which ends on Tuesday, December 1. If you haven’t used the last few days to take advantage of the 25-75% discounts on some of the kinkiest equipment in our inventory, this is the time to do it. (On the other hand, if you have been taking advantage of us, don’t feel like you have to stop.)

This week is a great one for fans of animal roleplay.
First of all, you may have noticed our Dog and Pony Sale going on right now. If you’re into any kind of animal roleplay, or have just been thinking about it, you should definitely browse through the sale page. The goods that are on sale represent some of our most creative items, going far beyond the selection of whips and chains that you find in your typical dungeon. A few examples:
- Pony Head Bridle Set: What pony wouldn’t be proud to be led around the corral in this beautiful bridle and harness set? Choose from black, white, or red leather, or black PVC. For those special occasions, you can order the black PVC set with a beautiful plume on top.
- Silicone Puppy Tail: Perhaps the most adorable butt plug you’re ever going to see. Combining anal stimulation with the fun of being a puppy, you can let your puppy waggle their tail for you, or you can take it in hand and give them a little extra pleasure by wiggling it around yourself.
- Leather Bunny Hood: Bunnies — underneath that adorable fluffiness, we know they’re full of wickedness and mischief. Bring that combination into your dungeon with this high-quality leather hood that’s perfect for sensory deprivation play; the eyes are leather patches with nine small holes that allow minimal vision, making sure that your bunny will have to follow wherever you lead.
- Molded Latex Pony Boots: Just what the well-dressed pony needs for a ride around the corral.
To tell the truth, we’re really enjoying this sale because it gives us a chance to show off the playful inventiveness that represents kink at its very best.
But those who are here in Los Angeles will have yet another chance to indulge their interest in animal roleplay. Tomorrow, the Antebellum Gallery in Hollywood is going to kick off their own Dog & Pony Show. Artists like Michael Manning, Dorian Katz, Victor Lightworship, and Rick Castro will be showing their own visions of dog and pony play fetishes through photography, painting, sculptures, and other mediums.
Featured in the main window of the gallery will be a installation created on-location by Midori, one of Stockroom’s favorite educators. She visited us just last weekend to present two workshops at Stockroom University, and if you’ve been watching her Twitter and Instagram feeds, you’ve already gotten a few glimpses of her work in progress. She’s using flowers on a wire frame to create a statue of Anubis, the jackal-headed god of the dead in Egyptian mythology, and it just gets more impressive the closer to completion it gets. The shots below will give you an idea of where it’s going, including a view of Anubis’s heart and digestive tract.
Our Dog and Pony Sale goes until Friday, August 7. The Antebellum Gallery will be kicking off their show with a reception from 7-9PM on Saturday, August 1. (Adults only, Fetish gear encouraged but not required.)
Part sexy sample sale, part pervert’s clearing house, The Stockroom Rummage Sale is justifiably legendary as the best place for LA-area kinksters to get amazing deals on gear, toys, fetish wear, books, and DVDs!
Think of it as a little bit like an estate sale run by the Marquis de Sade – with bargains of up to 90% off original retail price on vintage leather clothing, one-off styles of latex garments, novel sex toys, and bondage equipment that has been discontinued, overstocked, or with small irregularities that affect the appearance, but not the functionality of the item.
If you’re in LA this weekend and want to score some great gear at a great price, or just drop by to say hi and kibbitz with other kinky locals, check out the details and come on down!
Where: Next door to our Retail Boutique in Silver Lake – 2809 1/2 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
When: Saturday and Sunday, April 12th and 13th, 2014 – 11am to 6pm
Who: For you! Bring your friends! Bring your enemies! Bring everyone! Spread the word!
(PSSSST – We’re having a contest for a special Stockroom experience which includes an exclusive Friday night preview of the Rummage Sale, with an opportunity to get first dibs on the best of the selection. Enter here!)
What is National Kink Month?
October 2013 is the second annual National Kink Month: A 31 day celebration of kinky sex, fetishes, and those who have them! Last year’s Kink Month was a huge hit, and we want to make sure that we top it this year! To that end, we’ve expanded from the previous precision-focus on BDSM and bondage to reach out and welcome all kinky people into The Stockroom’s warm embraces!
Let’s face it, kinky people have to deal with a lot of sideways stares whenever their sexual predilections are made visible. We spend so much of our lives living either in fear of discovery, or within a close-knit group of like-minded people to avoid discomfort, work and social repercussions, or even family estrangement. Even if the results aren’t as obviously dire as losing your livelihood or loved ones, it can be heartbreaking to feel like the butt of someone else’s jokes for an unusual attraction.
So we’ve created a celebration of all kinks and kinky culture. Our aim is to provide you with the best information possible on a wide range of fetishes and -philias, to make you knowledgeable and stimulate your *ahem* mind.
Most importantly, we want to have some fun! We’ve created a series of exciting kinky daily specials, featured items of the week, and a social media smorgasboard of titillating and enlightening pictures, posts and special offers to keep celebrating kink month all month long!
BBQs and picnics are lots of fun, but the best way to spend your long weekend is in the bedroom! Reward yourself for all your hard work and take advantage of our Labor Day Sale through Sept 3rd!
