First the food truck revolution brought us restaurants on wheels, mixing up your own neighborhood's restaurant offerings. Now, the next wave is shopping on wheels.
Here are ten repurposed food trucks rolling on the streets of L.A., purveying anything but food.
10. The Flower Truck

In a redone 1970s ice cream truck dubbed "Lola," Jenifer Kaplan has found the sweet spot that's lower rent than a bricks-and-mortar florist shop but higher class that standing by the side of a freeway offramp. Kaplan isn't a trained floral designer, so it's all hand bouquets, but they do make a charming impromptu gift that just feels more romantic than buying your flowers at Vons.
9. The Original Mobile Barbershop

Inside this vintage Airstream trailer, you can get a haircut or even an old-fashioned straight razor shave from master barber "J. Vegas" Payne. Just make sure the trailer isn't in motion. It makes stops in Santa Monica and Malibu, and has crossed the country three times, but can often be found by the Trader Joe's on Riverside Drive in Sherman Oaks.
