The Alphabet Starts at ‘D’

The Alphabet Starts at ‘D’

That’s her slogan and she’s sticking to it. Jenette Goldstein says that she was forty years old and wearing a bra “that made me look matronly and vulgar at the same time.” Mon dieu, that wasn’t going to do at all. Once she was enlightened to the bliss of wearing a properly-sized bra, Jenette tossed [...]

TLO: Vintage Heaven

TLO: Vintage Heaven

Locals who (understandably) complain that Old Pasadena is just another mall, if an outdoors one, need to get off Colorado Boulevard and explore the side streets—especially Holly Street, where a gaggle of indie merchants are thriving. Our new fave is the Loved One, aka TLO, a vintage boutique that recently set a group of college [...]

Tea’s for the Birds

Tea’s for the Birds

Keep Your Hat On!

When you step through the door at 49 W. Colorado in Old Town, you step into a late 19th-century mise en scène par 1895, the year Goorin Brothers Hats was born in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Art’s a Driving Force at Cactus

Art’s a Driving Force at Cactus

Six and a half years ago, Sandra Mastroianni went down to Puerto Iguazu, Argentina—the land of waterfalls and butterflies—and fell in love. Literally. She met an artisan, fell in love, returned home, quit her job teaching, and opened Cactus Gallery & Gifts in Eagle Rock. Her initial focus was selling her then-husband Abraham’s jewelry, followed by [...]

Altadena Hardware Lives

Altadena Hardware Lives

It may have seemed a horror for locals when their neighborhood hardware store, owned by the same family for three generations, was sold last year. The good news is that the new owners, the Orlandini family, are continuing the legacy. They kept old scales, file drawers and bulk nail bins from the old store that [...]
