You Better Shop Around


Farrin O’Connor

Farrin O’Connor

This is the place for jewelry-making supplies – both tools and such raw materials as sterling silver and semiprecious beads and gems. Wannabe jewelry makers can sign up for a class or get expert advice from owner Margo Farrin, a Pasadena treasure. Staples: Everything the novice to expert jewelry maker needs. Don’t Miss: The bead room. You won’t believe [...]

Mission Antiques

Mission Antiques

A great spot to bring the kids, Mission is small enough to keep an eye on them and carries plenty of fun, funky and affordable items that will hold their interest. If the fabulous folk-art felt pumpkin pillow is gone, we’re sorry – we just couldn’t help ourselves. Staples: Homey American furniture, old books and records, light fixtures and a [...]

Distant Lands

Distant Lands

A traveler’s best friend, Distant Lands houses everything from an on-site travel agency to a fabulous library of books and maps. The staff members are all passionate travelers, so you’re likely to get good advice just in conversation, and they’ll point you toward the best books for your destination — or your daydreaming. Check out the regular events [...]

Clothes Heaven

Clothes Heaven

Larayne Brannon says, “We make sure women have fun here – after all, shopping is a recreational sport.” And you will indeed have fun exploring this high-end collection of gently worn goods. The best way to negotiate the crowded store is to follow the signs. “Extra Snazzy,” for instance, marks suits and dresses from such elite designers as Armani, Chanel and Escada. They’re [...]

Camille Frances DePedrini

Camille Frances DePedrini

Known as Camille’s, this boutique carries everything you need for an impeccably detailed outfit: dresses, shoes, shawls, jackets and jewelry. DePedrini is best known for her gorgeous wedding dresses (from the classic to the artsy), mother-of-the-bride dresses and her creations for the fanciest of occasions, including the Oscars. Besides her own designs, her lines include Yoana Baraschi, Marianne Kooimans, Chan Luu and Spirithouse. Staples: [...]

Gold Bug

Gold Bug

It’s safe to say there’s no other store in town all of L.A. like Gold Bug, an always-intriguing, sometimes-macabre collection of art, artifacts, jewelry, decorative objects, clothing and more, all with a natural-history or Victoriana bent. Besides the regular collection, which is fascinating enough, the store also serves as an art gallery with rotating shows [...]

Zinnia

Zinnia

Thanks to Zinnia, we may never have to set foot in the dreaded Michael’s again. This is a craft store with personality, flair and whimsy, staffed by people who are obsessed with this stuff. Owner Tamara says this store looks like the inside of her brain, which is either a thrilling or frightening statement, depending [...]

Motif’s Swan Song

Motif’s Swan Song

We are terribly sad to report that one of Pasadena’s best boutiques, Motif, is closing its doors soon after many successful years, but happy that owner Stephanie Plumb Miller is ready for new adventures. To both thank her regulars and end the era, Stephanie is having a blow-out sale, starting today, August 21st, and running [...]

Il Teatro

Il Teatro

An easily overlooked Old Town boutique next to a cigar store, Il Teatro pleases the price-conscious shopper who want to tap into trends without paying a lot. You’ll find a wide array of jewelry, including (as the name suggests) some theatrical pieces! There’s something for every age here, thanks to the range of accessories and [...]

Maude Woods

Maude Woods

Upscale home furnishings, furniture and unique gifts fill this newish Old Town store, which owner Carrie Davich says has a “westside/Santa Barbara vibe without the westside prices.” Light and airy, full of vibrant colors, it feels like a French country house with all the trimmings. Davich, who used to be a clothing designer, named the [...]
