The most important tenet to remember before heading into the Pasadena Antique Mall at Paseo Colorado is that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Appraising “Treasures”

Remember the old bellows someone bizarrely thought to make into a coffee table that’s been filling space in the TV room? What about that silver watch inherited from Grandma, which looks delicate but hasn’t worked in eons? Are those diamonds? Is it costume jewelry?

Behind the huge Salvation Army Thrift Store lies this smaller cottage where the better goods go. That’s not to say this is fancy stuff—it’s still a funky thrift shop, with the expected racks of old clothing and household tchotchkes. But this is where the better furniture goes, and savvy shoppers stop in weekly for a […]

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 […]

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 […]
