Clothes Heaven

Clothes Heaven

We thank our friend Peggy Sue Davis as she was the impetus behind our featuring of Clothes Heaven this week, a 30-year-old staple of Old Pasadena and the source for timeless high fashion and haute couture. We were heading back to our car after strolling Old Pasadena’s various alleyways, encountering the silly, fun, colorful, thoughtful, intriguing art […]

A Place to Bead

A Place to Bead

Christina Rizzo has been a “bead” enthusiast since she was a teenager and after working in a shop for years, absorbing all she could learn, she had the opportunity to open her own business. A Place to Bead may be found in the 2-block smorgasbord of shops found on Mission Street in San Marino. It sits between a […]

Lloyd & Lane

Lloyd & Lane

Baskets, desks, dressers, and a delicate shabby chic-style chair with a needlepoint seat. Lamps, footstools, and a green umbrella stand. Iron sconces, a wood birdcage, and a wall candelabra. These are some of the new and vintage items at the Lloyd & Lane Found Objects in South Pasadena, right across from the still (sigh) un-restored Rialto Theater. […]

Ojai Marvels

Ojai Marvels

The lull after Christmas and before the new year was a perfect time to take a jaunt to Ojai. Though we were experiencing almost continuous rain, we managed to snag a few hours between downpours. We arrived in Ojai with an appetite and chose a very cute spot called Knead Baking Company. We partook of a sandwich no bigger than […]

Pasadena Antique Mall

Pasadena Antique Mall

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. One, because it’s imperative to be well fed (without overindulging and wanting to crawl back under the covers) and to be caffeine-infused before stepping through the front door. […]

Fleur

Fleur

Fiore Market Café is one of our favorite spots. Located in South Pasadena adjacent to Fremont Theatre, Bill and Ann have put together a warm, inviting spot with the most fresh of everything. Fresh breads for their sandwiches, paninis and baguettes, heirloom tomatoes straight from the Fiore Garden (right next to the patio), daily roasted […]

Happily Wear After

Happily Wear After

A business associate suggested we meet at Lavender and Honey, which suited us as the day was hot and the folks there make a lovely ice latte—and, in our opinion, it’s always a perfect day for toast. The L & H toast consists of toasted walnut bread spread with goat cheese, drizzled with honey, and […]

OSKA Pasadena

OSKA Pasadena

The prices are not for the feint of heart but the quality of materials, manufacturing, and the interesting styles of OSKA cannot be denied. Classic, casual, traditional, and slightly out of the box, OSKA has a treasure trove of goodies to look at, feel, ogle, though if one catches your fancy, make sure you’ve brought […]

De-Cor: A Winter Sale

De-Cor: A Winter Sale

We love stepping into De-Cor, an enchanting profusion of color, smells, shapes, and textures. The 7,500 square foot showroom is lined with shelves of hand made textiles, filled with “re-claimed” furniture that’s been restored and updated, and a handful of display “rooms” that illustrate how their merchandise work together so alluringly. During the first week […]

Groove

Groove

It’s on the boulevard, Eagle Rock Boulevard, which has corners of interest, spots of attraction, but is no Old Pasadena or South Lake Avenue, which can name drop and present a thriving front. But Eagle Rock seems to breathe easier, be casual and intriguing without trying. It’s a place to find hidden treasures and favorite […]
