Patience is a Virtue, So They Say.

It all seemed pretty mundane when I picked up a box of personal memorabilia from my grandparents last weekend, but as it turns out we’ve had quite a week discovering the inner pages of my baby book. I only slightly peeped inside and there it was, pink and blue, “Baby’s Milestones; Birth to Seven Years”. I’ve discovered 1st and 2nd year birthday cards, several years of fearing Christmas on good ‘ole Saint Nicks lap, progress reports from Pre-K, notes my sweet momma left for me some 36 years ago (my birthday was October 8th by-the-way!), and the list goes on. Memories. I have to thank my Mom for keeping this going as long as she did, it’s pretty cool to know that I learned to tie my shoe laces from a Nun showing me one time when I was only 2 1/2 years old. A sign of brilliance, so they say – I’m proud. 


You might be wondering what all this has to do with patience; the answer is nothing. But in that baby book my husband (naturally) found a photo of me probably only four years old looking annoyed beyond be belief, and my mother mentioned in a progress report that she wasn’t sure if I had hearing problems or if I was ignoring her (I think I have hearing problems). It’s hilarious because it goes to show (to me anyway) that my belief regarding all behaviors being learned is wrong, some behaviors really are innate. 


Some people are lucky, they walk around with an ounce of zen and are able to maintain a cheerful state with ease. Others get irritated at the slightest disruption to their plan, and it usually has to do with saving an extra five minutes: a slow car, a long line, the new cashier, and on and on and on. Personally, I teeter the line and lean a little toward the annoyed side; the picture of me four years old sitting on a boat and smirking at the camera says it all. 


It’s with this story that I tell you we are transitioning to a new check out system and we ask for your patience as everyone learns the ins and outs. If the line is long we’ll jump back to the old system to get you out of the house ASAP. But if your second or third in line and it’s taking a wee bit longer than you like, please have a little patience, we promise that eventually this system will move things along at a much faster pace. Also prepare to give us your name and email address (yes, again), and phone number if you’d like text message alerts, we’re going digital with receipts (save a tree!).

Pick-up Time: Saturday 9/19 from 10am – 1pm.

Huge Discounts off Already Low Estate Sale Prices!!

Quirky and kitsch, our Pasadena fire sale is overflowing with one-a-kind pieces full of gently used personal stories, historical interest, and even rare Mid-century modern furniture and rustic Americana for prices that would rival the century they came from.

Need to deck out a hip new pad with stylish pieces that would be priced higher at a vintage store? There’s a lovely Karl Andersson by Borge Mogensen dining set, a spacious Mid-century modern credenza, a teak Mid-century modern trash bin that would sell for $850 in mint condition (click the link to see our insanely low price!) and a complete Asian-inspired Mid-century modern dresser, mirror, and nightstand set.

Warm up all those teaks and walnuts with a trio of sturdy vintage Navajo rugs in the lushest mustards, saffrons, and creams; perfect for an Indian summer and the rustling days of Southern California autumns.

If vintage costuming is your trade (or obsession), there’s also huge lots of antique clothing including bejeweled and hand-beaded vintage purses, authentic World War II uniform pieces, an old San Gabriel Valley Boy Scouts uniform, a delicate lace wedding blouse boasting a ‘30s style silhouette and a giant lot of vintage baby clothes and hand-crocheted items.

Don’t miss out on this sale that has a little bit for everyone—or exactly everything for someone who wants to decorate one dynamic space on a dime.
