LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
I waited for two things to open a second store: we needed some vintage metal casement windows, and we needed a classic row storefront in a neighborhood worth visiting. Old Pasadena, with its historic buildings and alleys; parks and parking; and rich community culture fits like a bespoke glove.
Score. The 1914 Holly St. Building was rehabbed by the late Jim Plotkin, the unofficial Mayor of Old Town and one of the driving forces behind Old Pasadena's revival in the 1980s. The Holly St. shop is based on the original Melrose design, with higher ceilings and a slightly revised floor plan.
Our quiet block between Fair Oaks and Raymond is stuffed with terrific shops and restaurants such as Lula Mae (voted best gift shop in Pasadena), The Loved One vintage boutique, The Market On Holly (impeccable food, cafeteria style), Classic Kids photography, Mignon Chocolate (Pasadena, Glendale and Tehran), and Therapy designer apparel-- to name just a few.
