230 Pasadena Ave., Pasadena
Susanne Hollis specializes in fine antiques from Asia, Europe and South America, in addition to more contemporary pieces from her own collection. From an 18th century Chinese desk from the Qing Dynasty to a 1930's Art Deco table, there's always an interesting piece for the home in here.
Mohawk General Store
26 Smith Alley, Pasadena
Now three locations strong, this general-style store offers generally guy-centric range of clothing and accessories (there are a handful of great picks for women), along with really beautiful home goods. Expect to find Isabel Marant jumpsuits (for her), Engineered Garment pants (for him), along with Want Les Essentials laptop sleeves, Cire Trudon candles, and Fort Standard trivets. The originals are in Silver Lake.
Rose Bowl Flea Market
1001 Rose Bowl Dr., Pasadena
The now classic Rose Bowl Flea attracts visitors from all over the world, so expect to compete with some serious shoppers. There’s a sprawling setup of antiques, housewares, and piles and piles of clothes to rummage through. Haggling is part of the deal. (And wear comfortable shoes.)
