From the Rose Bowl Flea Market to high end antique shops, I can safely brag that Pasadena has it all (and lots of all of it). It can get pricey, too! Pasadena's known for its Craftsman and Arts & Crafts homes, so of course that era is well represented in the shops. But every other era has its dealers here as well. So does every European monarch who ever had furniture named after him. If you like shopping for antiques—or if you just like shopping—Pasadena's a prime spot.
I caught this shot at Antiques on Fair Oaks today, where they gave me a cup of coffee when I walked in the door. Friendly!
