A brief recommendation.

If you live in Southern California, you should visit a store called “& Etc.” in South Pasadena. It’s one of the most beautiful shops I’ve ever visited, filled with tiny, charming, wonderful things. There is a gift there for anyone you know, and the owner, Yvonne, is an exceptionally pleasant woman with exquisite taste. Besides all that, it isn’t particularly expensive. An amazing place. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons, 1110 Mission Street.
