Lovely to Be Here
We are happily ensconced in our new space on Main Street in Venice. Half a mile is not much, but we feel a world of difference in our new location. More light, soaring ceiling height, and an incredibly warm welcome have made our transition a great one. I hope you will come and visit us.
One of my favorite things in the new space has got to be the antique games table that I had been long coveting. Backgammon, anyone? Simon, one of our new neighbors, stops by weekly to see if anyone has time for a match.
I am excited about the incredible Dracaena Arborea tree in the front window. It has long been one of my favorite trees, as it has a certain exotic and almost Dr. Seuss-like feeling. It is so happy in its sunny spot, that it sprouted a new frond within the first few weeks of living here!
We have a cheeky monkey, if you can spot him!
We are so happy that we bought these beautiful 19th century antique French carriage house sconces from our friend Ray before he moved into his amazing new building in Culver City. We could not have hoped for a better provenance, as the spirit of Obsolete is here with us every day.
In addition, we have had so much fun collaborating with our friends ZenBunni and our neighbors, Pamela Barish and Mona Moore, on delicious private label chocolates. Our flavor is the exotic Kathmandu, a heavenly Nepali Chai treat. Zen and Bunni take so much care with their confections. They are organic and biodynamic, and simply amazing. Come have a taste! Boxes of the three flavors are available for sale in store.
As an accompaniment to the beautiful silk and French lace lingerie collection, we are proud to introduce the Swiss cotton and LFrank bridal collection of lingerie, Love Honor + Respect. This collection is perfect for everyone who prefers the lighter weight of cotton for these hot summer months. Trimmed with French lace, these pieces are every bit as luxurious and gorgeous as their silk counterparts.
Come have a look and enjoy!
