Shopping In Agoura Hills, CA

Owner: Maria Bartolet

Q: When did you open your store? 
M.B: I’ve owned it for 20 years, and was a dealer there 5 years before that. The store itself has probably existed for 35 to 40 years, but we have expanded it a lot; it’s like night and day.

Q: What do you love about owning the shop? 
M.B: I absolutely love coming to work everyday because it’s just an incredibly fun place to work! I love the customers, love the fact that we can come in here and work with all these unique antique pieces. We move things around constantly; it’s so fun to be surrounded by all this great stuff and be able to change vignettes so often.

Q: What do you find to be the most challenging aspect of the business? 
M.B: There isn’t really any challenge! It’s just making sure that we have the merchandise that people are looking for, but I don’t consider it a challenge.

Q: Do you have any favorite pieces in the store right now? 
M.B: There are so many favorites! I’m really into industrial right now, and we have these fabulous 9.5 foot doors that came off of an old firehouse that I love.

Q: What is your favorite time of year around the shop?
M.B: I think our holidays are really special here because we start decorating in November. I think customers really look forward to our holiday displays; we have a huge open house, and it’s always the Saturday before Thanksgiving. It just sort of kicks it off, it’s a big event and people love it. The whole store kind of just transforms itself into this magical look.
