Introducing a new look for Tender Treasures

If you are looking for a fresh new look, something a bit artsy and feminine then you might want to take a look at our new collection of Luna Luz fashions at Tender Treasures. And yes...that gorgeous model is Crystal, who used to be our customer service representative but has now moved on to a career in film editing. The dresses are just fantastic, and the cottons and lycras are so soft and beautiful. Please let me know what you think!!!

Los Angeles County Museum of Art Friday Night Concert Series

Meet me at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, where my husband will be performing an all too rare Russ Ferrante Trio concert. You can get the details here:

Charity Auction on EBAY

I am trying something new! Thinking of creative ways to raise money for the charities we support at Tender Treasures is a particularly enjoyable task for me. We've done lots of things in the past 25 years to help out our friends. At one point, we asked our Beanie Baby customers to bring a pound of coffee for the local homeless shelter, and they would get a discount on their purchases. We raised 5000 lbs of coffee for the homeless shelter, enough to last for a couple of years!!

Ongoing, we have a special rack called "Claire's Closet" which is cool recycled children's clothes that my daughter Claire finds during her constant thrift store shopping. We sell them and give the money to the Glendale Humane Society, a local no-kill shelter with a heart.

So now..I'm trying something new! I have lots of vintage Angelheart clothing, the special collections that were designed as a higher end offering by Jeanne Englehart when she owned the Flax company. I am putting them up on Ebay for sale, and donating the proceeds to Glendale Humane Society, as well as Union Station Homeless Services. So, for you Angelheart collectors, take a look.
