Popular items include Turkish throws, tissue box covers and dinner napkins by The Monogrammed Home as well as Govino wine glasses. Of course, their are plenty of pearls – in necklaces, bracelets and earrings. The store is tastefully arranged and each item was lovingly chosen.

“I chose the name ‘Pearls’ because it reminds me of Pasadena. I wanted to fill the store with ladylike things,” she said.

They will be carrying Glassbaby votive holders and drinking glasses until May. These colorful, hand blown glasses were the brainchild of a three time lung cancer survivor and her husband. Glassbaby is currently on a West coast color tour and is donating 10% of profits to local cancer charities along their route.

During the Pearl’s sneak peak, 10% of sales were donated to Cancer Support Community and Wax plans to collaborate with other charities in the future.

Pearls will open to the public on May 2 at 2639 Mission Street, San Marino.
