Art + Collectibles + Books (and Some Real Odds and Ends) Sale

Published on Nov 11, 2022

James Haddad, founder of the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden in Pasadena, will be selling things he had collected, restored, arranged, moved and stored for decades, during an Art + Collectibles + Books Sale – and some real odds and ends – on Sunday, Nov. 13 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

He’s been collecting these interesting things ever since he had an art business in his heyday. Having recently celebrated his 95th birthday, he now wants to offer up what has caught his eye year after year.

Much in the collection is valuable – such as the art – and some things harken back to an earlier time, like LPs, historical magazines, poetry books and technology he probably should have thrown away but somehow, magically, always finds that rare soul who is excited to find it.

This is an unusual sale of the weird and wonderful – and a number of real treasures. You can help Jim Haddad empty his gallery and storeroom. Then he can start collecting again.

Admission into the Garden is $12 to $15. The admission price will be deducted from sales over $50.

There are two sessions, with the first from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the second at 1 to 4 p.m. You can stay as long as you like. Just let them know when you will arrive.

For more information, call (626) 399-1721 or visit

The Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden is at 270 Arlington Drive in Pasadena.
