Look for exciting news about TATABA soon!

In the meantime, while TATABA is on hiatus, I’ve been really busy with my new position as a Board Member for the California Heritage Museum. I am thrilled and honored working with them. As a local, business owner, member of the board of the Main Street Business Improvement Association, and commercial property owner of a building on Main Street, my goal is to revitalize the museum so the community can benefit. If you’re interested in helping, we are always looking for enthusiastic, resourceful people to further this goal.

And, the museum  is hosting its annual FLEA MARKET FUNDRAISER from September 22 to October 21.  The sale takes place at the Museum during regular hours – Wednesday to Sunday, 11 to 4pm.  For those wanting early access to  purchase offerings including art works, furniture, clothing, pottery, dishes, clothing, and much more, Advance Preview Day is Saturday, 9/22, and requires a $25 admission (with $5.00 discount for members, who may also arrive at “early bird” time of 10AM).  Admission is free for all other days of the sale.  Local Santa Monica businesses are encouraged to donate gift certificates, and donations of any kind – treasures from closets, storage spaces, and garages! – are accepted from individuals, and may be dropped off during regular hours.   All proceeds will benefit the Museum, which is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

We’ll be in a beautifully restored historic building, and the space will be a combination gallery and highly-curated vintage store.
