Antiques Row: Bearded Lady Vintage

image

This little cottage in Burbank holds big surprises. Bearded Lady Vintage set up shop on the edge of Magnolia’s antiques row about a year ago. It is not your average grandma’s pearls and doll shop. Kiko and Erick, who are friendly and knowledgeable, carefully curate their wares with an eye towards the unusual. They may still carry pearls and dolls, but they are more likely to carry Victorian hair jewelry and creepy Nancy Ann Storybook dolls.

It’s hard to pin this shop down to any one category, but they tend to carry old comic books, slides and slide projectors, unusual medical devices, cool restored furniture, keys, typewriters and a particular type of taxidermy. Twenty years ago I neglected to buy an Edward Gorey pop-up book. I have had my eye out for one ever since. I have combed bookstores, EBay, and countless antique shops. Bearded Lady actually had my holy grail! And in excellent condition, too. This is the place to find lost items and other treasures that you didn’t even realize you were missing.
