A Little Hughes History

Credited with helping ignite the re-birth of Old Town Pasadena's antique and art scene, our founder Larry Hughes opened his first storefront named "Riff Raff" on Holly Street in 1978. Specializing in vintage California Pottery and 20th century art and collectibles, Larry then pioneered the antique mall concept when he opened Holly Street Bazaar in 1980. In its heyday, it housed 50 dealers and was regularly featured in travel magazines and collector's guides from as far away as Japan. Larry then opened his first eponymous consignment store in Pasadena's Playhouse District, where he built a loyal following of estate sale customers all over Los Angeles who appreciated his eclectic mix of American, European and Asian antiques, collectibles and fine art. Larry retired in 2006 from the estate sale business and handed over Hughes to his son, Todd.
