Vave Studios

Vavé (vah- vey) is a made up word that sounds kinda French. It combines the last names of Patrice & Jessica, who own and run the studio. For years, they’ve been working collaboratively with brides to bring floral visions to life. They love flowers and design and sharing their passions with people in love.

Vavé caters to the contemporary flower lover, combining classic peonies or roses with off-beat botanicals in our creation of bouquets, flower crowns, lush garlands and accent pieces, floral installations and other gifts and goodies to be found in their shop on Fremont Ave!

Outpost – South Pasadena’s first and only shop for guys. And if there’s another “guys” spot in South Pas, chances are it’s nothing like this one. They’re not another hipster spot trying desperately to sell you an image or the latest trends. Outpost is a statement. It says “I WEAR WHAT I AM” and not the other way around.

They’re an idea that men can still be providers, bug smashers, mechanics, laborers & weekend warriors, punkers, rockers, skaters, riders & cruisers. It’s an idea that hard work still exists & has value.
