Pasadena Mystery Spot: The Perpetually Closing Furniture Store On Colorado Blvd

What is the sound of one hand clapping?  Why do you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?  Can you ever reach the horizon?

These are the questions are posed by our mysterious universe.  And lately, Pasadena residents have been faced with another, new Universal Paradox: why is there a furniture store on Colorado Boulevard which appears to be closing right away, and yet never closes? 

No doubt you have seen this metaphysical wonder, a.k.a. Nest Furnishings on 660 E. Colorado Blvd.  You may have noticed the subtle messaging with which they have announced that the store will be closing “soon”…

Frantic messaging conveys a sense of urgency to suckers.

In imminent danger of closing, immediately, since 2010.

These signs have been up since the fall of 2010.  What is the definition of “soon”?  In historical terms, “soon” may mean centuries.  In geological terms, it may mean millions of years.  So really, this isn’t just another shady furniture store abusing it’s customers with a deceptive sales message, right?  Right?


But who cares.  Not you, anyway.  Real Pasadena Snobs like us only buy our furniture at Fedde’s, anyway.

      Thank you for the greatest comment this site has ever received. I think the piece you are referring to (here) sold in the twenty or thirty dollar range, if my memory is correct. Unfortunately, it was sold to someone. I think if you check eBay every few weeks you might be able to grab it. Good luck, it is definitely an interesting retro work of art.
