The Gold Bug

The Gold Bug in Pasadena is just the greatest kept secret in Old Town. Every time I go in it is like stepping into an alternate world and I'm sucked in by the amazing art and Entomology. I just want to live in this store. I think this is #2 on my favorite stores list (The Paper Source is #1).

Did you know....

You can read the full text of Edgar Allan Poe's, "The Gold Bug" HERE.

Someone please buy me these 3 things :-)
