Scavenger’s Paradise; A Never Ending Journey of Design, Inspiration, and Discovery
By Diane Saher
While it may be sad that lounging by the pool with Liz and Dick is no longer possible, we now offer this alternative; your own pool might be just the place for the amazing 19th century limestone pedestals that once adorned the glamorous Taylor-Burton estate in Bel Air! These are the latest additions to a fabulous assortment of architectural elements, European antiques, fine and decorative art, vintage lighting, garden statuary, pots and fountains that are all to be found here at Scavenger’s Paradise.
Scavenger’s Paradise was established in 1954 and is the oldest surviving architectural/antique business in Los Angeles. Gilliam Greyson acquired Scavenger’s from the original owners in 2004 and continues the tradition of offering the finest in unique antiques and eclectic vintage décor. Recently relocating to Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, she also offers design services which focus on integrating vintage and antique elements into modern design. “Using these elements imbues the finished project with a deeper resonance,” Greyson says. “It is wonderful to see a new generation appreciating them and incorporating them into new settings.”
Greyson also offers estate liquidation services. She will purchase outright if there are just a few things to be sold or she will liquidate the entire estate. As a knowledgeable expert, she and her team will professionally conduct your estate sale — please inquire.
Scavenger’s Paradise is located at 3425 W. Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, Sunday and Monday by appointment, please call 818.843.5257. Please come by and be sure to ask Gilliam to introduce you to Duke, the friendly Rhodesian mix who wags his tail while Gilliam gives you the grand tour of Scavenger’s Paradise!
