Glendale-based Clifford Antiques is opening a second store on Oct. 17 in trendy Magnolia Park at 3429 Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank. The original store in Glendale is located at 1644 Victory Blvd.
The Clifford story began overseas. Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, William Clifford moved to Ohio in 1954. It was there that he first discovered his passion for antiques and, at age 19, began collecting. His frequent travels back to Scotland were spent antique hunting and building his knowledge. Clifford saw an opportunity to expand his hobby into a business and was soon shipping his first container to the U.S. and opening his first shop.
Throughout the years, the store’s locations included Brentwood, Santa Monica and Malibu, enjoying a healthy celebrity clientele. Retiring in 2000, Clifford never lost his passion for antiques and continued collecting items from various locations in Scotland.
Meanwhile, Clifford’s daughter Pauline also grew to love all things from way back when, and with her own passion for the 1950s era, the Cliffords couldn’t ignore an opportunity to reopen the shop in new locations—Glendale and, now, Burbank.
Today, Pauline Clifford is entrusted to re-establish the business, adding a fresh touch to a long-standing institution by adding vintage, retro and midcentury items to the store. Additionally, the new store also features antique California art paintings.
Clifford Antiques & Collectables is located at 1644 Victory Blvd. (at Western Ave.) in Glendale and at 3429 Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank. Visit CliffordAntiques.com or call (818) 552-3646 for more information.
