Kara studied Industrial Design at Cal State Long Beach so she has studied furniture design. Some furniture items include a rolling cart, an art deco display cabinet, and a brass towel stand for the bath. Kara sources her pieces from estate sales and from other collectors. She also finds unique pieces at homes that are being remodeled and refurbished. "People don't think about their hardware from a demo, and then I get really cool stuff that would have been thrown away," she says.
There is also an old Hoffman radio which is a tube radio in a wood case. It's AM radio only, of course, and it is in working condition. The wood cabinet is in a dark wood and it's in good condition for its age. It comes with its skeleton key that locks the cabinet.
