Crazy Sale

If any of you have been to the Magic Castle in Hollywood, you probably know its owners are Milt and Arlene Larsen, who live right here in Santa Barbara. There will soon be a Magic Castle Cabaret located at the Bird Refuge. It will be a private club with 200 members and a dress code: coat and tie and cocktail attire, plus magic for entertainment.

Meantime, the Larsens decided they had too much stuff and needed more storage space – so the Craziest Sale Ever was held in their new place that used to be Café del Sol. They made almost $2,000, which will be dispersed by the Bucket Brigade for the victims of the Montecito mudslides.

Gretchen Lieff was also there with a batch of Ty Warner’s latest creation – Cito – a mixed-breed rescue dog that will be given to Montecito schools, firefighters, police officers, and animal shelters that helped with the fire and flood. I bought one for $10, with the money going to the cause. The tag is so sweet, “If there is a fire or flood. Even if there’s a lot of mud, I will help you find your way, if you’re hurting or gone astray.”
