Red Door Antiques

Just a shelf of tins from Red Door Antiques.  I realized that the Shield Date tin was from where I had lunch with Tim and Nancy in Palm Springs last month.  Shield Dates Garden was built in 1924 when the Shields came to the California desert.   Mr. Shield, a pioneer in the date business,  started out by giving "date culture" lectures in the garden.  Today there is a famous restaurant and gift shop. The dates are still grown without chemicals or fertilizers.  Check out this place if you are ever in Palm Springs!
