That woman’s CALL NAME on IG is I_MAGNIN.
Me being Me got curious and I asked if she was related to the SPECIALITY STORE that use to be based in San Francisco!
YES, was the response…….!!!!!
WE had a LOVELY BACK and FOURTH as I had to tell her I had worked for I. MAGNIN’s and JOSEPH MAGNIN’s years ago when I was a young thing majoring in FASHION MERCHANDISING!
In fact, I had just gone to MACY’s to VISIT the OLD POWER ROOM from I.MAGNIN’s DAYS!
IT was the MOST GLAMOROUS Bathroom I have ever been in.
When I went to the city from MARIN COUNTY with my MOTHER we would ALWAYS stop by the I. MAGNIN POWER ROOM!
BACK in THE DAY…….1960’s, 1970’s all our Doctors and Dentist’s were in the CITY!
450 SUTTER STREET and 490 POST STREET!
I FELT LIKE I HAD JUST MET A MOVIE STAR!
As she is A direct descendent of the I.MAGNIN FAMILY!
I Get to GIFT YOU NOW this pair of LIGHT PINK FRAMES with a POWER of 200 READING GLASSES!
If you leave a comment with a little BLURP to me your name will GO INTO A TOP HAT and perhaps I will have MISTER BANKSY tip the TOPHAT to FIND A WINNER!
MAYBE I can Video tape THAT and SHARE NEXT POST when I ANNOUNCE THE WINNER!
I will MAIL TO YOU as we will correspond by EMAIL and I will also add a little something from MY CASA in the BOX!
Let’s just call this a FEBRUARY PICK ME UP BOX!
I MUST SHARE with ANN ONE of MOST SPETACULAR pieces MY MOTHER bought on the FIRST FLOOR of I. MAGNIN’s in UNION SQUARE years ago!
This BEADED NECKLACE………I cherish to this DAY!
I also Own a sign that came from the THIRD FLOOR SALON, (I BELIEVE)that says GOWNS……….
I purchased at a FLEA MARKET and she told me she went to the LIQUIDATION SALE,which I knew about BUT COULDNOT BRING MYSELF TO GO!
TOO SAD FOR ME!

I would LOVE for it to find it’s way HOME!
ANN ARE YOU READING HERE?
Leave me a comment so I have your email address SO I can send to YOU!
DO YOU KNOW THERE is A BOOK on THE STORE?
Well, I’m telling YOU there is and it is PINK just LIKE THE GLASSES!
IT was a BEAUTIFUL STORE and had a few branches as Far East as CHICAGO.As far NORTH as SEATTLE and of course in Southern California were I worked in the 1980’s!
I would ASSUME A LOT of YOU remember this JEWEL of a STORE?
The entire FACADE of the UNION SQUARE shop was white marble.
SHE WAS KNOW AS THE MARBLE LADY!
IN MY OPINION There is NOT a STORE TODAY that comes close to this WHITE MARBLE LADY!
SO, LEAVE ME A COMMENT and I will PUT YOUR NAME IN THE TOPHAT and let the WINNER KNOW on my NEXT POST who has WON! IT will be AN AGELESS STYLE POST!MY GUESS is MY VICTIM for JANUARY will remember MAGNIN’s and have a story or TWO to SHARE!
THANK YOU EYEBOBS…………….
I LOVE YOUR GLASSES and I HOPE I can get a FEW OTHERS HOOKED TOO!
AS FOR MY HEALTH!
MICHELLE BRANCH, YOU made me aware of POTS which led me to DYSAUTONOMIA!
This is me through and through!
I can NOT THANK YOU ENOUGH for this valuable information!
I will be in TOUCH via EMAIL if the TESTS CONFIRM this DIAGNOSIS TODAY!
Just want you to know I emailed MY DOCTORESSA with this information!
She set up a phone call so we could CHAT!
From there she sent me to CARDIOLOGY who sent me to NEUROLOGY who sent me back to MY MEDICAL DOCTOR to do THE TEST!
THIS WAS ALL ACCOMPLISHED IN ONE DAY!
MAYBE MY LUCK HAS TURNED!!!!!!!!
I just want TO SAY THANK YOU to ALL who left a comment on MY LAST POST with STORIES and INFORMATION for me to CONSUME!
TRUELY, this was THE BEST MEDICAL ADVISE I COULD RECEIVE and to know a few of YOU have the same thing was INCREDIBLE TO ME!
I WILL BE IN TOUCH IF I GET ANYWHERE TODAY WITH THIS DIAGNOSIS!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
IT HAS BEEN CONFIRMED I HAVE WHAT IS CALLED POTS.
Other symptoms of POTS include discomfort in the head and neck, visual changes, weakness or poor concentration over a period of at least six months. Beta-blockers or alpha-2 agonists are medicines used to treat the disorder. Other treatments include orthostatic exercise and drinking water, but no single treatment has proven completely effective.
