I want to thank those of you who went to support them after reading about it here and to thank Felicia at LA Weekly for blogging about it. Hopefully, it helped in some small way.
I was able to get some items to give to the Torrance Historic Society and Museum so that we can preserve the Ishibashi farm legacy here in Torrance. I got a strawberry tray, a lug box, a green basket they used for green beans and some strawberry baskets. I am hoping to get a t-shirt as well.
One of the things I am getting is this sign that they have said I can have to give to the Museum:
|So bittersweet, I really cried when I saw this as I walked up to the sale.|
|What once was the farm stand is now empty|
|Empty area where the bustling farm stand once stood|
