Being an antique collector her entire adult life provided her with the knowledge she needed to start In Your Wildest Dreams. As a young mother, she also learned how to be frugal and save a buck at yard sales and thrift stores. It later became a family tradition, what she did for fun with her mom, sister, and daughter on the weekends. It was inevitable that she would turn her love for people, antiques, and great deals into a thriving business.

Groovy Gary

I am a God fearing, family man who has had the pleasure to be married to my sweetheart for over 30 years. An amazing feat! I have a wonderful daughter who has found her place in the world, the love of her life and is off to make they're mark on our community. I was born in Dinuba, CA, but was raised and educated here in Bakersfield. I discovered a passion for plants while attending Bakersfield College and have always worked in some form of Agriculture. I spent the last 29 years of my career managing a local citrus nursery and participating in the preservation of the California citrus industry.

   After a memorable 60th birthday party, I decided it was time for a career change. The only other skill I had that made money was Urban Recycling, more commonly known as Junk Dealing. I don't know where I acquired the passion for it, possibly my Portuguese grandmother, but I have been collecting and selling my wares for about 15 years in local antique malls as well as in Cambria. I started selling, and still do to this day, aloha shirts and dresses, vinyl records and Pop culture artifacts. This lead me to pursuing Dixie at IYWD  and convincing her that she needed me as a team member in estate sales division. I had been a customer of hers for years and casual friend via the sales. Slowly our conversations became more about life and I decided she was someone I would enjoy working for. We have the same work ethic, love to laugh and the same passion for abandoned critters.
   My wife and I have adopted four rescued dogs and two cats and are dedicated to helping these lost angels. Little did I know that my co-workers share the same passion and all have a menagerie of rescued critters. My other passions included collecting artifacts from the original Tiki culture era, collecting vinyl records of surf guitar bands, old Bakersfield Sound and Instrumental rock and roll. One of my most favorite things to do is to go out and listen to live music. My favorite artists are Chris Isaak, Dwight Yoakum, Rodney Crowell, The Mavericks and many others who have that revved up retro sound.
   What I like most about working for Wildest Dreams are the people I work with, who are truly dedicated to providing the best possible service for out clients and our customers. We love each other, work hard and like to laugh. It's very hard work, but the comradery with each other and our customers make it worth it. Sale days are a blast! I've been given the title Activities Director, which makes me laugh, but I do hope the someday soon we will be able to take my passion for live music and turn it into many fun fundraisers for Trudy's Kids, a wonderful organization dedicated to helping foster children.
