CONGRATULATIONS TO THIS YEAR’S WINNERS!

Posted: July 27th, 2018 | Featured, Features | No Comments

An important part of what makes La Mesa special are the businesses — big, medium and small — that are owned and staffed by the families and people in our community. They work hard, day in and day out, to provide retail shopping, medical services, law advice, and a multitude of other vital services and products we need. That is why one of the most exciting times of the year for us at San Diego Community News Network is the release of our “Best of La Mesa” issue, which puts a spotlight on those local businesses who are doing the very best in a variety of categories.

Each year we ask our loyal readers to nominate their favorite businesses and professionals. Once again, we received hundreds of nominations from residents eager to share their thoughts on the most deserving candidates. We tally the votes, compile a directory and send out awards — many of which you’ll see proudly displayed on the walls of local businesses and offices.

Some of these businesses have been serving La Mesa residents and out-of-town shoppers and visitors for decades. Others have only just begun to make an impact on the community, but have obviously caught the attention of local consumers by doing things right.

We encourage readers to hang on to this Best of La Mesa section throughout the year as a handy guide for the next time you look for an optometrist, a dry cleaner, a doctor, a new piece of furniture, or any other item or service you need or want.

And if by chance you disagree with any of the winners, we encourage you to keep your eyes peeled for next year’s ballots, which will be published in 2019. After all, competition is part of the fun.

Congratulations to all winners!

— SDCNN Staff.

davidaantiques.com

Hello, my name is David. I’ve been an antique collector and dealer for 30 years and am a certified appraiser through the Ashford Institute of Antiques.

My parents were antique collectors and artists. Their interests gave me the desire to enjoy and pursue my dreams. I lived in Europe for four years, which helped me appreciate antiques on a world-wide scale.

I enjoy the history and personal stories behind the pieces I discover. I consider myself a history detective as I discover the uniqueness and qualities of goods and family treasures. Because of my vast and long-standing experience and knowledge, the origin of a piece can be found or followed. While my passion is American antiques, I appreciate the significance of historical merit and craftsmanship in all worldly antiques.

I work with individuals, families, real estate agents, attorneys, accountants, trust departments, and retirees that want to downsize their homes. I put your best interests first to maximize your estate sale returns.

I have 30-plus years of experience, and provide the following services: consultation, estate sales, certified appraisals, consignment/brokerage, guest speaking, host an appraisal party, church or school events, and antique fairs or shows.

Boulevard Barber & Shave

8283 La Mesa Blvd.
La Mesa 91942
boulevardbarber.com | 619-464-6500

I’m honored that the community of La Mesa has voted Boulevard Barber & Shave the Best Barber Shop. I’ve been a barber going on 29 years now.

I used to go to my dad’s barber shop when I was a kid and watch him cut hair. He was the one who inspired me to go to school and acquire my license. Barbering has been both a career and an enjoyment for me for many reasons. Aside from granting me the ability to work side by side with father for 20 years, I am passionate about the satisfaction of giving a great haircut to the clients and friends that I’ve made, over the years.

We are a modern-day barber shop — with an old-time feel — for today’s gentleman of leisure. We offer haircuts, hot towel shaves, beard trims, shampoos and complimentary beer (as well as discounts for seniors and active military). The tradition will continue here, at Boulevard Barber & Shave.

Thank you, La Mesa, for voting Free Rein Boutique the Best Boutique.

Two years ago, Heather – the owner – was 10 years strong as a manager at the Enterprise Car Rentals San Diego Airport location. However, she had always had a passion for the fashion industry. Heather decided to make the bold move of quitting her job and following her dream, signing a lease for retail space at the Grossmont Shopping Center.

Heather knows that word of mouth has really helped to establish her in her endeavors and is extraordinarily thankful that the community of La Mesa is actively supportive of small businesses — especially hers! Much thanks, again, from Free Rein Boutique.

SILVER – Uneeke Boutique

Uneeke Boutique

4674 Nebo Drive
La Mesa 91941
619-825-9487

I am beyond grateful and humbled for all the love and support of those who voted Uneeke Boutique for the Best of La Mesa Boutique Silver Winner. Thank you!

For many who don’t know the story behind Uneeke Boutique, to say that I was a young girl who wanted to have her own boutique or because I love fashion and wanted my own store is an understatement. I made retail/fashion my career, worked with big retailers and independent retailers.

The experience, knowledge, lessons, do’s and don’ts I took along the way and added to my dedication, hard-work, persistence, drive and passion. I ventured on my own, started Uneeke2 a pop-up in 2011 and in 2014, I opened Uneeke Boutique in La Mesa.

It is my promise to continue to be “The Boutique” that showcases unique styles at affordable prices for today’s woman. As I like to say: without “you,” there would be no “UB!”

Some people were born to be certain things in life, such as doctors, professional athletes, engineers. Well with us, you could say we were born to be in the mattress business. Our journey started even before we were born. It started in the 60’s when our grandpa started a small little mattress factory near downtown San Diego. These were the good old days in the mattress industry when natural materials were naturally used — before the gels, memory foams, air beds, “no flip” and “bed in a box” mattresses gimmicks.

We started Mattress Makers with the goal of providing the best mattress shopping experience ever, and providing San Diego with the highest quality mattresses at fair prices and without the harmful chemicals of typical mattresses.

Thank you, La Mesa Courier for running your annual Best of La Mesa contest — I’m really happy to be the recipient of your 2017 Gold Winner for Best Real Estate Agent!

I’ve worked the La Mesa real estate market since the tail end of 2002 and love and appreciate all La Mesa’s neighborhoods: Mt. Helix, Village, Windsor Hills, Eastridge, Grossmont, Lake Murray, Fletcher Hills, Academy Heights and so on. Each neighborhood is very distinctive and it’s gratifying seeing so many people discovering La Mesa and choosing our city to be their home. My own property is a 1920’s Spanish on Lemon Avenue which was featured on a home tour hosted by the La Mesa’s Historical Society!

Thank you for awarding my brokerage, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, as Gold Winner for Best Real Estate Office. They’re the best company I’ve ever worked for. Keep up the great work. We love The Courier!
