the Guillermina story...

WHAT’S IN A NAME . . . ?

Why Guillermina? An Asian antique store with a Spanish name? Well, I am Filipino by birth and most of us have Spanish names because the Philippines was discovered and colonized by the Spaniards for more than three centuries. I was named after my grandfather, Guillermo, William in English, Guillaume in French. 

I acquired my love for Japanese art in the 1980’s and haven’t wavered since. Being Asian, of course I have an affinity for my culture and travel broadened my taste and heightened my eye for beautiful, creative works of art, which I try to bring to my shop.

Come by and visit the brick and mortar store in historic downtown Point Richmond, California, just north of San Francisco on the bay, or enjoy perusing the new online store.
