eneral Manager of Lexus of Las Vegas Bill Garness'
taste for the finer things in life runs beyond nice
cars. Six years ago he started collecting antique
cufflinks. "I was in an antique shop in Napa Valley and my
wife and I started looking around. We ran across these
green cufflinks and a pair of mother-of-pearl too, and I
thought they were very, very unique. "
Since then Garness' penchant for cufflinks has steadily
grown and he has acquired 15 pair from various antique
shops in Temecula, La Jolla and Napa Valley.
"I like the hunt. You are going out there and finding
something unique and one-of-a-kind. I have thought
about doing custom but that would take the thrill out of
finding them," said Garness, who has always worn French
cuffs. "I like the experience of searching in these different
locations. It's become a hobby for me and my wife. And my
kids get into it too." q
