In the late 1950’s, the Dorfman’s were assigned to Japan and it was while there that Joe decided to retire from military service after twenty years.

After a few odd jobs, the pair decided to try their hands at the used furniture business as The Treasure Hunt Shop, on the corner of Anacapa and Ortega Streets.

In the 1970’s they decided to upgrade to Antiques and Fine Arts at 825 Santa Barbara Street.

Upon retirement, Charlotte kept busy at home with sewing and reading while Joe could be found walking at the beach and meeting friends for coffee at the harbor.

The couple is survived by one daughter, Nancy Margaget Dorfman of Grover Beach, California.
