It’s October 2017 and there’s a change in the air - can you feel it? And no, we’re not talking the weather - we’re talking style, we’re talking fashion, we’re talking luxury!
While it may be a little early to declare the death of Danish modern and classic mid century, our customers are voting with their wallets. They want brass and bronze, not chrome, they want large print fabrics and elegant buttons instead of clean lines and minimalism. When everybody can get that clean look from IKEA - why would you - someone with style - want the same?
Selling a house is easy right? That's why realtors charge super low commissions and the whole process is a breeze!
OK - now that we've all had a good laugh, today we're going to look at how, with a bit of homework and some great vintage items, you can make the whole thing not only enjoyable, but incredibly profitable too!
My love of vintage luggage can be traced to my days running one of California’s finest luggage shops, El Portal Luggage in Century City. It was a little Rodeo Drive under one roof - the things we sold were amazing.
El Portal had started as a 400 square feet store on Las Vegas’ Fremont street in 1936. Their focus on selling only the best brands and merchandise meant by the end of the century they were an international operation with stores all over the world and 17 in California and Nevada alone.
