Vintage Gifts & Who To Give Them To

Vintage Gifts & Who To Give Them To

It’s that time of year again - the shortest day of the year is on it’s way and western culture has long celebrated this event with the tradition of gift giving.  Whether you’re a Kwanza, Festivus, Hanukkah or even Christmas fan, giving the coolest gift means you can finish the year as a total legend!

While your family and friends are taking it easy with Amazon online, you can stand out with a gift that just screams “I actually spent my time thinking about you and getting something unique that you’re going to love!”  That dear reader, is what this time of year is supposed to be about.

We’ve grouped types of people into five different categories and come up with unique but inexpensive gifts that will show just how much you care, deeply about the intended recipient.

Sugary Confections | Vintage Murano Chandelier

The feeling you get walking into a vintage furniture shop is much like the feeling you use to get when stepping in to a candy store as a kid. The colorful sugary confections could turn any bad day into a brighter one. The only problem you were faced with at that moment was having to narrow down how exactly you would spend your last dime; gum drops, licorice, or taffy, that was the question. Not much has changed since then, has it? This vintage Murano chandelier with metal cage design was completely hand crafted. Murano glass is exclusively made on the Venetian island of Murano. The artisans of Murano are known for employing centuries-old techniques.

Stone's Throw Away | Marbro Murano Glass Lamp

Those who live in Murano glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Who would want to risk breaking such beautifully crafted Venetian glass? This Venetian glass lamp, made by Marbro,  was handblown from Murano glass and overlaid with metal grill work. The Marbro Lamp Company was started in LA by Morris Markoff and his brothers after WWII. Most of the lamps they made were one of a kind and took anywhere from 70-90 days to make. Marbro only hired the most experienced artisans so many of their employees were over 50 years of age.

Bills and laundry and deadlines. Can’t you just return to a simpler time when your mind had unlimited expanse? The end of your fingertips were not the end of your reach. A time when melting popsicles, liquifying crayons, and dripping skittles were your biggest obstacles?

This painting is a reminder of that simpler time. Take a trip down memory lane to your colorful youth while staring at this trippy abstract.

This 1950s floor lamp is also a magazine holder and a side table. The table is made of wood, the base is made of metal, and the magazine basket is made of vinyl. Set your wine on the table while you scan your latest Martha Stewart Living issue for decorating tips.

Double Leather LoungeNot Your Average Lazy Boy

You aren’t fooling anyone. We all know you aren’t making routine phone calls to important clients when you close your door after lunch. Your secret might remain one if you actually saw a doctor about your obnoxious snoring.

We forgive you though. You are a hard worker. You are the first one there in the morning and the last one to leave. You bring potato salad to every single office potluck. You worked hard to get that office with a view of the parking deck, so why not treat yourself to this chocolate gem.

This 1950s chocolate vinyl lounger still has its original upholstery. Pillow is included and automatic recliner is in working condition. Heats and reclines!

Tropical Wood LampsTropical Wood Lamps

Fresh coconut juice to wash down your grilled mahi. You would never have to smell bus exhaust or your co-workers lean cuisine again. You would spend your day marveling at the sunset, watching the tide rise, and falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing.

This set of 1960s hand carved wooden lamps depicts a tropical landscape complete with palm trees, coconuts and tiki huts.

New Items Arriving Every Week

Hand Crafted and whimsical Ice bucket

It's been a typical week at Casa Victoria, another 2 shipments arrived with 20 new items, including this fab vintage ice bucket! You may say to yourself,...."Ice Bucket?" and we say yes! Even ice buckets can be fabulous!

While it's true we are constantly getting in large items such as new sofas, dressers, etc...we are always on the hunt for those unique accessories, abstract paintings or wall sculptures that put the finishing touch on your room.

This ice bucket just in from Santa Barbara is one example of the great accessories that are constantly arriving at Casa Victoria. Its hand crafted and whimsical design make it a truly functional piece of art for your home or the perfect prop for a feature film set.

We do the driving

To keep our shipments flowing in here at Casa Victoria, we do a LOT of driving....to places such as South Dakota, St Louis, New Mexico (our most recent shipment arrived from Arizona)....all the while looking for that beautiful Chesterfield sofa or Murano lamp that's been buried and forgotten in someones big red barn. We also shop all over Southern California, looking for items such as this Italian Arc Lamp by FLOS, which sold within hours of hitting the sales floor.Italian Arc Lamp by FLOS While priced at over $3000.00 elsewhere...our price of $795.00 was a fantastic deal for one lucky client.

Priced to move

We buy items out of LA to get the lowest possible prices, which we then pass on to our clients with fantastic deals. We sell high quality items such as vintage Baker furniture, Marbro lamps, etc. at a fraction of the cost you would pay for them on the West-side or in other cities. Our low prices mean our inventory turns quickly and we have new items arriving daily.

Silverlake Location

Being located on the Silverlake Strip on Sunset Blvd. a few miles west of Downtown LA makes us a convenient shopping destination for the entire LA area and the San Fernando Valley. We are particularly convenient for studio set decorators and designers looking for that hard to find item.
