Based out of New England, we pride ourselves on finding unique, amazing items across different eras. We love rust and paying homage to the craftsman of the past by injecting memories into modern spaces, It's a great way to add warmth and texture.
We're a husband and wife team that have over 30 years of design, merchandising and retail experience. We began in Southern California where we fell in love with Mid Century Modern (and each other).
Moving to New England, we found ways to combine modern items with a few great vintage pieces. Soon we were asked to design trade show booths, showrooms, private homes and retail spaces.
From small and delicate vintage fly fishing reels to large painted french hutches featuring the Union Jack, we think your space should be fun, special and interesting.
Vintage Industries Inc.........let's have some fun!
So I spent a couple of days writing this section. I referred back to retail pricing theory, supply and demand, elasticity studies and the economics of web based business as opposed to brick and mortar and I came to this conclusion, no one (not even me) cares.
Our method: We collect what we love and what we think others will enjoy. We price items well below conventional prices for like items. Why? A couple of reasons, we want items to find homes as quickly as possible. We don't have large warehouses (this costs dollars which you end up paying for). Our inventory turns or sells quickly, this allows us to go out and find more. We also aren't stuck on names, as mentioned, we buy what we love. If the item happens to be Eames, Risom, etc great but that doesn't come first, great design, great color, great textures always comes first. Lastly, condition is everything and we acknowledge that. Like us, many of our clients aren't stuck on mint or perfect condition because we can't afford it. We do our best to represent items flaws and all. This allows us to pick up great items (some with scratches, dents, and rust) at fantastic prices. This saves upwards of 80%.
We mix eras: Yes, yes, yes, we are guilty of mixing our 70's Chrome with our 50's Danish modern. We even infuse some industrial. It's a sin and we have been shunned by many skinny jeans type for doing so. We collect what we love and if it means teak with pop art chrome then call us guilty.
