The past year does in fact seem to have passed by in a blur for retroda! So much has happened, is happening right now, and will be happening in the very near future. I hope all of that grammar is correct!
Here's a brief recap of what's going on with retroda:
Long Beach Antique Mall II - still running my business at this store as it continues to develop and build a customer base. Lots of new dealers have moved in and there's always something new to see.
inretrospect - This store's popularity continues to grow. Lots of publicity from magazine and newspaper articles, as well as some amazing special events hosted by the owners. I am currently working on a major expansion at this store - stay tuned for a location update coming soon!
Warehouse 1333 - Last year I opened a "shop within a shop" at this store in Long Beach. The store features an eclectic mix of product and sells a lot of furniture. I have mixed an assortment of Mid-Century goods, plus industrial/salvage and vintage office items including tanker desks, file cabinets, and other accessories.
Orange Avenue Estate, Salvage, & Garden - As of last Fall I no longer have a dealer space in this store.
One Kings Lane - A successful launch on the One Kings Lane website forced a quick learning curve on running a vintage e-commerce business! Photographing products, listing them for sale, staying in-stock with shipping boxes and packing supplies, and packing and shipping orders have added new tasks to the daily workload. Busy = success. Bring it on!
Long Beach Antique/Flea Market - retroda is no longer selling at the show, but you might see us shopping the aisles now. Watch for the overflowing carts headed to the parking lot!
That's a wrap. Will try my best not to "fall off the wagon" again, especially since its a vintage Radio Flyer!
