A unique marketplace for buying and selling pre-owned décor, The Local Vault is quickly making a name for itself in the home design circuit. All pieces are selected by experts, and buyers have the ease of free pick-up. Co-founder Patricia Espinosa, who has a background in fashion and magazine, shares the company’s aesthetic and approach to giving older pieces new life.
How would you describe your business?
The Local Vault (TLV) is an online luxury consignor of home décor and furniture offering easy access to a curated collection of high-end furnishings. To ensure our customers always get the best selection of luxury items at an exceptional value, we hand-select our inventory from both private sellers, as well as area retailers and antique dealers based on beauty, style and quality.
What makes The Local Vault unique?
As a seller you never lose possession of the item until it’s sold. We market your
items and reach a much broader audience. Buyers can shop from an ever-changing inventory at 50 to 80 percent off retail. Enjoy the convenience of shopping online while gaining access to designer brands, to-the-trade pieces, a mix of styles and new pieces. And, these gorgeous items are all available immediately!
How has online shopping changed how people buy home décor?
Today, online furniture sales are a $10-billion industry with a 14 percent annual growth rate. The beauty of TLV is that we bridge the gap between brick and mortar, and online shopping. Visitors to the site can shop with confidence knowing that our team of curators has personally vetted each piece.
It’s like shopping with a trusted friend; we give it to you straight.
