A friend turned me on to mine. and told me I must check it out. The store oozes character and the story behind the creation of mine. and the name itself is one we all can relate to. The owner, Lori Fradella, worked for a few other furniture stores and recently shared a store with a partner. This time around she wants to show the world that she can do it on her own, hence the name mine.
Featured Furniture: Bar: Patinated steel script, part of ‘beauty bar’ signage, Cabinet: 1920-30’s European multi-use modular cabinetry, Pendants: Brass and molded glass pendant lights rewired and reconfigured, Candlesticks: Brass c.1950’s US
We can't help but root for Lori and her brand new store, which opened only a few months ago. We are craving vintage furnishings lately and mine. fits the bill — she has an eye for fantastic vintage pieces. We love the interesting combination of furniture vignettes, such as the harp case paired with the chair on a hook.
We are definitely going to check back in with Lori and mine. in a few months. We want to see where her inspiration takes the store.
