We’re often asked about the history of the old items we sell, but it’s rare that bios come along with them.  Believe me, we ask, but often it’s hearsay or speculation.  Sometimes, we get lucky and we find something at the original source … a shut-down factory or grandpa’s old workshop … where provenance can be revealed.  But most often it’s left to our imagination and sometimes more fun that way.

Back to my Roots

Industrial style is hot, hot, hot!  I love that it is, but the market’s become oversaturated with inexpensive industrial reproductions.  I’ve been doing authentic vintage industrial design in the Cedros Design District for over fourteen years now, longer than any of the chain stores who’ve since jumped on the bandwagon.  But, in reviewing the past year, I, too, found myself sucked in to the abundance and affordability of “made in _______” knock-offs.  Since true vintage and antique industrial pieces have become so scarce and thus expensive, these mass-produced options were tempting.  But, I feel as I surrendered to the temptation, I lost my true intention.

It’s time to get back to my roots.  While I’ll continue to source affordable well-made accessories and gifts, I’m searching farther afield for the good stuff.  I’m digging deeper.  I’m tapping into my well of artists and craftsmen to collaborate on more one-of-a-kind pieces.  I’d rather spend my buying budget with these creative souls … it’s a win-win.  I much prefer selling one fabulous vintage $2000 table or original artwork than ten or twenty cheap, poorly made pieces of ….

Imagine the time I’ll save not having to peel off millions of “made in Chindia” stickers!  More time to blog!

Are you with me?


Note:  One of my goals this year is to be more prolific with my blogposts.  When I started the blog last Spring, I was planning to post weekly.  But, life got in the way and weekly became bi-monthly became monthly became occasional!  If I can at least accomplish a monthly post, I’ll be happy.  So, by the skin of my teeth, I just made January!

Since I’ve been so lax in my blogging duties as of late, I’ve decided to discipline myself by posting an Instagram-A-Day for the rest of the year!

Have you Instagrammed yet?  Everybody’s doing it!  Instagram is a free photo-sharing program that’s quickly becoming another popular social networking tool (Facebook just bought Instagram for $1 billion!).  Although I’m fairly new to it (I still don’t understand how to use hashtags), I’m finding it a really fun way to share photos with friends, colleagues and customers.

With the enormous volume of goods arriving at SoLo daily for the holiday season, it’s impossible to keep my website updated with all the new goodies.  So starting today, I will be posting photos to Instagram every day for the rest of the year.  If you’re not already following me, my username is jenniferpricestudio … please join me to stay in the loop!
