The Zoe Report | The Best Vintage Décor In Palm Springs
"For Alex Alonso of Miami-based Mr. Alex Tate Design, the city’s worthiness as a vintage destination isn’t just about the breadth or uniqueness — he actually calls shopping in Palm Springs an “educational” experience. “[Here], antique dealers care about their items and take time to find out about the provenance of the pieces as much as they can,” he tells TZR. Plus, he continues, “Vendors are knowledgable and so very nice. They actually like meeting people who appreciate the same things they do.”
To put it simply, if you like midcentury pieces, Alonso calls the town a “must-visit” destination. That said, the pros do share some shopping advice to help you make the most of your time, especially given that there’s just so much to see. First thing to do, according to Alonso? Do your research. “Before you get there, start looking up stores and where they are in relation to each other,” he suggests. “For some, you might want to reach out prior to going to the store and ask about what they specialize in — it might be furniture, lighting, textiles, etc.” This will help you map out a schedule so that you can maximize your visit (i.e. still have ample time for cocktails and sunbathing)."
