OK, now the important part - bringing a bit of Palm Springs home with you. Here is my guide to great vintage and mostly consignment shopping in Palm Springs. It is SO good, and most of it SO inexpensive I hesitate to reveal my sources!
|Red Vintage Sofa, perfect condition, at the Estate Sale Company. $750|
|Incredible brass Ram's Head set coffee table base. At Buy Design, $12,000 (ok not as great of a deal but these are STUNNING - and there is a $48K dining table to match! hello!)|
|1983 Mercedes 380SL Roadster - 39,000 miles! $13,000 at McCormick's Exotic Cars|

AT Home PS
& many more consignment and Mid-Century Modern stores
This area is a wonderful little strip just outside of Palm Springs and is worth the ride (less than 2 miles from the Parker Hotel). There are stores that specialize in Danish Modern, a large space set up in booths with amazing prices (we bought a fab giant lamp here), and excellent well-curated stores like Michael Claybaugh's Buy Design that had incredible pieces including the brass rams and a 1960s Oscar de la Renta ball skirt. I die.
