Leftover Luxuries, a Venice-based home consignment pop-up shop, has partnered with the Delancey Street Foundation to sell Christmas trees starting this Monday, Dec .1.
The shop, which opened at 712 Lincoln Boulevard last month, was planning to sell outdoor furniture on their patio, but the furniture never arrived.
That’s when the shop called Delancey Street Foundation – who used to sell trees in Venice seven years ago, but lost their lot — to see if they wanted to sell trees from their patio, and as they say, “the rest was history,” and a sub-lease between the foundation and Leftover Luxuries was signed quickly.
The ever-efficient men of Delancey Street Foundation have already converted the patio into a winter wonderland, complete with lights and an outdoor “showroom,” ready for the season to start.
Delancey Street is considered the country’s leading residential self-help organization for substance abusers, ex-convicts, and homeless people who are ready for a second chance.
They are completely self sufficient, relying solely on funds generated themselves through their many business entities, which include moving services, Christmas tree sales, and hospitality services
in six cities across the U.S.
Their Los Angeles facility is the former Hilton Hotel, which was built for the Olympics in 1984.
Leftover Luxuries is a high-end furniture and home décor consignment shop that offers everything from Mid-Century Heywood Wakefield furniture and vintage collectibles, to newly reupholstered furniture from interior designers, and artwork from local artists.
The store and tree lot are located at 712 South Lincoln Blvd, between Indiana Ave., and Vernon Ave., just south of Rose Avenue. For more information, call Leftover Luxuries at 310.650.2693 or email Jenn@leftoverluxuries.com.
