Las Tias is an upscale resale shop making waves in the heart of Wynwood because local designers and fashionistas have discovered that their well-curated mix of retro and modern decorative accents makes it easy to give a home a more personal touch. While bargain design seekers may head to IKEA for clean lines and sleek and simple pieces, they hit Las Tias for quirky and charming bits of old Florida glam to make any room feel homier.
If you are seeking inspiration during the Second Saturday hipster Art Crawl tonight, stop by Las Tias for free snacks, an open wine bar and a chance to see their latest discoveries in vintage furniture, home accessories, far out fashions and even a few quirky new products in the mix.
As more and more people embrace the GREEN trend, they find it’s chic to recycle and reuse the Mid-Century and Hollywood Regency treasures that are the hallmark of the shop’s collection.
An innovation of Miami Beach realtor Esther Percal who sells multi-million dollar properties for EWM Realty, Las Tias is the logical extension of her love of the glamorous Miami Beach mansions she wanders by day in pursuit of the perfect match of buyer and building. Finding people an ideal home and then helping them create an environment that suits their lifestyle simply goes hand in hand. With her new design shop, Percal’s influence extends beyond the escrow to the coffee tables and the knickknacks! The other “Tias” (Aunts in Spanish) are Carmen Santamarina and Ana Cristina Coto who will happily help you find a retro treasure of your own.
Transforming a warehouse in the emerging arts district, Las Tias sits at the corner of North Miami Avenue and NW 28 Street in a somewhat desolate patch of the newly gentrified area. Second Saturdays are organized monthly to promote nighttime visits to Wynwood where small businesses and larger art collections stay opened late and serve snacks to an appreciative and artsy crowd. Print yourself a map of the area here and discover the trendy new territory tonight!
