CASA TWICE IS CHANGING THE WAY SOUTH FLORIDA SHOPS FOR THE HOME.
October 11, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Veteran Spanish-language television executive, Carmen Franchi de Alfaro; and her husband, renowned actor and personality of Spanish television, radio and stage, Gilberto Reyes, open Miami’s next big thing in shopping for the home: Casa Twice.
On the heels of their success with TWICE Consignment, a vintage and consignment emporium located just off of Bird Road and 57th Avenue, offering mostly women’s clothing and accessories, the couple saw a need for a dedicated store just for items for the home. Casa Twice, located minutes away from TWICE in the Bird Road Arts District, will offer consignment, vintage and “up-cycled” furniture, art, home accessories, fabrics, china, glassware and patio furniture and décor to lovers of all things vintage, funky, retro and cool. For this venture, Franchi and Reyes turned away from the traditional warehouse or showroom concept and opted instead to painstakingly refurbish a series of old Florida houses and cottages, making the experience of shopping for the home that much more exciting.
Casa Twice sets out revitalize vintage shopping in the Bird Road Arts District by creating an “Antiques Row”, a place to find treasures for the home and patio, a place for local artisans to gather and display and sell their wares; a destination for South Floridians and tourists to come browse through items both decorative and historical, and a destination for everyone who loves the thrill of mixing decorating with treasure hunting. All accomplished with the experienced hand and eye only two veterans of the entertainment world can bring.
The store’s grand opening takes place Saturday October 11th starting at 11 A.M. (complete with food trucks, the store’s private-brand “adult” lemonade stand and more). A private, invitation-only event for friends, family and select media will take place the night before, Friday, October 10th, starting at 7 P.M. Food, live music and a few surprises will take place in in Casa Twice’s festive courtyard.
All events will take place at Casa Twice, 4215 S.W. 72 Avenue, Miami, FL 33155.
