Our near and dear friend Denise Portmans recently opened up her new shop, Merchant, in Santa Monica, so of course Kiki and I had to check out the goods! Denise has owned the amazing vintage clothing store "Gotta Have It" for the last 23 years, located in the heart of Venice Beach, CA. After styling fashion for so many years, she naturally transitioned into interior design and launched Merchant, a home goods boutique. Denise sources mid-century furniture, objects, art, ceramics and rugs for the shop and it's also a hub for local artists, designers and photographers.  Be sure to check out Merchant's monthly events showcasing the artists' workwe'll be there!
