Modern Merchant Florida

Dave Bruce, owner, has been picking and collecting Mid-Century furniture since the 1990s.  In 2015, Dave met up with Conrad Petzinger, owner of Rad Harbor Vintage, and they rented a 4,000 sq ft warehouse in the heart of  Safety Harbor's warehouse district.  The like-mindedness between the two led to a whirlwind of picking madness. Since then, the duo have been traveling the country finding Mid-Century Modern and Danish Modern Teak furniture.
