Style File: Home Shopping
Call it the newest version of the home shopping network. Ladies all over South Florida are setting up shop at your home. 7's Belkys Nerey shows us why you might want to host a trunk show in tonight's Style File.
WSVN -- Mothers inspire their daughters all the time, but for Patricia Bruno-Rivero, her mom Josie sparked a great business idea.
Patricia Bruno-Rivero: "I found a picture of her and with that picture I found a piece of luggage full of all this costume jewelry."
Patricia Bruno-Rivero: "She had a little bit of a problem, she would buy a lot of things, but she also made a lot of it. She was very crafty."
Patricia decided to honor her mother by hosting trunk shows to sell her mom's vintage jewelry.
Patricia Bruno-Rivero: "I think if I put her in front, it's more that I'm doing it for her than I am myself."
Sara Richmond: "There's a little bracelet with Miami on it, really cute probably came from the true deco days."
Patricia is a stylist for local celebs so she also sells fabulous designer pieces.
Patricia Bruno-Rivero: "I have a lot of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Pucchi. If it's a luxury item I have it. It's either brand new or gently worn and it's hundreds of dollars less than you would find it at a store."
She'll bring all the vintage and designer goods to your home and set up shop for you and friends. Believe us, you and your girls will be fighting over all the stuff especially the purses and shoes.
Lourdes Rivero: "When you have it at your house, you get first dibs. You get to try on everything first. This is the bag I couldn't part with. I had a lady who came who really wanted it she grabbed it, I told her let me have it."
If you're all about jewelry how about throwing a "stella and dot" party.
Jacqueline Ivory: "This is definitely about having fun."
The popular jewelry line can only be bought at private parties.
Jacqueline Ivory: "What really appealed to me is that half of the line is under $50. The variety of styles for the jewelry line is tremendous. They have everything from delicates all the way up to huge statement pieces. They are on trend without being trendy."
Jacqueline Ivory will bring the jewelry to your home or office you and your girls can sip wine and play dress up.
Jacqueline Ivory: "You try it on, you play with it and if you like it, then we place an order for you."
Stacey Wald: "I got this bangle and these earrings. They are for every day."
Best part if you host a party you can earn some free pieces if your guests buy enough.
Lisa Rubin: "I hosted a party and my friends bought so much I never expected them to buy so much."
So get connected with the new home shopping network.
Belkys Nerey: "It usually doesn't cost anything to host a trunk show they do all the work in setting up everything for the party."
