Hilton House Marks 9th Year with Celebration on Dec. 2, 2010
Business Expands With Pre-Owned Treasures at Bargain Basement Prices Helping the Planet
ORINDA, CA (November 18, 2010) – Hilton House Consign/Design & Estate Liquidations, Inc., will host its ninth annual holiday celebration on Thursday, December 2. The legendary party – open to all from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. – is also a customer appreciation event, with music, dancing, food and bar. This year will feature the firm’s new branch expansion, giving even more choices than before. As is the custom, everything will be at sale prices.
When MBA Cyndi Hilton left her high-tech executive career, her entrepreneurial thoughts turned to an untried business model. Today, her thriving enterprise has created what amounts to the town’s de facto recycling center – of a very different kind – in upscale Orinda.
The trend-setting boutique across from the town’s public library gives residents, often less willing to self-market items they no longer need, an easy and anonymous way to recycle their fine jewelry, sterling silver, collectibles, furniture and unique brand-named home treasures. Filled with like-new objects carrying respected brand names that sold new for top dollar, the store represents a treasure hunt of bargains for perceptive clients, and a way for previous owners to cash in. Shoppers find a wide array of items at bargain prices. New items like gifts, hand-made rugs and teak furniture complete the mix.
“Of course, a giant side benefit of all this is helping our planet by recycling,” emphasizes founder Hilton. “Every time a beautiful piece finds its second life in a new home, that saves resources, energy and space in a landfill.”
A patron added, “There is no reason to buy new. I find the best stuff, help the planet, save money, and get some back by letting Hilton House resell items I no longer need in my home. It’s the best circle of green that exists.”
