Liza Canale is the owner and curator of Area 2 Trading Company. She has always loved unique and quality home furnishings. Prior to Area2, she managed estate sales, selling antiques, rugs, fine-art, and gently-used vintage home decor. While she loved connecting buyers and sellers, the hassle of estate sales and consignment stores seemed inefficient. At the start of 2014, she developed Area 2 Trading Company to be an online market place for design-loving locals who want to sell old valuables or buy new ones with confidence in both the quality of the products and the transaction.
