Welcome to Divine Antiques. Beginning early and continuing for nearly four decades
Divine Antiques’ principals have been dedicated collectors, connoisseurs and sellers
of fine antiques and vintage collectibles. President Linda Kraai was raised in the
antique trade, tutored by two extremely knowledgeable collector/dealers, then educated
and trained in commerce and the corporate environment where she learned all aspects
of business operations. Then her focus again returned to antiques. After further
study and training in antique and estate jewelry, Linda and her husband/partner opened
a fine jewelry store, with emphasis on quality antique pieces, as well as high end
collectible vintage costume. Later, to better capitalize on their extensive combined
general antique knowledge base, they opened a second shop in the historical Sellwood
antique district of Portland, Oregon. Here they were able to offer a full line of
general antiques, while specializing in fine estate jewelry, vintage clothes, handbags
and vanity related items, to name a few. For many years they also participated in
general, as well as specialized antique shows, all over California, Oregon and Washington. Additionally,
for ten plus years they utilized the online Internet auction forum, where they narrowed
their focus somewhat, specializing in American and Continental sterling and coin
silver flatware, as well as hollowware, jewelry, watches, perfumes, vanity items,
vintage clothing, purses, sewing, textiles, linens, crystal, pottery, porcelain and
other interesting treasures for their loyal customers. In pursuit of wonderful antique
treasures they traveled extensively in the United States, Mexico and Europe.
Over their many years in business they established a notable reputation for offering
quality antiques, collectibles and heirloom estate items at affordable prices, while
prioritizing and maintaining exceptional customer service.
