I have been a member of Modern Phoenix for two years and recently moved to Tucson from Phoenix, where I lived for 13 years. I have just opened a Tucson boutique called black cat vintage that is a retail homage to all clothing mid-century, and am working on a new e-commerce web site to promote it.
One of the most important parts of the site, my home page, will require a photo shoot for which I am desperately seeking a Tucson location. I am looking for an ultra mid-century home with a very Palm-Springs-circa-1962 back yard--preferably with an outdoor patio and pool--around which I can artfully arrange several dress forms featuring some of my most beautiful items. You know, something that looks like the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale. (Tall order, I know.)
Ironically, there were literally dozens of such locations in Phoenix (including the Valley Ho), but I would really like to find a local venue that highlights Tucson, if possible.
Do any of you know of someone with such a home here in the "old pueblo" who might be willing to let me borrow their back yard in exchange for a photo credit on my site?
Any leads are appreciated, as I am currently empty-handed. Thank you so much!
