CAMP VERDE - When DeAnna Brody moved from Newport Beach, Calif., to her new home in the Verde Valley, she planned to retire.

"I guess that didn't really work out," Brody says in jest.

Rather than completely leave the workforce, Brody opened up Modern Vintage, selling "gently-used furniture and accessories - with a designer touch." And Brody did not need to look very far for items to sell.

"This is all leftover furniture from my home in California," Brody says. "When I run out, I will probably do consignment."

Brody describes the inventory at Modern Vintage, not as traditional southwest, but "more of a transitional look. We have a little bit of everything."

Brody opened her store two weeks ago in the Wingfield Plaza, 564 Main St., suite 112. Considering that Brody had not initially planned to go into business in the Verde Valley, she says, "I have always loved a new challenge."

After 45 years as an interior designer, this is Brody's first time in the retail business. Because of that, and her initial relocation plan to retire, Brody's business plan for the next five years is to enjoy "all the new people and events of a small town.

With a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Environmental Design at Arizona State University, Brody is back in Arizona. "This is a very pleasant community," Brody says of the Verde Valley. "People here at the Wingfield Plaza have been very accommodating. It feels great to be immediately accepted.

"This is a fun adventure," Brody says of Modern Vintage. Her business is "small enough so where I can enjoy it without it becoming a huge project."

With her background in design, Brody says her new business is ideal for her. Brody likes to help people design their homes, likening it to "fulfilling a client's needs. There are lots of reasons to help people design their homes. It's fun for me to gather these things and put them together, to put together a new look."
