UNIVERSE TRADING COMPANY
Greg Portman, Star of Savannah Values
By Glenn Arnette, lll
There are many celebrities in the world, but there is only one Greg Portman. Now you are probably wondering who this “Greg” might be.
First of all he is a man with a good eye for a bargain.
Second, he has the most unique store in Savannah, Georgia open for 28 years as the Universe Trading Company.
Located at 27 Montgomery Street, this unique store has the most unusual eclectic items from around the world. I would consider this one of the best movie prop houses in the South. You would never believe how wonderful his collection is and what it offers to those people seeking exceptional historic and period furniture, antiques, potter, statues and more.
I was shopping in the City Market area and spotted this store out of the corner of my eye. What a discovery. I could have stayed there all day. As a matter of fact, it would take a day to go through all of the rooms packed full of interesting items. My discovery was a Colorado Teakwood couch and two chairs and a small relic of the Wurlitzer Juke Box to add to my collection.
This is a celebrity hangout, as on any day you might just run into some of the biggest names in entertainment. Stars shopping the store have been Sandra Bullock, Gregg Allmon, Paula Dean, Daryl Hanner, Joan Baez, Naomi Judd, Z.Z. Topp and a few hundred others. It is like the gathering place in Savannah and certainly one of the most unbelievable shopping experiences you will ever enjoy!
For information you can call Greg at (912) 233-1585. If you are looking for something special to fill a corner or place in a room, something for your garden or something for your family china, you will find it at Universe Trading Company. I just loved this place.
