Biography:
President and CEO Linda Kraai, a dedicated connoisseur and collector herself, traces her interest in history and antiques back to a young age, which inspired her avid lifelong study of the field.

Professionally Linda worked for many years in the corporate environment where through various management positions in key areas such as accounting, payables, receivables, purchasing, cash control and treasury operations, she successfully learned all aspects of operating a multimillion dollar company, while gaining excellent business training and experience for future entrepreneurial endeavors.

After additional education, training and certification by the Gemological Institute of America, the world's foremost authority in gemology research and education, Linda began her first independent venture specializing in antique and estate jewelry.

Shortly thereafter, to better capitalize on her extensive business experience and wide antiques knowledge base, Linda expanded to a larger storefront in the historic Sellwood antique district of Portland, Oregon where she was able to offer a full line of general antiques and collectibles. For many years she also participated in a number of prominent general, as well as specialized antique shows, all over the Pacific Northwest.

Consecutively co-owning and operating several other businesses during these years further increased Linda's business acumen.

Extensive travel throughout the United States, Europe and Mexico continues to contribute to her broad antique and history knowledge base, as well as provides an opportunity to obtain wonderful, unique inventory.

Her online antique shop, Divine Antiques, is a vital source for discriminating interior decorators, fashion industry designers, Hollywood's elite, movie costumers, clothiers, trade professionals, collectors and others who appreciate the divine and exceptional.

She maintains a number of professional affiliations, including the Vintage Fashion Guild, the Fashion Industry Network and National Association of Professional Women, to name a few.

Linda, a devoted mother, proud grandmother and dedicated wife of more than 30 years is passionate about supporting programs that assist the needy, disabled, veterans and especially children.
