For the best vintage Chicago, the Garage has it all! The dates for the Vintage Garage 2015 season are April 19, May 17, June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20 and October 18th. Each month we create some vintage bonus fun with an added theme. This is in addition to all the great vintage vendors already bring. Dealers save their coolest, in that special category, for that month. They still bring all types of vintage merchandise in all categories each and every month. You will always find vintage furniture, mid century modern, vintage clothing, vintage jewelry, toys, decor, art and more from all eras. Check out the theme info below.
April 19 – Season Opener
Our first show of the season! Dealers will bring all their best vintage for the kick off of spring. The Garage is covered so no umbrellas or tents needed. The last 2 years, April has been chilly. It’s one of our busiest shows of the year so we know everyone is ready but the secret to success is layers and good solid warm boots. We’ll have hot chocolate ready.
May 17 – Mid Century Modern
In addition to all varieties of vintage, dealers bring all the great mid century items they’ve been hoarding just for this show.
In addition to all types of vintage, dealers bring vinyl records they’ve been hoarding just for the June or October show. A group of dedicated records dealers join us in a special section for the event. Our other vendors add records to their always evolving inventory. There is always a ton to choose from.
In addition to all types of vintage, dealers bring Tiki, Rockabilly, Hawaiian that they’ve been hoarding. People dress in their best Rockabilly or Hawaiian outfits and our DJ is spinning great swing and jazz all day. Our Rockabilly best dressed costume has been a hit with prizes and lots of competition.
August 16 – 1985
In addition to all sorts of vintage, dealers bring their coolest 1980’s item, dress in their favorite 80’s outfit and we spin the tunes celebrating 1985. I can’t believe it’s been 30 years since Madonna and “Crazy for You” and Ferris. We bring it back for one day, August 16th.
In addition to all varieties of vintage, dealers will be saving up all their “Retro Chicago” merchandise, paper, signs, Chicago sports teams memorabilia and more! Old Chicago Magazines, Trib Magazines, Cubs sweaters and fan wear. Souvenirs, postcards. All vintage Chicago and retro things that feature Chicago.
Our season finale! in addition to all types of vintage dealers bring vinyl records they’ve been saving. We have a final market of the season and frenzied shopping occurs.
