CHICAGO, IL–Rain or not, it won’t dampen prospects for an exciting new market coming to Chicago June 17. Vintage Garage Chicago is coming to a parking structure in Uptown, which means the weather won’t have an impact on the six month selling season.
“I’ve been a dealer at vintage markets for years,” says promoter Melissa Sands. “It makes an incredible difference whether or not a market is covered.”
Sands predicts the series of summer events will become a staple for antique shoppers in Chicago.
For the public, Sands says the covering means you don’t have think about changing plans if the skies turn cloudy. For dealers, they don’t have to worry about the bright sun damaging merchandise, or about covering items quickly should sprinkles, or worse, a downpour arrive.
“Summer weather can be unpredictable,” Sands says. “The covering is going to help make Vintage Garage Chicago be the consistent ‘go-to’ event in the city.”
The Garage will be held June thru October on the third Sunday of each month. The hours will be 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and the event will be held at 5051 Broadway, in Chicago between Argyle and Foster.
Vintage Promotions, LLC also operates the Dallas Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show, held twice yearly in Grapevine, Texas. Melissa Sands also promotes the North Shore Flea in Highwood, Illinois. More information and a dealer application can be found at www.vintagegaragechicago.com.
