The Antiques Garage In Chelsea
Even if you’re not in the market for a vintage victrola, you must, must, MUST carve out an hour during your weekend to visit The Antiques Garage in Chelsea. Living in the city seven years, I’m a bit
embarrassed SHAMED to admit that this was my first time to the Garage, but let it be known, it will most certainly not be my last! Every weekend, 100+ vendors gather in the parking garage, selling everything from vintage postcards to antique cameras to your great-grandmother’s wedding dress. Let’s just say, there’s no shortage of stuff to further clutter up your apartment.
My favorite part was checking out the clothing. I particularly loved this bold colored accordion style dress, circa 1960′s, being sold by an eccentric redhead with a zest for time-honored threads. While I couldn’t justify shelling out the $85 the frock was going for, I surely hope someone else gets the chance to saunter in it poolside this summer, Cosmo in hand, stilettos on feet, shades covering face, doing a stunning impression of Megan Draper from Mad Men.
