Vintage Garage Returns For Its Fourth Year In Uptown

It was far from a sure thing, but we're delighted to hear that Vintage Garage will be back for another summer of showcasing retro, kooky, unusual and memorable items at the Aon parking garage, 5051 North Broadway.  Here's what we heard today from its founder, Melissa Sands:

"On April 19, Chicagoans can peruse 100 of the best vintage dealers in the Midwest with everything from antiques to Mid Century, vintage furniture, industrial, art, vinyl, vintage clothing, jewelry and anything in between.

Going into its 4th season, the Vintage Garage is the city’s only all vintage monthly market and draws vintage lovers from all over Chicago and beyond.

“The North side has quickly become the best vintage shopping in Chicago.  Within a one-mile radius of the Garage I count at least 30 vintage/antique or thrift shops. This is going to be the summer of vintage Uptown,” says Melissa Sands, owner of the Vintage Garage.  

New to The Vintage Garage this year, FLATS Chicago - Chicago’s community-focused real​ ​estate group that has a mission to bring big style to smart spaces - will be supporting the​ ​growth of The Vintage Garage Chicago by utilizing local partnerships and encouraging small​ ​businesses to exclusively partner with Vintage Garage. “We understand the importance of​ ​community and excited to shine a light and showcase vintage and art on the northside at the​ ​Vintage Garage,” says FLATS Chicago co-founder, Jay Michael.

Vintage Garage Chicago is held on the 3rd Sunday of the month April through October. This year’s dates are, April 19, May 17, June 21, July 19, August 16, September 20 and October 19. The address is 5051 N Broadway. Take the #36 N. Broadway bus or the Red line to Argyle."
