The Peddler, Elmwood Avenue's retro, vintage and antique furniture and accessories market, is looking to be up and running year 'round. In order to do so, we are looking for a suitable indoor location that would have adequate space (around 3000 sq.'), is reasonably priced, heated, has bathrooms, and is visible and secure. We figure that there are plenty of older buildings around that are in need of a Saturday-Sunday tenant, and this is the sort of market that can draw people en masse if the location is right. It would also be nice to have loading capabilities so that sellers can handle the load-ins and outs without having to be exposed to the winter elements and exhausting treks too much.
At the same time, we're also looking for sellers (with Tax ID numbers) who are willing to sign up for an indoor space. If that's of interest to you, please send me a note
so that we can notify you if and when we find a location. The warm months at the corner of Elmwood and West Ferry (every Saturday) have been rather delightful, and we want to carry on with the momentum that has been growing. We still have a number of remaining Saturday shows for anyone looking to be a seller outside.
Dr. Calabrese of Parish Commons, our sellers, the neighborhood, the Elmwood Village Association, Zoning Board, Councilmen LoCurto and Rivera, have all been key behind the effort to make The Peddler a success and we hope to create a fun-filled destination in a similar manner indoors this winter.
