When I first came across The Story Garage on Niagara Street, I spoke to owner Neil Gerard about the possibilities of creating a market atmosphere on the corner. You see, The Story Garage is located on Market Square in Black Rock, a location that once served the neighborhood’s market needs.
This coming Saturday, April 30, Gerard is hosting his first ever Vintage Sidewalk Sale, where he will feature 25 vendors (possibly more). The sidewalk – thus Market Square – will come alive with the sound of barkers and marketeers, as they interact with people looking for “all things vintage!”
The Story Garage is a little gem of a shop in Black Rock. Actually, it’s a pretty huge shop, as Gerard has expanded his thrifty, mainly-furniture and accessories business, into the entire footprint of the storefront that faces Niagara Street.
Being a retro anchor on the street was all that Gerard needed to attract like-minded vendors to sign up for the pop-up sidewalk market.
“The sale is all things vintage, with a focus on vintage clothing,” said Gerard. “I put out a single request for vendors and we now have 25!”
