Visiting The Antique Garage West 25th Market In New York City

The Kitschy Collector Loved Shopping At The Antiques Garage

I finally got a chance to visit The Antique Garage West 25th Street Market in Manhattan and really had a GREAT time. The market is located on West 25th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues) and is open 9 AM -5 PM every weekend.

Loved The Lower Level Of The Antique Garage

After strolling through the upper level, The Kitschy Collector ventured down to the lower level and felt an immediate adrenaline surge. I was in junk heaven. You couldn't peel me away (even for lunch). I was like a kid in a candy store with eyes wide open, exhilarated as I made my way up and down the aisles poking through boxes of fresh finds and kibbitzing (chatting) with the New York dealers.

Meet Ronnie Who Owns Several Booths On The Lower Level Of The Antique Garage When You First Enter The Garage

The very first vendor (Ronnie) you will see as you walk down the ramp to the lower level has got fabulous retro stuff including kitchen collectibles, jewelry, vanity items, clothing, pottery, toys, dolls, textiles etc. Ronnie told me it takes her hours to set up her multiple booths and hours to pack her wares up on Saturday to return again on Sunday. But she does it each week and spends a good deal of time making her collectibles look quite attractive.

You'll Find Attractive Antiques As Well As Plenty of Amazing Vintage Treasures Piled High....It's All GREAT

Having a beautiful booth is not the norm for most vendors who sell on the street or in indoor markets in New York. But at The Antique Garage you will find a mixture of vendors with very unusual and interesting collections as well as dealers who pile the junk up in mounds for your to pick through. It is all there for the buyers to sort through.

The same people who run The Antique Garage also manage The West 25th Street Market and The Hell's Kitchen Flea Market
