After a few weeks of curbside pickups and sidewalk sales, East Village Vintage Collective (EVVC) will open its doors for business today here at 545 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B.
In an Instagram post, owner Maegan Hayward said they'll test the vintage waters this week to see how it goes. Ahead of the reopening, they've rearranged the shop's displays to make it safer and more accessible for patrons to browse.
We’ll have hand sanitizer & gloves available for all customers. We ask that you don’t come in without a mask on and that you observe social distancing while shopping
Can’t wait to see some familiar & new faces and to show you all the work we’ve done to the store!
During the past three months, EVVC closed their Jacksonville outpost to focus on the original shop here. They've also been creative, teaming up with 70 local artists to launch Art Through Vintage, a collaborative online auction.
For now, EVVC will be open 1-6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
In other vintage store news, 9th St. Vintage is now open from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday... and on the same Ninth Street block between First Avenue and Second Avenue ... Spark Pretty is open from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
