East Village Buyers moving from 3rd Street to Avenue A

Photos and reporting by Stacie Joy 

Thanks to a reader tip, we know the new tenant for the under-renovation retail space at 39 Avenue A

The East Village Buyers consignment shop will be moving from 150 E. Third St. between Avenue A and Avenue B to the previous Essex Card Shop storefront between Second Street and Third Street. 

Owner Gabriel Shaulov (second from left in the above photo) told me that he hopes to be in the new space in about a month and that he'd been waiting for more than two years to access the much-larger retail spot in the NYCHA-owned First Houses

The business model will be the same: a high-end consignment shop specializing in sneakers, jewelry and handbags, among other items.

Love this trend of specialty retail moving onto the avenues (1st and A mostly) lately. Nice combination with the galleries that are increasingly move in around A and B.
