Garage Sale Vintage bringing its nostalgic vibes to the Bowery

Photo from November 2022

The East Village is getting another vintage clothing option — and one with beer and wine.

The owners of the chainlet Garage Sale Vintage have plans for a new outpost at 302 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston.

Per its website:
Garage Sale Vintage was founded on a passion for nostalgia. You'll discover curated items from vintage vendors across the US — from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and Y2K era. You can shop from an unbelievable selection of vintage records and vinyl.
There are also locations in Denver, Boulder and Nashville. (The above photo is from the store in East Nashville.)

While the other shops offer a full bar (margaritas being a specialty), the Bowery space seeks a beer-wine license. They'll appear before Community Board 2 tomorrow.
According to the application (PDF here), the store's cafe area will have four tables seating eight people and a 10-seat bar.

No. 302 previously housed Olde Good Things. This outpost of the architectural artifact dealer specializing in reclaimed building materials and antiques arrived here in 2013 and left in early January 2023. Lines New York, a "tattoo atelier," currently leases the space.

Meh. Seems like this is taking the concept of a 1970's Canal Jeans and adding booze and coffee, only at a very much higher price tag.
I like the concept though, get drunk while shopping to eliminate any hesitation of forking over all those bitcoins. ;)

“Curated” vintage with a liquor license. Well it’s a long way from Canal Jeans rents these days and I guess you gotta have a gimmick as the bump and grind ladies said in Sweet Charity,
