THE GREEN SHAG MARKET...REPURPOSE, REUSE, RECLAIM
I'd like to introduce you to The Green Shag Market, the newest and only antique mall located within the city limits of St. Louis, Missouri. There are several antique malls in the area, just not in the city. Fortunately, this one is only 10 minutes from my home. Not only is it close, it has an automatic door which opens when I walk up the RAMP! Note the emphasis on the word ramp! No steps! There is also a loading dock to back up to and unload larger items.
Located on an industrial strip of Manchester Road, the stretch between Kingshighway and Hampton, there is plenty of traffic. Only a minute or two from both major highways 40 and 44.
5733 Manchester Road
St. Louis, MO 63110
Open Wed.-Sunday 10-5.
It's only been open since November and is already busting at the seams. I started out with a single booth, but just upgraded to a double. Still not full, but working on it! It is a large corner booth (#20) that can be seen from the front door and leads into the consignment area.
A closeup of the large primitive unit I purchased and then couldn't fit into my truck! lol! What a day that was! I removed one of the doors because it was blocking the aisle.
I have to bring a wardrobe in to fill this wall and I've added a glass display case since I took these photos.
My neighbor booth is overflowing with vintage clothes and tons of retro items. She also has an etsy shop LovesLoves2LoveLove that specializes in funky & chic vintage clothing,jewelry,accessories,decor, memorabilia & more!
I found another blog post on The Green Shag with several nice photos by Mr. Modtomic. I just found this blog and will definitely be adding it to my blog roll! Be sure to check it out, especially if you love retro and mid century items.
Check for frequent updates and more photos on The Green Shag Market's facebook page and their website.
