Midtown Home & Vintage Market in new location
The business that was Junk at 811 N. Fourth St. is now Midtown Home & Vintage Market, in the former location of Joann Fabrics north of Safeway at 1003 N. Fourth.
The 15,000-square-foot space (vacant six years) allows owners Matt Bright and Megan Eatock to house all their local vendors and grow with new ones with vintage, modern, retro, primitive, locally handcrafted, farmhouse style, furniture, gifts and home decor.
The grand opening is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, with live music, treats, giveaways and a raffle. Regular hours will be 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
And across the street from Safeway ...
Construction has started on a two-level, 5,000-square-foot building at 1022-1092 N. Fourth St. (across from Safeway).
Estimated for completion in the spring, the building will be multi-tenant probably with businesses on the first floor and offices on the upper.
“It fits into the conduciveness of midtown style,” said Duffy Smock of Windermere Realty. He can be contacted at 208-699-5466.
