HISTORY OF THE CHELSEA ANTIQUE MARKET
Back in the 80s and 90s eight parking lots would transform into vintage-antique markets overnight, showcasing over 800 dealers from New York and neighboring states. Dealers would arrive at 2 a.m. to set up their space for the weekend crowd to browse their rare finds. While those days are long gone, ZTrend will reveal to you the remaining places for you to shop and browse for the unusual, the bizarre and the unique.
NOTE: This shopping day will end in Chelsea near Eataly located across from Gramercy Park.
TIP: Once your shopping day has adjourned, take time and discover the many art galleries of Far West Chelsea. The Chelsea Art District is a wonderful way to spend leisurely time with a friend.
