Two veteran, homegrown retailers are teaming up to open a vintage clothing store in downtown Harrisburg.
Stash Vintage and The Midtown Dandy will operate a joint shop on S. 3rd Street, in the SoMa (South of Market) neighborhood, it was announced today.
“Finding the right space to open our doors was essential to launching our joint venture,” said Andrew Kintzi, owner of The Midtown Dandy. “We’re excited to bring our vision to Harrisburg. SoMa seemed like the ideal spot.”
Kintzi will join Stash Vintage in about 700 square feet of storefront space at 11 S. 3rd St., a building owned by Harristown Enterprises.
The Midtown Dandy, which specializes in secondhand men’s clothing and accessories, has been a regular vendor at the Harrisburg Flea, while Stash has had two previous locations downtown. Both also sell online.
“The new partnership will be a great rebirth for Stash, being that we were initially a collective,” said Anela Bence Selkowitz, owner of Stash Vintage. “And our new location will allow us to create a new voice.”
Brad Jones, CEO of Harristown, said that he expects the store to open later this fall.
“The SoMa neighborhood and its surrounding downtown environment has over 60 newly leased apartments and several wonderful food and beverage establishments,” Jones said. “This new vintage boutique will be a perfect addition to SoMa, which is growing quickly into a destination neighborhood.”
Just yesterday, Jones cuts the ribbon on Harristown’s newest apartment project, The Bogg on Cranberry, which features 12 one- and two-bedroom units at the corner of N. 2nd and Cranberry streets. All the units were pre-leased.
Harristown soon will begin work on renovating two more buildings on the 100-block of Pine Street, adding another 69 apartment units downtown.
