Antique Sugar Vintage Relocating to Roosevelt District
Antique Sugar Vintage Clothing, five year staple of the Melrose district, will be relocating to the Roosevelt district at the beginning of April.
A target opening date of April 3rd (first friday) has been set for the new shop located at 801 N. 2nd St, pending completion of construction. At nearly 2000 square feet, the new space will be able house the boutique’s extensive collection of men’s and women’s clothing that spans the 20th century. The vintage clothier will be sharing the building, formerly offices built in the 1950’s, with a Bar/Arcade and an architectural firm.
Co-owner, Sarah Bingham, says “The move will be bittersweet for us. We’re going to miss our partners in crime at Zinnias so much, but we’re super excited for this new chapter and to be a part of all the amazing things that are happening downtown.” Similarly, Annamarie Sanchez, co-owner, states “I’m sad to be leaving Melrose, but I feel like it’s the right decision with the way downtown is growing. I’m looking forward to the exciting new environment.”
Antique Sugar will be open in it’s original location, inside Zinnias at Melrose Antique Mall, through the final weekend in March. The owners plan to maintain a booth of their signature vintage clothing and accessories at Zinnias for the foreseeable future.
