Narnia Vintage Pop-Up at 129 Rivington

Posted on: January 13th, 2011 at 6:09 am by

Ever since the locksmith shop went bust over a year ago, 129 Rivington Street has become quite the successful host for pop-up shops.  Between bouts of dormancy, four separate temp stores and/or sample sales have occupied the storefront. And with each incoming vendor, the Everybody’s Going to Heaven signage remains intact.

And now a fifth player is suited up and ready to play.  Indeed, tearing a page directly from the playbook of its 161 Rivington storefront-mate Honey in the Rough, Narnia Vintage has relocated part of its team to hawk a selection of items for a “mega sale.” The pop-up endeavor began last Saturday and will continue through January 16; daily hours are from noon to 8 pm.
