Leftover Luxuries Popping Up at 134 Orchard Street
We learned last month that Alphabet City watering hole Keybar is presently angling to secure an outpost at 134 Orchard Street. The new concept is reportedly a Hungarian menu with hours until 4 am every night. Before we could learn more about the meat and potatoes of the venture, however, ownership withdrew its on-premise liquor application from Community Board 3.

In the meantime, the former home of Daniel’s Leather II is instead biding its vacancy time by entertaining the pop-up tenant Leftover Luxuries. This alliterative business is basically a roving consignment concept dealing in interior design (home furnishings, etc.). Operations for the three-year-old company are actually based in Charlottesville, Virginia, but owner Wendi Smith hosts sale events in various states.
Leftover Luxuries will host its temporary shop from April 27 through May 6, 10 am – 8 pm.
More about the business model per the website:
The business works like this: People with items to sell register with Smith beforehand so she can approve the items. The seller sets prices, with Smith taking a standard 40 percent commission. Smith also charges a $25 registration fee for consignors.
The sale runs for 10 to 12 days. Consignors have two days to pick up any unsold items.
