Judy Bailey had an idea to take a vacant storefront and put it to good use, turning years of stored treasures into Sewickley’s newest pop up store, The Attic.
Bailey is the owner of , located right next door, and the former boutique. She and friend Natasha Green decided to clear out some of the items they have collected or held onto over the years, and put them up for sale.
“We have such a conglomeration of things,” Bailey said.
Green described the store as an attic and garage sale in a shop, hence the name “The Attic.” Everything is priced to sell, she said.
The store carries a hodgepodge of vintage, antiques and collectibles. Items range from a bird house and a brass bed to children's items and window panels.
Bailey said her collection added up from more than 40 years of being in business.
“There’s a little bit of everything in here,” Bailey said.
The space is being leased for a month with plans to close at the end of August, but there is a possibility the store could stay open beyond the month.
The Attic is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. If the store is closed during regular hours, stop by Soho next door.
