Like vintage? Looking for a retro Halloween costume? How about a retro aluminum Christmas tree from the 1950’s? Or the coup de grace, two wooden stadium seats from Wrigley Field. Vintage Garage Chicago has it all. You never know what you’ll find. Vintage Garage Chicago is literally held in a parking garage at 5051 N. Broadway.

The sale/show features 100 vintage and antique dealers, selling anything and everything vintage, from midcentury furniture and decor, to retro fashion, jewelry and more.

We went last month and found some great bargains and fun retro items to bring home. Here are some of the things that we didn’t buy.

These two wooden seats were part of Wrigley Field for over 50 years. We were told that they are very scarce as most of the original wooden seats were destroyed by improper storage shortly after their removal in 1986.

All the rage in the 1950s—this aluminum tree has survived decades and may be the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your Christmas.
