Antique, furniture and home décor lovers in the area can enjoy shopping for items to put in their homes and offices in Woodbury.

This weekend The Garage will open again at 2673 Woodbury Pike.

The Garage is a family run business opened year round, one Friday night plus one weekend a month.

The Garage features refurbished and upcycled furniture and home décor.

Lisa Jay of The Rusted J and Marcy Smith of Walnut Tree Lane started The Garage after being vendors for several years at different locations.

“We wanted to move back to our roots,” said Smith. “We both live minutes away.”

Smith and Jay curate each item with the goal of engaging guests’ imaginations.

Smith and Jay invite everyone to visit The Garage to browse collections from The Rusted J, Walnut Tree Lane, and the featured vendors of the month.

Each item at the garage is more than furniture and home décor, they are art created by the vendors.

Upcoming weekends and Fridays are Nov. 21-22 at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dec. 4 at 5 to 7:30 p.m., and Dec. 12-13 at 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

From the outside, The Garage is what you would expect. Simple construction with industrial concrete floors, plumbing, and cinder block walls.

“We had searched some time for a unique location that we could make our own, unlike any other shop in the area,” said Smith.

On the inside, it is a getaway from the chilly fall and winter temperatures.

While they provide rustic home accents, The Garage also focuses on supporting local smalls businesses.

Each time The Garage is open, it will feature different vendors, in addition to The Rusted J and Walnut Tree Lane.

Each month they welcome different featured vendors to join.

This weekend includes Yuletide Treasures vintage Christmas décor, Gahagan Farms LLC fresh pine arrangements and wreaths, and Curiosities Crafted resin jewelry.

They also want to embrace the community by showing some love to those in it in some way.

For November, they are the collection site of blankets for Wraps of Love, created by Lydia Barton, to donate to a local women’s shelter.

On Sunday from 1 p.m.- 3 p.m., shoppers will have the chance to get a custom, hand letter piece on the spot by Marcy of Walnut Tree Lane.
