The name says it all. Good Deal Garage is quite literally an old auto garage converted into a sort of warehouse-like store filled with antiques and vintage finds, priced well and generally negotiable. I have been frequenting this not-so-little gem for about seven years, stopping by to browse the latest pieces. Elvis, the store owner, refinishes a lot of the furniture he finds, so there’s a good mix of restored or rehabbed furniture along with plenty of “as-is” finds. Despite the fact that the space is filled end to end, it’s pretty well organized. There is far more than just furniture, too. I have bought paintings, frames, tools, stools, dishes, even a vintage camping stove from Good Deal Garage, and I’ve probably bargained down the price at least half of the time.
There is also a small room decorated kind of like a teenage club house, probably once the office of the old auto garage, where you’ll find vintage clothing of all styles — leather jackets, fedoras, scarves, ties, dresses, vests, tracksuits, tap shoes, you name it. The selection rotates pretty often, so if you’re local, it doesn’t hurt to visit regularly. If you like hunting through a wonderland of random finds, fixer-upper furniture projects, and funky old folk art, make a trip to Good Deal Garage. Even if you don’t go home with anything, you’re likely to see some cool stuff and perhaps even pet the resident cat!
