I’ve been picking up a friend’s dog the last couple of days from Wagtime on 9th Street near the Convention Center. I noticed that the vacant space a couple of doors down was starting to fill up with antique or salvaged furniture. The windows still had the “space available” signs on the windows so it wasn’t clear what was going on. Would you happen to know anything about it?
Unfortunately, I believe this is just a temporary thing. This one is located next to the Longview Gallery on the 1200 block of 9th St, NW. I’ve seen this usage at many vacant retail spaces in Penn Quarter. Basically, it’s a furniture sale for a month or so. Usually the quality of the pieces vary but looking in the window – these seem pretty nice. Ultimately the space gets leased out. I think one of the the ones I saw in Penn Quarter became Pi Pizzeria and the Pannini spot. This one is a huge space so it’ll be interesting to see who ultimately leases the space.
