Sara Gehris has been turning retail spaces into creative vintage collectives for over 15 years. Sara's new endeavor is URBAN FLEA MARKET which houses over 25 local talented dealers. The store is playfully laid out with different theme rooms, including the PHSYCHEDELIC hallway, the TIKI ROOM and the MAN CAVE, just to name a few. The secret sauce to Urban Flea Market is not only a very cool, hip, and swanky vintage store, it is a visual, creative, FUN experience, Covering all decades, and appeals to all age ranges and demographics.
The new space is over 4,500 s ft. Sara's challenge was to transform the space in 6 weeks, which required endless hours of elbow grease, and sheer determination. It was also the old Pascuccis restaurant. The building itself lends itself perfectly with its quirky details and it’s architectural features. Sara hopes to open up San Francisco Urban Flea Market by 2023. She is just looking for the perfect space...
