Bay area concert goers who are users of the popular social network Facebook may have noticed an interesting event pop up in their newsfeeds on Thursday afternoon.
"Vintage and Used Group Yard Sale at New World"
On September 16.
We all know that the iconic Ybor City venue is ending its nearly 23-year run in the historic district and relocating to a bigger spot six miles away. We know that a four-story mixed-use residential, retail and restaurant is set to go in (fun!, not). And we know that the fine folks who've booked shows at the spot for a couple decades are bowing out with a big blowout concert on September 23.
But selling all the cool shit inside of the place, too? Not so fast, buddy.
The event page's description explicitly states that none of the decor that's made New World one of the coziest — if not thee coziest — places in Ybor City is not for sale. That's right. You can't buy James Brown, the "Brews On Tap" sailfish or the RCA dog. The froggy foursome? Fuck off, why don't cha?
None of its for sale, but you you should be able to see it down the line.
"It's all going to the new location," the venue added.
So what can you expect to buy? Well from noon to 4 p.m., a bunch of vintage clothing, housewares, tchotchkes, and much more — duh. It's all part of a group yard sale (think swap meet with better beer) where a buncha creative types peddle all the shit they don't want anymore before buying somebody else's junk. A fantastic Americana lineup will provide good tunes for you afterwards.
