You may have noticed some new activity inside the old firehouse on Broome Street that was, until last year, being used as the headquarters for movie production supply business Angel Aerial. From time to time, the company throws the big doors open to the public for a rummage sale of sorts. This week there’s another one of those opportunities.
The merchandise spread across the entire building is not your average “garage sale” junk. There’s antique furniture, offbeat housewares, movie props and various other odds and ends. Jim Miller, Angel Aerial’s owner, said he wants to clear the place out so the firehouse will be available for film shoots. Several months ago, he moved the bulk of the supply business to Long Island City. The building is managed by the city. It sits on a portion of the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area, so this might also be a good opportunity for you to have a look at a firehouse with a date with a bulldozer in the next few years.
The firehouse is located at 185 Broome (at Clinton). Miller is planning to keep the place open for shoppers between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on most days (until the merchandise is gone).
Have a look at some of the items available for sale, after the jump.
