A vintage clothing store is relocating in the SoMa neighborhood in Harrisburg to expand its offerings. 

The Midtown Dandy & Stash Vintage announced plans to relocate from 11 South 3rd St. to 25 South 3rd St. to increase floor space and expand its inventory. 

Owners Andrew Kintzi and Anela Selkowitz said in addition to vintage clothing and household goods, their new venture, “Found Collab” will promote reuse and discovery by bringing together curators, artists and small-batch makers.  

Offerings will include more vintage clothing and housewares as well as greeting cards, unique gifts and hand-made items, Harrisburg-specific items, local coffee and teas, body care and art-related, one-of-a-kind items as well as up-cycled and hand-dyed clothing, they said.  

“We are very much looking forward to this new venture and the challenges and opportunities a bigger space will allow us. Our goal is to create a destination to help improve Harrisburg and our community, not just to sell vintage clothes,” Kintzi and Selkowitz said. “We will support other creatives, provide a comfortable, humble, and novel atmosphere for people to spend some time and find something they love, as well as host art shows, a music night or offer a workshop, all under the same roof.”  

Brad Jones, president and CEO of Harristown Enterprises Inc., said the SoMa neighborhood has been revitalized and has become a downtown destination, with a host of activities happening throughout the year. 

 “We are so pleased that Midtown Dandy and Stash Vintage are expanding, creating an even greater draw to South Third Street,” Jones said.  

Harristown has invested more than $20 million in the SoMa district over the past 20 years, which now includes Boneshire Taps @ SoMa, El Sol Mexican Restaurant, Veterans Multi-Service Outreach offices, the Harrisburg Soniqs “LAN Gaming Center,” the Narҫisse Theatre Company, and over 160 renovated apartments.  

In addition, the UPMC Health Sciences Tower at Harrisburg University’s $100 Million 11- story project is close to completion and getting ready for occupancy.
